1. What I Want

From the recording Compass, Dresses, Lover; Gone


What I Want

I am troubled
By a pain in my chest
I’ve for too long suppressed
Now it’s taking me in

I am worried
That I wont make it home
That I will drift on alone
With no ink in my pen

‘cause everybody wants me to be
What I am not, but I am not
My hairs a mess, I’m broke but I’m free
And I have fought, I have fought

I am waiting
For the best things to say
For the right chords to play
I’ll try to do it my way

But everybody….

I listen closely
to the night
Wait for peace and light

But everybody…
