I just want to get a little more out of my payday
Finally own a car that doesn't break down on the freeway
A little vacation, ain't asking very much

I keep coming home to this old broken down apartment
I wish I had a dime for every hole that's in the carpet
Well I don't want it all, but I ain't got enough

[CHORUS]
All I want is a life
To drink from the glass from the well that ain't dry
I'm sick of the crumbs I want a piece of that pie
All I want is a life

I don't mind the hours and the pain that comes from workin'
But it's enough to kill me when I see my baby hurtin'
Want to give her that diamond, I never got to buy
She keeps tellin' me that everything is getting better
But one step up the wrung and someone knocks me off the ladder
Just want to break even someday before I die

All I want is a life
To drink from the glass from the well that ain't dry
I'm sick of the crumbs I want a piece of that pie
All I want is a life

All I want is a life
To drink from the glass from the well that ain't dry
I'm sick of the crumbs I want a piece of that pie
All I want is a life
