"Too Much of Anything" as written by and Pete Townshend....
I think these hands have felt a lot,
I don't know, what have I touched,
I think these eyes have seen a lot,
I don't know, maybe they've seen too much.

I think this brain has thought a lot,
Searching, trying to find the crutch,
I think this heart has bled once too often,
This time it's bled a bit too much.

Too much of anything, too much for me,
Too much of everything gets too much for me.

I can't remember before '49,
But I know that '48 was there,
My ears let in what I should speak out,
Hmmm, there's something in the air.

Ooh, I've overloaded on my way,
Bye, bye, bye, bye, you better keep in touch.
Think your ears hear a whole lot of music,
And like me they've caught a bit too much.

Too much of anything, is too much for me,
Too much of everything gets too much for me.

I think these hands have felt a lot,
I don't know, what have I touched,
I think these eyes have seen a lot,
I don't know, maybe they've seen too much.

I think this brain has thought a lot,
Oh, searching, trying to find the crutch,
I think these ears hear a whole lot of music,
And like me they've heard a bit too much.

Too much of anything, is too much for me,
Too much of everything gets too much for me.

    General CommentI love this song and I never really considered this but yeah, I think Pete could have made this even better if he had the lead vocal. Roger's delivery is always quite dramatic while Pete's, maybe by sheer necessity, is more understated and intimate. That probably would have worked even better on this one.

    General CommentThis song can possibly be my wedding song...its truly an amazing yet underrated song...Roge's voice gives me the chills..

    Its about living/loving/losing...what we all go thru in endure some certain kind of pain, whether it be a little or alot...
