So I said I'm on the roam so I need a car
And I know that I'm getting alive
And I say I got faith and a season
And I say that's where I'm going to

I get a need and I'm wanting to please it
I got a face and I'm wanting to feel it
The more I feel is the more that I need it
The more I need is the less I believe it

Well I want a good love by my side
Keep on getting out of love and my pride
And I know I keep hurting my love yeah
But I know it ain't killing


So I said I'm on the roam so I need a car
And I know that I'm staying alive
And I know that my faith is a season
And I say that's where I'm living

[Chorus: x2]
