Everything You Own
-Ezekiel Jay

It’s been a lifetime of begging
For me and the fortunate ones
It’s been a lifetime of faking the grade
An A can get you in the front door
It’s been a childhood of looking
At the girls who were taller than me
Lonely days cursing my genes
It seems a moment ain’t destiny

You wanna change the world then change your home
You wanna lift your heart then move your bones
You wanna get the girl then wear her clothes
Because unless you feel, you’re just for show
You wanna serve yourself then serve your time
You wanna open up then blow your mind
You wanna roll in riches make a pile
Of everything you own

Spent the middle years worried
A mistake would be the end of me
Decades searching around this town
For the parade on Easy Street
I spent last night greedy
And this morning hung over as hell
Suffering without a cause
I lost my keys to the room upstairs

You wanna change the world then change your home
You wanna lift your heart then move your bones
You wanna get the girl then wear her clothes
Because unless you feel you’re just for show
You wanna serve yourself then serve your time
You wanna open up then blow your mind
You wanna roll in riches make a pile
Of everything you own

Everything you own
Everything you own
