Carole King – God Only Knows lyrics

Looks to me like
I'm flyin' in a pattern I want to break
Sometimes I feel like
I've given enough, now I want to take
It's makin' me crazy
Thinkin' about where it's all gonna lead
And I wonder
If we're gonna get what we need
God only knows

You're travelin' easy
Keeping your mind in an amber haze
But there's so much between you
And the natural land up on which you were raised
It's easy to turn your head
And not think about when it all comes down
Don't you wonder
If you're gonna be around
God only knows

Maybe it's not for me to understand
Maybe destruction is part of the plan
Well, I don't really see
How it can be
Why it should be, I don't know
I just don't know

I can't stop dreamin'
About leavin' it all behind
Maybe I'll never get there
Except in my mind
It sure makes me angry
To realize that I'm caught in a game
I used to love everybody
Now it's so hard to do through this pain
And I wonder
If I'll ever be the same
God only knows
