I got more than I asked for
 There ain't nothin' I need
I took all till I had more
I'm always takin' the lead

Old man shakin' dice down on the street 
Try'n to make a livin' somehow 
But I'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
And I'm gettin' ready right now

You can't hold me
I have told you
 Might just take your life
 Might just take your life 

I've been called by many names 
And all of them are bad 
I can take it all the same
It's all I've ever had 

I've got somethin' that you can't get
But one thing you can see
Gettin' there ain't easy
But it sure was hard for me 

You can't hold me
I have told you 
 Might just take your life
 Might just take your life 

 Every time I take a look
There's someone close behind 
They never used to make a pass
The things that crossed their minds 

Now they tell me that it's all right 
And they want to be my friend 
They're ridin' on my back 
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me
I have told you 
 Might just take your life
 Might just take your life
 Might just take your life 

Got more than I asked for
Got more than I need 
Got more than I asked for
Got more than I need 
Got more than I asked for
