Well, like I said before
Pay up your money and you ask for more
But there's no reason
Yeah, no reason

I can't say goodbye
Tried all too hard and it made you cry
Yet, I've been cheating
Yeah, I've been cheating

Like before you threw me out the door
And I couldn't see behind me
Like before when I asked for more
I couldn't be myself

Still singin' this song
Baby can't you do me wrong
Music is my food and life
Don't take it away

I want the world to see
I don't care when it will be
There's no doubt
I wanna go to the sun, everyone
Yeah, you start to look old

Sand and sea, will do it endlessly
I will never, turn it away
Well, salty air seagulls everywhere
I wanna live there one day
But I'm still singin' my song
Baby won't you do me wrong
Music is my food and life
Don't take it away

I want the world to see
I'm about
I don't care when it will be
I'm alright
I wanna go to the sun, everyone
I'll tell you what you must do

Solo

I want the world to see
I'm about
I don't care when it will be
There's no doubt
I wanna go to the sun, everyone

I don't know what I can do
I wanna go to the sun, everyone
I don't care when it will be
There's no doubt
I wanna go to the sun, everyone
I'll tell you what I must do

Solo

I want the world to see
I can't know when it will be
I don't know when it will be
I don't care when it will be
I wanna go to the sun

I don't care when it will be
I want the world to see
I want everyone to see
I want everyone to see
I want everyone to be
What I want to be
I want to be free

    I think it's about a struggling musician. He told his girlfriend (or wife) that he gave up his love ("music is my food and life") and pursuit of a music career, but he's still at it behind her back ("yea, i've been cheating"). "i wanna go to the sun" is a metaphor for making it in the industry, maybe by being able to buy a place on the isle of wight ("i wanna live there one day")? Far fetched? Maybe.
