What Do I Want What Do I Need

from Side of the Road

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

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

I need to be free
I need to be free
I need to be free
