what you want lyrics – blue rodeo

woke up from another dream
with the clouds in my head
sat down by the window watched the sunrise burning red

i guess i’m doing alright now
but there’s too much time to kill
i can’t forget you lying there so still

picture back to another time
i see you sitting here
you said would you ever forgive me if i chose to disappear
i turned away and closed my eyes
i didn’t think i could

if that’s what you want i guess i would
if that’s what you want i guess i would

you know i can’t live like everyone else
nothing ever seems that simple in my head
feel myself slipping away
don’t want to wind up helpless in my bed

this time i want to get out and walk but i think i’ll fall

i can see myself in so many ways
but i curse myself instead
was there something i should have done
something else i could have said
you know i tried to change it but i can’t forgive you still

if that’s what you want i guess i will
if that’s what you want i guess i will

you know i can’t live like everyone else
nothing ever comes that simple in my head
feel myself slipping away
tired of waking up lonely in my bed

this time i want to get out and walk but i think i’ll fall
this time i want to get out but i think i’ll fall
