lyrics

I heard I could use some healing
give me something to make me well
I've got questions I can't answer
give me something that I can tell

You told me that we were the winners
give me something that I can spend
You told me that there were no answers
give me something that tells me when

I've got you to hold close
and some time to let go
and don't want to feel
what I never should know

and I want to live
and I don't want to lie
give me something--------
to make it all worth while

The streets of Yorkville are cold now
and I'm walking away from the town
I've got people that I need to contact
Give me something to track them down

If everything isn't for pleasure
If everything good comes with pain
If you and I are not brothers
Give me something to hide all the shame

I've got you to hold close
and some time to let go
and don't want to feel
what I never should know

and I want to live
and I don't want to lie
give me something--------
to make it all worth while

I remember when we were both children
And all we could do was sing
In the morning we'd wake with the sunrise
In the evening we gently would fade

Today I was given to envy
Surrounded and put in this land
Give me something that I can return to
Give me something on which I can stand

I've got you to hold close
and some time to let go
and don't want to feel
what I never should know

and I want to live
and I don't want to lie
give me something--------
to make it all worth while

Where are you
I can't see
I need to hear
I need to be
So call my name
Call out loud
Pleaaassseeeee
Give something to me
