Jeff Black – What Do I Want lyrics

All of my life
I've been tempted I've been torn
What's wrong and what's right
Since the day that I was born
And god knows when I was lonely
I was easily deceived
What do I want what do I need

Knocking on wood
Leaves me standing in the rain
So misunderstood
God I've lost my way again
Through the darkness of old notions
It's such a pitiful reprieve
What do I want what do I need

Freedom from the devil's chain
Freedom from temptation's reign
Freedom from the overwhelming
Feeling that evil never sleeps
What do I want what do I need

I cross my heart
I am not the only one
And right from the start
Everything under the sun
It dies by some desire
And faith to some degree
What do I want what do I need

I need to be free
I need to be free
I need to be free
