the whole thing lyrics – carolyn dawn johnson

i spent my whole life trying to make
a little feel big enough
a drop here a touch there
trying to make it all add up to love

you can’t jump in the water
with one foot out and one foot in
i think i’d rather just be alone
than to try and love that way again

i don’t want just a corner
i don’t want just a piece
don’t want a little taste
i don’t want a little peek

half way or half of
is just not good enough for me
oh, i want the whole thing
yeah, i want the whole thing

so if you got something that you wanna say
well, baby, this would be the time
are we or aren’t brave enough
brave enough to lay it all on the line

anytime you gamble
there’s a chance you might get hurt
or you might just find
that forever kind of love
that we both deserve

i don’t want just a corner
i don’t want just a piece
don’t want a little taste
no, i don’t want a little peek

well, half way or half of
is just not good enough for me, no
i want the whole thing
yeah, i want the whole thing
yeah

one more crumb
that won’t fill me up
one more sip
that won’t fill my cup

don’t ask me for another night
’cause, baby i can’t
i’m tired of calling cabs in the morning light
with my high heels in my hands

i want the whole thing
yeah, i want the whole thing
i need the whole thing
yeah, i want the whole thing
