Memphis May Fire – Wanting More lyrics

[Verse 1]
I want it, I got it,
It's like I just can't get enough.
I see it, I need it,
More of whatever keeps me numb.
I feel it consuming ,
But I'll ignore that till I die.
I want what they have and,
I won't stop until it's mine.

[Pre-Chorus]
I fear myself
Becoming calloused and unable to feel.
Greed takes over;
I lose control and question what is real.
I want more than I need, the American dream,
Take and take until I have everything.
Now I'm covered in greed,
And the reflection I see,
Doesn't look like the man I want to be!

[Chorus]
I spent my life chasing after things
That I fought for and now I'm torn,
Cause none of it has ever satisfied my soul,
It just leaves me wanting more.

[Verse 2]
I know that it's wrong but,
It feels so right, I can't deny.
I'm losing this war with,
My self-indulgent life.

[Bridge]
What if I gave it all away,
And shed the layers of the selfishness I hate?
I want to be free but I'm so afraid (I'm so afraid),
That I am too far gone and I'm stuck with all
The choices I have made.

[Hook]
There has to be more to life,
Cause I got it all, and never got it right.
There's got to be more than this,
Tell me there is something that I missed.

[Chorus]
I spent my life chasing after things
That I fought for and now I'm torn,
Cause none of it has ever satisfied my soul,
It just leaves me wanting more.
I gave myself to things I thought I loved
But they never gave me enough.
Now I'm right back where I started from,
I'm so sick of wanting more.
I'm so sick of wanting more!

[Bridge]
Want and want and want,
Until we want to die
Because we never find
What we're looking for.
What are we looking for?
Consume, consume, consume,
Until it consumes us.
Want and want and want.
When will it stop?
(When will it stop?)

[Outro]
I spent my life chasing after things
That I fought for and now I'm torn,
Cause none of it has ever satisfied my soul,
It just leaves me wanting more.
I gave myself to things I thought I loved
But they never gave me enough.
Now I'm right back where I started from,
I'm so sick of wanting more.
(Wanting more, wanting more)
