Orleans – What I Need lyrics

Just give me the earth underneath my feet
And the sun up in the sky above
And let me eat from the fruit of the land
And stand beside the one I love

What I need
Is all I'm askin' for
What I need
I wouldn't ask for more
It's not greed
To ask for what you need
Oh no

Just let me drink until I quench my thirst
And fill my lungs with clean, fresh air
Let one star be mine alone
That I am free to follow anywhere

What I need
Is all I'm askin' for
What I need
I wouldn't ask for any more
It's not greed
To ask for what you need
Oh no

I wouldn't ask for more
Than to know what I'm living for
I wouldn't ask for more
'Cause men have been greedy
Too many times before

Just let me work and live my life in peace
'Cause I mean nobody I'll
And let my sorrows carve out hollows
For my happiness to fill

What I need
Is all I'm askin' for
What I need
I wouldn't ask for any more
It's not greed
To ask for what you need

I said what I need
Is all I'm askin' for
What I need
I wouldn't ask for any more
It's not greed
To ask for what you need
Oh no
