Written by John Mellencamp

Sometimes fly a little high,
Then you know better dig yourself.
Sometimes get a little lost,
Then you know you got to find yourself.
Happens to everyone and Lord, I don't know why.

I want, I want,
I need, I need.
I want, I want to live,
To see it all,
Laugh, touch it all.

Sometimes we say silly things,
And act like two little kids.
Like the tail wagging the dog,
We both get hurt by what was said,
That's okay, that's allright with me,
I'd rather fight with you than lay down and die.

I want, I want,
I need, I need.
I want, I want to live,
To see it all,
Laugh, touch it all.

I want, I want,
I need, I need.
I want, I want to live,
To see it all,
Laugh, touch it all,
To live, to see it all.
