loving things like you has wrecked my life, made me cry
loving things like you has made me lose my mind
and i can’t figure out why i’ve been hanging on
to all these things i’ve tried to leave behind me for so long
and i think it’s time to find a better way to live my life
than loving all those thingsthat keep me wrapped so tight
everyone wants everyone else’s eveything
some time’s the more we have the less we really gain
i’m tired of life and all that money has to buy
get out of my heart, out of my mind, leaving you behind
loving things like you has left me bruised, black and blue
loving things like you has made me so confused
and i can’t figure out what i’ve been waiting on
god i can’t be living for things i know are wrong
now i think it’s time to write a better chapter in my life
leaving all those things that keep me wrapped so tight
why are we obsessed with possessions here on earth?
go and take a look at the flowers and the birds
god is always taking care of nature’s every need
and how much more important in the father’s eyes are we?
i said, how much more important in the father’s eyes are we?
he sees everything
