What you are you can never erase
It's here til the end of time
What you lost you will never replace
Still you're trying to find

You don't do it for god
You don't do it for love
You're back on the street because

It takes you there
It takes you there
It takes you there

What you have will never be enough
You will always want more
But lift me out, over one more night
All I want is what I was before

I don't do it for god
I don't do it for jesus
I'm back on the street because

It takes you there
Takes you there
It takes you there
Takes you there,
Oh

I had a dream
I know it seems so absurd
We all live in a house on a hill
Nobody has to say a word
I wake up
It's the middle of the night
The room is opening with love
I try to hold on to this golden light
But I fall hard from above

I don't do it for money
I don't do it for god
I'm back on the street because

It takes you there
Takes you there
It takes you there
Takes you there
Takes you there
Takes you there
Takes you there
Takes you there
