Ascension Theory – To Be Content lyrics

I tried so hard to sleep last night
But rest eluded me
So many problems on my mind

If I knew what I know now
I might not have begun
I don't know how to turn back now

In this life I lead
Even when all things are right
There's always something else
My soul will reach out for - I can't understand
Why I'm not glad to be content

The image of your face
Sent from miles away
Haunts me everyday

I want to know the things you see
How different your life must be
Things will never be the same again

My spirit longs to be set free
Why is there always more to need
Why did I go and change everything
Why do I see my life in your eyes
Why can't I be glad to be content
