Gone forever to the races
Pull your money out
Call your mother, tell her something
Never go without

Pause a moment, just a moment
Smoothing down your hair
Gone forever to forever
Feeling like despair

You wanted to, you wanted to
You wanted to be, oh
You wanted to, you wanted to
You wanted to be

You work so hard just to light a little flower
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Just to make things happen for a reason
(You wanted to be, oh)
Just to get so tired

Just to feel every itty-bitty
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Goddamn bone in your body
(You wanted to be free)

Wonder at the numbers that you
See upon the wall
Take for granted all you know and
What you can't recall

Call me honey, I don't mind
I guess I feel the same
Pull me under, kiss me hard
Pull me into frame

You wanted to, you wanted to
You wanted to be, oh
You wanted to, you wanted to
You wanted to be

You work so hard just to light a little flower
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Just to make things happen for a reason
(You wanted to be, oh)
Just to get so tired

Just to feel every itty-bitty
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Goddamn bone in your body
(You wanted to be free)

You work so hard just to light a little flower
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Just to make things happen for a reason
(You wanted to be, oh)
Just to get so tired

Just to feel every itty-bitty
(You wanted to, you wanted to)
Goddamn bone in your body
(You wanted to be free)
