Got a house full of fortune and they pay me in gold
For something I'd do for free
But there's still something missing that a
man can't hold
It's like a weight over me

So scared the thrill will be gone
But I'm the one who keeps the pressure on

[Chorus]
All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I'm tired to the bone
All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I know I'm not alone

Well, I'm sick of walking 'round with blood in my eyes
Just keeping up with this town
I' m a roadrunner racing, but I don't see the signs
I've got to learn to slow down

My life makes it hard to complain
But there's times I'd take my school days back again

[Chorus]

Four o'clock and I'm still counting sheep
Love to change the system, but I'm in too deep
I keep the pressure far away as I can
But it still comes back again, back again, yeah, yeah

My life makes it hard to complain
But there's times I'd take my school days back again

[Chorus]

All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I'm sure I'm not alone
I'm not alone, yeah
