I wake up every morning, bright and early
Roll out of bed but I'm never quite alone
Tension is pulling me in all directions
And all the probems use me as a rope
Sometimes the pressure will just drive you crazy
At any time I could explode
I need some piece of mind, it's got me tired
Don't wanna lose it, but I'm turning down that road

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

I sit in traffic every single morning
Just as I arrive, I'm slaving to the grind
Making the money so I feed my family
But I can't raise them, 'cause I ain't got the time
I got no free days on my busy schedule
I turn the page and it's the same
Don't like my situation, you don't either
Don't wanna look back, scared of workin' life away

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

But every now and then
I drive alone
An open road
Hot summer day
A gentle breeze that feels alright
On the road
And I can't feel the pain
On this train
Enjoy the sights
I feel alive
When actually here just feels alright
Far from home

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

    Life can get stressful, but in the long run, everything will turn out alright. My favorite part of this song is the middle, where it's all relaxed.

    I like how when he is explaining stress, the music is very intense, but when he states how everything will turn out fine, the music calms down.

    Beautifully written.

    I think tension is about trying to be the best you can and doing all you can but at a certain point everyone has ups and downs but once its bad it can only get better "a gentle breeze that feels alright, on the road, and i cant feel the pain"

    we feel the pressure of the world on us and its stressing us out so we say we need a moment in our life and when we get that moment, it feels like nothing can touch us
