Gordon Downie - Wolf's Home (2017)


Hey kids wolf's home
He drops into his easy chair
Stares up out blank
Then bids his family come and gather' round his chair
Then clears his throat
No one knows quite what to expect
Says 'Man's a god'
When he dreams and a beggar when he reflects

My life of get and get
Got more than most and yet

I didn't run
I didn't vanish when I was afraid
I never asked
How many out there
I only asked where are they

My life of get and get
I've got more than most and yet

I got great touch
I learnt to vanish when I was afraid
I don't know much
I don't try not to try
I don't do what I hate

My life of get and get
I've got more than most and yet

Throw the heart in targets
steady I got started
All the broken-hearted
All i want is the dearly departed
All the hurts I started
Young and old fool-hearted
All I want is all I've been afforded
My life, my love restored it
It's its own reward but

All i want is you
All I want is you
All i want is you
All I want is you...
