the races lyrics – the bird and the bee

gone forever to the races
pull your money out
call your mother
tell her something
never go without
pause a moment
just a moment
smoothing down your hair
gone forever to forever
feeling like despair

you wanted to
you wanted to
you wanted to be
you wanted to
you wanted to
you wanted to be

you work so hard
just to light a little fire
just to make things happen
for a reason
just to get so tired
just to feel every
itty bitty god d*mned
bone in your body
you wanted to be free

wondering if the numbers that you see
up on the wall
take for granted all you know
and what you can’t recall
call me honey
i don’t mind
i guess i feel the same
pull me under
kiss me hard
pull me into frame

you wanted to
you wanted to
you wanted to be
you wanted to
you wanted to
you wanted to be

you work so hard
just to light a little fire
just to make things happen
for a reason
just to get so tired
just to feel every
itty bitty god d*mned
bone in your body
you wanted to be free

you work so hard
just to light a little fire
just to make things happen
for a reason
just to get so tired
just to feel every
itty bitty god d*mned
bone in your body
you wanted to be free
