Tension Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I wake up every morning bright and early
Roll out of bed but I'm never quite alone
Tension is pulling me in all directions
And these problems use me as a rope

Sometimes the pressure will just drive you crazy
At any time I could explode
I need some peace of mind, it's got me tired
Don't wanna lose it, but I'm turning down that road

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin
We all need a moment in our life
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

I sit in traffic every single morning
Just as I arrive, I'm slaving to the grind
Making the money, so I feed my family
But I can't raise them, 'cause I ain't got the time

I got no free days on my busy schedule
I turn the page and it's the same
Don't like my situation, you don't either
Don't wanna look back scared, I will get away

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin
We all need a moment in our life
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

But every now and then
I drive alone and over all
Hot summer day, a gentle breeze that feels alright
All alone, and I can't feel no pain, only strain
Enjoy the sights, I feel alive, relaxing here just feels alright
Far from home

I need a moment 'cause I've spread myself too thin
We all need a moment in our life
Work's hard, the day's too long
And that's just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time
