  • You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    It began when I was twenty-one years old
    And my mom and dad were begging me to go
    So I left a note and we went and hit the road
    Me and Chris and all the stuff I own

    I went out to find my soul and left the only comfort that I'd known
    It wasn't 'bout a girl or even California bleeding
    It was all about me choosing where to go

    And I sing
    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    There were years I felt like everything was new
    Long before the troubles of my youth
    There were days and nights I couldn't see the end
    And I swear the music was my only friend

    You learn to lie about forgiveness
    When you choose to let down all your pride
    I don't wanna be so famous
    I just want to sing until I die

    So sing it
    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    When I wish upon a star
    I'll tell it how I got this far

    It began when I learn how to face myself
    And I'm still deciding if I'm something else
    I'm a million different people all the time
    But there's only one of me to get it right

    I'm gonna get right
    Oh oh, I'm gonna get it right, I'm gonna get it right
    Oh oh oh

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve

    You are never gonna get
    Everything you want in this world
    First things first
    Get what you deserve Writer/s: TYLER GLENN
