I Wanna Live – Lyrics

i wanna live

 

train rolls by i hear the horn, shakin my bed in the early morning

dogs bark and tell the story that, i’ll never know

rain fallin on my lawn, everything i knew is gone, it’s a

shadow of a song that, i’ll never know

 

two a.m. and i can’t sleep, all your words around me creep and they’re

makin it so i can’t keep my, feet on the ground

 

another dead-end day goes by, now i’ll never wonder why i

haven’t seen the other side or, even heard a sound

 

and the train rolls by and the rain rolls by again

and my feet are up in the two a.m. dead-end

 

and i wanna live by the ocean its a notion that i had

i wanna feel the sun shinin upon my skin and know that it aint bad

i wanna live in a condo ride my honda down the street

i wanna feel the sand squishin beneath my feet as i walk along the beach

as i walk along the beach

 

livin in a one-bed flat, down by the laundromat, but i

never woulda told you that if you, didn’t turn me on

another summer night goes by, probably never wonder why i

haven’t seen the other side, or even heard a sound

 

and the sky so high it’s burnin my eyes again

and my feet are up in the two a.m. dead-end

 

chorus

 

down at the turnaround, where you laid your lover down, i see

faint traces on the ground of the way, it used to be now

 

chorus
