Letter, The Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All I ever wanted was some love and peace and harmony
I could dance in the raw in the sun underneath the stars
When I walk over to my money tree
Ain't nobody there tryin' to take from me
When they ask, "Are you truly free?" I'd say, "Yes, truly"

But down here in reality
Everybody knows there ain't no such thing
And it's clear, it's obviously
This is not the place I'm supposed to be

On and on and on I've searched
What I'm lookin' for is not here on earth
I can't stand, I can't take no more
So I know that I gotta go

So long everybody, Mama don't be sad for me
Life was a heartache and now I am finally free
Don't know where I'm headed, hope I see you someday soon
So long everybody, I have gone beyond the moon

All I ever wanted, love and the peace and the harmony
Just to be, to live and shine, when I get ready I up and fly
And I can't remember none of the things that I want to forget
It's the best satisfaction no less, ask if I'm free and I'll say, "Oh yes"

But down here in reality
Everybody knows there ain't no such thing
And it's clear, it's obviously
This is not the place I'm supposed to be

On and on and on I've searched
What I'm lookin' for is not here on earth
I can't stand, I can't take no more
So I know that I gotta go

So long everybody, Mama don't be sad for me
Life was a heartache and now I am finally free
Don't know where I'm headed, hope I see you someday soon
So long everybody, I have gone beyond the moon

Before I do, just one more look at you
It's worth the stay, but I'll meet you later at that better place

All I ever wanted was, all I ever wanted was
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted was

So long everybody, Mama don't be sad for me
Life was a heartache and now I am finally free
Don't know where I'm headed, hope I see you someday soon
So long everybody, I have gone beyond the moon

So long everybody, Mama don't be sad for me
Life was a heartache and now I am finally free
Don't know where I'm headed, hope I see you someday soon
So long everybody, I have gone beyond the moon

So long everybody, Mama don't be sad for me
