The first time I gazed upon that glorious thing It made we wanna dance and
I Whirled and twirled and laughed til I cried, I was so ecstatic until I
It was not mine nor would it ever be.
Then a storm of emotion swept over me
My heart was broken, my hands were tied, my one desire had been denied
Maybe it's a dream, maybe it's a thing, maybe it's something that you've
Maybe it's happiness, maybe it's love or maybe yer waiting for something to
Come from above
Maybe it makes you feel like you never succeed, maybe it makes you feel
Like you never get what you need.
It's a feeling that comes from within, it's universal between women and men
We just wanna be loved, we just wanna be whole, we just wanna get back what
We feel like was stole from us as a child when we got schooled.
Man that wasn't fair, that wasn't cool
There ain't no rule, there at no law that says we ever get what we want at
We all know life ain't fair but we forget it when desire becomes despair
