Too much singing for my living tonight
Do a song for friends and company
Too much is the matter with giving on spite
Here's one for the giving and the other for free

The straw that broke the camel's back
Is blown upon my window sill
I may look beaten but I don't look back
When you break my heart
You feed my will

This should be an instrumental
But it seems I've made up words
Though they have a way of getting in the way
What a way to be absurd
It's a way of being heard

Too much is the matter with giving on spite
Here's one for the giving and the other for free

Too much time for resting easy
Not enough to sleep all night
In the shooting star I take the dreaming weighs me down
The doctor's right, is the doctor ever right

Oh god I need to swallow you whole again
I've gotta mend the old soul again all I need is some inner peace
Oh god I need to swallow you whole again
I've gotta mend the old soul again all I need is some inner peace
Oh god I need to swallow you whole again
I've gotta mend the old soul again all I need is some inner peace

Give the soul a way to fly...sooth the eyes of memory
Let's give it all for an answer why
If you reach the heaven the spirit's on me

Too much singing for my living tonight
Do a song for friends and company
Too much is the matter with giving on spite
Here's one for the giving and the other for free
