All I Want

Album: What Separates Me from You (2010)
  • I'm always screaming my lungs out 'til my head starts spinning
    Playing my songs is the way I cope with life
    Won't keep my voice down
    Know the words I speak are the thoughts I think out loud

    I like to keep things honest
    I'm a safe bet like your life's staked on it, for real
    I'd hate to keep you all wondering
    I'm constant like the seasons, I will never be forgotten man

    Let's leave no words unspoken
    And save regrets for the broken
    Will you even look back when you think of me?

    All I want is a place to call my own
    To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
    Whoa, you know to keep your hopes up high
    And your head down low
    Keep your hopes up high and your head down low

    Still got something left to prove
    It tends to keep things movin' while everyone around me says
    My last days are looming overhead
    But just what the hell do they think they know?

    I keep my head above the water
    While they drown in the undertow
    Let's leave no words unspoken and save regrets for the broken
    Will you even look back when you think of me?

    All I want is a place to call my own
    To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
    Whoa, you know to keep your hopes up high
    And your head down low

    All I want is a place to call my own
    To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
    Whoa, you know to keep your hopes up high
    And your head down low

    If you take it from me, live your life for yourself
    'Cause when it's all said and done, you don't need anyone else
    C'mon!

    So let's get back to when everything seemed perfect
    Not a worry in the world, tell me was this all worth it?
    I get what I want so everyone's always judging me
    I'm not afraid of anything, I've got the whole world in front of me

    All I want is a place to call my own
    To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
    Whoa, you know to keep your hopes up high
    And your head down low

    All I want is a place to call my own
    To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
    Whoa, you know to keep your hopes up high
    And your head down low

    Keep your heads down low
    Keep your heads down low
    Keep your hopes up high
    And your heads down lowWriter/s: Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Jeremy Wade McKinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Kevin Skaff, Neil S Westfall
