Everything and More

You want me to be everything and more for you

Be your mother your lover and your best friend

But instead I think I’ll go to bed

And lay my weary head down

You want me to understand your point of view

Open my mind and start to think like you

But instead I think I’ll go to bed

And lay my weary head down

I’ve  done everything that I can

Except to be who I am

I’ve tried to do it all your way

I find it’s just a game we play

How can I be anything to anybody else

When I just put my own needs on the shelf

So instead I think I’ll take ‘em down, dust ‘em off

And look around and in...side me

I’m gonna do everything that I can just to be who I am

I’m gonna do it up my way, find out what I have to say

And listen in...side me
