Written, performed and produced by Robert LaSalle

lyrics

why? it's all i wanted
if i was you, and you were me
you wouldn't need to be reminded
you're a human being
you wouldn't kick all the vagabonds off the streets
you've met all the greatest world police
now i know, now i know what it's like to be free
yes, you have just about everything i need
you're shaking hands with the man while i'm spitting in his drink
tracers on a white lie will grow
grow, they will grow (it's all i wanted)
no, i don't like your grimacing smile
no, now i know, now i know, now i know why
every hour provoking me
(every step I beg and plea. why? It’s all I need)
running laps around your feet
no, now i know what it's like to be free
why? it's all i wanted
i painted white roses -you walked down red carpet
i captured the moment, and you just lost it
tracers on a white lie will grow
grow, they will grow
(it's all i wanted -it’s all I needed
-it's all i wanted -it's in)
no, i don't like your grimacing smile
no, now i know, now i know, now i know why
i sat on the barstool frozen solid
i followed misery until i was lost
and did i tell you the story of the poor the boy
with the weight on his shoulders
he took on the world
no i don't like your grimacing smile
now i know just why
nobody likes you -nobody minds
no, now i know, now i know just why
you bought your sorrow
(it will never go never go away)
I’ll find a way
