Everything

If Everything and More has a title track, maybe this is it, eh? It's a simple tune - nothing here but percussion, vocals, some major chords on a single acoustic guitar, and deceptively simple lyrics. But I think it's bigger than just that, at least that's my intention. It's a song about life, work, money, class, society, love, and contentedness.

Lyrics

[First People:]

I am gonna go to work
I am gonna go to work
I am gonna go to work
I am gonna work real hard all day

[Second People:]

I got everything I want
I got everything I need
Even though I live here in a cardboard box
with no electricity

I got everything I want
I got everything I need
Living is easy if you take the time to see
All I we really need is you and me

I got everything I want
I got everything I need
I can't think of anything to wish for
I got all my friends surrounding me

We got everything we want
We got everything we need
Living in this city of cardboard boxes
We got lots of time and we are free

We got everything we want
We got everything we need
Living is easy when we take the time to be
We got love as far as we can see

We - got - love - as - far - as - we - can - see
