Some fifteen year old kid sits on his porch
Just half-past noon, trying to figure out just what he's doing
Why he had to grow up so soon
With all the gangs, all the guns, watcha gonna learn in school?
There's got to be some way out of here
He says, "Man, this life is cruel"

I knew this Puerto Rican girl who lied to change her life
She changed her name, her face
Because the grass looked greener on the other side
She turned her back, she ran away straight into the night
Her friends, her family feel the pain but she's the one who cries

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I want everything

I've had enough of having nothing, I won't take just anything
I got my mind set on something, all I want is everything
It's my life Mr., I ain't running, I'm no puppet on a string
I want more than I see coming
All I want is everything, all I want is everything

My next door neighbor Donnie
Died in his room just the other day
His brother come home
Found him dead on the floor with a needle in his vein

Cops come down with a body bag
They said Donnie was a casualty
I said, all it's about is the boy checked out
He couldn't handle reality

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
I want everything

I've had enough of having nothing, I won't take just anything
I got my mind set on something, all I want is everything
It's my life Mr. I ain't running, I'm no puppet on a string
I want more than I see coming
All I want is everything, all I want is everything
