Richard Marx

Richard Noel Marx (born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American adult contemporary and pop/rock singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He had a stream of hit singles in the late 1980s and 1990s, including "Endless Summer Nights", "Right Here Waiting", "Now and Forever", and "Hazard". Although most of his major hit songs were slow ballads, many of his songs had a classic rock style, such as "Don't Mean Nothing", "Should've Known Better," "Satisfied," and "Too Late To Say Goodbye". Marx placed himself in the record books by being the first solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (3, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 4).

Got a house full of fortune and they pay me in gold
For something I'd do for free
But there's still something missing that a
man can't hold
It's like a weight over me

So scared the thrill will be gone
But I'm the one who keeps the pressure on

[Chorus]
All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I'm tired to the bone
All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I know I'm not alone

Well, I'm sick of walking 'round with blood in my eyes
Just keeping up with this town
I' m a roadrunner racing, but I don't see the signs
I've got to learn to slow down

My life makes it hard to complain
But there's times I'd take my school days back again

[Chorus]

Four o'clock  and I'm still counting sheep
Love to change the system, but I'm in too deep
I keep the pressure far away as I can
But it still comes back again, back again, yeah, yeah

My life makes it hard to complain
But there's times I'd take my school days back again

[Chorus]

All I've got is all I need
But I get no sleep and I'm sure I'm not alone
I'm not alone, yeah
