"Restless" as written by and Chris Pardy Tom Beaufoy....
i felt restless and i felt soft
didn't know anymore who I was ripping off
the packed in picnic lacked seriously on food
had more wine than i knew what with to do.

i just dont know what it is
i just dont know what it is
to be free
to old and have somebody lean on me

can blame it on your teachers
you can blame it on the weather
can blame it on how your mother and your father didn't stick together

someday darlin its got to make sense in your head
can't make up your mind till you wake up and make your bed

and
i just don't know what it is
i just don't know what it is
to be free
to hold and have somebody lean on me

one day i felt so good nothing could bring me down
next morning i awoke i was plastered to the ground
whistle your favorite tune when it's all said and done
if your maker dont approve at least you know you've had your fun

and i just dont know what it is
just dont know what it is
to be free
to hold and have somebody
to be free
to go out singing in the rain
to be free
to believe completely in somebody
to be free
to let love win again

    General Comment-corrected lyrics, I think-

    I felt restless and I felt soft
    I didn't know anymore who I was ripping off
    I packed a picnic lacking seriously on food;
    had more wine than I knew what with to do.

    I just don’t know what it is
    I just don’t know what it is
    To be free, to hold, and have somebody
    Lean on me

    Can blame it on your teachers
    You can blame it on the weather
    Blame it on how your mother and your father didn't stick together

    Someday my friends it’s gonna make sense in our heads
    Can't make up our minds till we wake up and make our beds

    And
    I just don't know what it is
    I just don't know what it is
    To be free, to hold and have somebody
    Lean on me

    One day i felt so good nothing could bring me down
    Next morning i awoke i was plastered to the ground
    Whistle your favorite tune when it's all said and done
    If your maker don’t approve at least you know you've had your fun

    And I just don’t know what it is
    Just don’t know what it is
    To be free, to hold and have somebody
    To be free to go out singing in the rain
    To be free to believe completely in somebody
    To be free to let love win again

    General CommentCelia is more correct, but one thing i noticed is that Slim changed the original lyrics a bit on his new album,
    the line "Someday darlin' it's got to make sense in your head, can't make up your mind till you wake up and make your bed"

    to
    "someday my friends it's got to make sense in our heads, can't make up our minds till we wake up and make our beds"

    I still think it sounds better the original way.
