I see you sit and swallow pain
For all of those who will not speak
You raise your voice, you fill the stage
Your eyes are wide

You know the weakness that you've felt
Is not just yours, so many more, you're not alone
The songs you sing are not your own
You lift the room with somethin’ real

You never had it
(You never had it)
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more
(Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more)
You never had it
(You never had it)
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more
(Keep on wantin’)

You never had it
So you hesitate to try and find it
You listen carefully for whispers
Of what lurks behind it

You play the corners, never get too close
To where it might be waitin’ for you
Never had it
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more

Keep wantin’ more
You never had it
Keep wantin’ more
You never had it

Keep hidin’ the hope
And then the pain is not yours
No one's holdin’ the rope
You gotta pull it on your own

All the songs have been sung
And all the doors have been closed
Keep on wantin’ more
Keep on wantin’

Keep on wantin’
You keep on wantin’
Keep on wantin’
You keep on wantin’

And I watch you wander through these halls
You slouch, you shrug, you shrink away
And I call you, stop, you blink, you pause
You wander, who?

You think the day will never end
And when it does you wait up till the building's dark
The doors are locked, you're on the bus
You looked inside but did not touch

You never had it
(You never had it)
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more
(Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more)
You never had it
(You never had it)
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more
(Keep on wantin’)

You never had it
But you know how to provide it
So you stand up and call for it
Nervous, describin’ what you go through

You don’t wanna get caught up in all the
Things they say to try to provoke you
Don’t need anyone to tell you
Keep on wantin’ somethin’ more

Keep wantin’ more
You never had it
Keep wantin’ more
You never had it

Keep hidin’ the hope
And then the pain is not yours
No one's holdin’ the rope
You gotta pull it on your own

All the songs have been sung
And all the doors have be closed
Keep on wantin’ more
Keep on wantin’
