lyrics

several things i wanna do
seem so distant makes me blue
several lives i wanna lead
falter as my fingers reach

put my thumb in rolling stone
look at all the open roads
they say that i’ve gotta fight to make it known

so i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be

many men like jewellery
round my neck i wanna see
laugh when i say i can sing
well where’s the work you’re putting in?

thumb in mouth, i bite it down
so bitterly i want the crown
they say that i've got to fight to pin it down

so i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be

maybe i will get the luck
or courage as they’re propping up
my sinking heart,
my dying art

maybe i will just stand up
and sing a lyric on my deathbed
director snaps says there’s the girl
we’ve waited sixty years for her

put my thumb up i'll accept
cause in ten minutes i’ll be dead
so give me ten for entertainment, and five to mourn what’s left

and i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be
