What Do I Want



What do I want

all of my life
i've been tempted i've been torn
what's wrong and what's right
since the day that i was born
and god knows when i was lonely
i was easily deceived
what do i want
what do i need

knocking on wood
leaves me standing in the rain
so misunderstood
god i've lost my way again
through the darkness of old notions
it's such a pitiful reprieve
what do i want
what do i need

[chorus]
freedom from the devil's chain
freedom from temptation's reign
freedom from the overwhelming
feeling that evil never sleeps

i cross my heart
i am not the only one
and right from the start
everything under the sun
it dies by some desire
and faith to some degree

[repeat chorus]

i need to be free
i need to be free
i need to be free
