more than life

from by John Rankin



First take I ever done
Go on ask me where it comes from
And I'll say I don't know

Go on tell me what you think of the truth
Cause here I sit from my point of view
And it ain't right

We focus too much on ourselves these days
Got addictions but we can't even quell our fate
I got half a mind to say it's been done, and I ain't even going to try

A million miles a minute, only seconds to a definitive finish
And I'm stuck in the middle of it, trying to be more content
But, baby don't you worry, there is nothing like you in my life

Cause I look at you
And you see me through
to the point where I believe that I can fly

Cause I look at you
And I see right through
So much more than my life
