When I wake, I wanna be a child
Ache about the small things and break down for awhile
Walk beside my mother and watch my father smile
Argue with the other kids and make my girlfriend cry

Joy and happiness
Joy and innocence in never knowing what exists
Beyond our own backyard

When I wake, I wanna be a man
Hair upon my face and a hammer in my hand
Raise a couple kids and live off of the land
Have a woman in my bed who knows I'm doing the best I can

Joy and happiness
Joy and loving kindness
Joy in the peace of mind when I lay my head to rest

We're drifting, driving our cars over the bridge
We're sifting through all the remains
We're drifting, driving our cars over the bridge
We're lifting the weight off our shoulders

Slow down, take another line
These things don't come so easy, it takes a little time
Satisfy your body and ignore your mind
Satisfy your body and you just might find

Joy and happiness
Joy and loving kindness
Joy in the innocence
Joy and happiness

    General CommentJosiah leaked this song on his myspace August 14th. Sorry you can't hear it, lol. But maybe it'll be on the album.

    Thanks Josiah!
