LyricsEdit

I wake up every morning bright and early

Roll out of bed but I'm never quite alone

Tension is pulling me in all directions

And all these problems use me as their own

Sometimes the pressure will just drive you crazy

At any time I could explode

I need some piece of mind, it's got me tired

Don't wanna lose it, but I'm turning down that road

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin

We all need a moment in our life

Works hard, the days too long

And that's just where it begins

Tension has had us all this time

I sit in traffic every single morning

Just as I arrive, I'm slaving to the grind

Making the money so I feed my family

But I can't raise them, 'cause I ain't got the time

I got no free days on my busy schedule

I turn the page and it's the same

Don't like my situation, you don't either

Don't wanna look back scared, I'm working life away

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin

We all need a moment in our life

Works hard, the days too long

And that's just where it begins

Tension has had us all this time

But every now and then

I drive alone

An open road

Hot summer day

A gentle breeze that feels alright

All alone

And I can't feel no pain

Only strain

Enjoy the sights

I feel alive

Relaxing here just feels alright

Far from home

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin

We all need a moment in our life

Works hard, the days too long

And that's just where it begins

Tension has had us all this time
