lyrics

Now I Want More by Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests

Silver spoon – not for me, I received the full cutlery set
Because Daddy felt I should not want for the best I could get
The best life, the best education,
surpassing all great expectation
The charmed life for me, that's to be sure -
But I wanted more

And as time drew on, it grew apparent that I was a man
Thus anointed, I took up my place near the head of the clan
The mansions, the baronetcy:
it's the family business for me
We gave them the lad, they gave us a Lord
But I wanted more

Oh, I wanted more, yes I wanted more
At this auspicious hour, I attained my full power
And now, I want more

And in time, sure enough, all of my dearest rivals appeared
But by letting them bathe in my sunlight I kept them all near
Notwithstanding the odd, regrettable fall,
they were largely content to play ball
If you scratch my back, I might scratch yours
But I may want more

From my window I look at this land that is promised to me
Like a young wife awaiting her husband, she's waiting for me
And if she's respectful and serves
then I might give her what she deserves
And when it begins to feel like a chore
I will want more

Oh, now I want more, yes now I want more
Because what's yours is mine but what's mine isn't yours
Yes now I want more
Oh now I want more, yes now I want more
I don't give a toss who gets hurt or gets lost
Now I want more

All the snipers have me in their sights
and my answerphone's daily transcribed
And there's many who've stood in my path
But there's not many who have survived

On a shelf in a hospital ward there's a helium balloon
With a note attached he'll never read that says:”Get Well Soon”
But what that note really should say
Is “You should have stayed out of my way”
I have absolute power over my life and your
And now, I want more

From the album 'I Jumped Ship', released 29 April 2016.
