All I need's a little time
To get behind the sun and cast my weight
All I need's a piece of this mind
I can celebrate
All in all there's something to give
All in all there's something to do
All in all there's something to live
With you
With you

All I need's a little sign
To get behind the sun and cast this weight of mine
All I need's a place to find
And there I'll celebrate
All in all there's something to give
All in all there's something to do
All in all there's something to live
With you
With you
