Tension



I wake up every morning, bright and earlyRoll out of bed but I'm never quite aloneTension is pulling me in all directionsAnd all these problems use me as their ownSometimes the pressure will just drive you crazyAt any time I could explodeI need some piece of mind, it's got me tiredDon't wanna lose it, but I'm turning down that road
I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thinWe all need a moment in our livesWork's hard, the days too longAnd that's just where it beginsTension has had us all this time
I sit in traffic every single morningJust as I arrive, I'm slaving to the grindMaking the money so I feed my familyBut I can't raise them, 'cause I ain't got the timeI got no free days on my busy scheduleI turn the page and it's the sameDon't like my situation, you don't eitherDon't wanna look back scared I'm workin' life away
I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thinWe all need a moment in our livesWork's hard, the days too longAnd that's just where it beginsTension has had us all this time
But every now and thenI drive aloneAn open roadHot summer dayA gentle breeze that feels alrightOn the roadAnd I can feel no painOnly strengthEnjoy the sightsI feel aliveRelaxing here just feels alrightFar from home
I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself to thinWe all need a moment in our livesWork's hard, the days too longAnd that's just where it beginsTension has had us all this time
