I don't know how to leave you
And I don't know how to stay
I got things that I must tell you
That I don't know how to say

The man behind these empty words
Is crying out in shame
Holding on to this sinking ship
Where nothing else remains

All I want is everything, am I asking too much?
All I want is everything, like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays, tomorrow never comes

It's hard to hold your head up
When you're kneeling down to pray
And talkin' don't come easy now
When the words get in the way
And if you could see what's going on
Behind these private eyes
The truth would look so easy now
But I'm running out of lies

All I want is everything, am I asking too much?
All I want is everything, like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays, tomorrow never comes

You think the shadow of doubt is hanging over my head
It's just an angel whose wings hide the sun
And it's myself I betray, I cannot wish this away
Took my chance, now the damage is done

All I want is everything, am I asking too much, yeah
All I want is everything, like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays, tomorrow never comes
