Duncan Sheik — That Says It All lyrics

Hit the town, still dressing down
Looking for some action
Mr. Jagger said it best
He knows you'll never get... No satisfaction
But Mr. Dylan knows
That everyone is more or less... A rolling stone
And Mr. Lennon, so quiet, knows better
... Or so I've been told

That says it all, doesn't it?
We always want what we never get
Well listen here, my friend
I can't continue to pretend that it's alright
'Cause that ain't right
That ain't right

I hear you're gona make it big, rake it in
With your master plan
Mr. Hendrix understood
Those are only castles made of sand
Mr. Wilson took some pills
... And I don't blame him
It's hard to be alive
... And Mr. Page, how he played
Mr. Drake stayed up late
... And made me cry

That says it all, doesn't it?
We always want what we never get
Well listen here my friend
I can't continue to pretend that it's alright
I can't continue to pretend that it's alright

No matter what we get
We never find our happiness
Ain't that a crime?

Maybe that's why I've been told
Since I was six years old to compromise
But that ain't right...
That ain't right
