lyrics

I used to work
everyday
to fill my house with
shit i dont need
i punch a clock
and he’s a thief
who wants to sell my
time back to me
but i wont sell myself short anymore
gonna wake up in the morning knowing what I'm here for
and i say
what the hell are you working for?

i used to run
everyday
from all my flaws
i wanna change
and as the miles
passed behind
the road before me
just wasn't mine
so i wont force myself down a different path
gonna wake up in the morning happy where im at
and i say
what the hell are you running for?

i used to hurt
everyday
from all the anger
and all the pain
and as my thoughts
turned to spite
thought this is how
im gonna die
so i wont waste my life feeling bitter and cold
gonna wake up in the morning loving every single soul
and i say
what the hell are you hurting for?

i used to pray
ever night
asking god
to set it right
but as i woke
woke to world on fire
im thinking god
must be tired
so you can put those prayers right back on me
gonna wake up in the morning be the change i wanna see
and i say
what the hell are you praying for?
just go do it

i used to search
everyday
for what i lost
what got away
and as i dug
dug for something new
i found my answers
were hidden in plain view
so as im taking stock of my days and nights
i got my babies and their momma and a pretty good life
and i say
what the hell are you searching for?
