"The Way I Want To Be" as written by and Irving/youmans Caesar....
I see the sun rising up through a stormy haze
The clouds in my eyes hide the view from this lonely place
All that I see turns to black when I'm on my knees
All that I need turns to dust still I don't believe

That taking the sunrise from the morning
Stealing the water from the rain
Clearing the gutter from the ghetto
All of my life has been the same

All of my life I've lived forever
All of my life I feel no pain
Praying to god that there's no heaven
Give me the water -- the way I wanna be

She's like the sun wakes me up in the pouring rain
She can't be done all alone in the morning rays
I see her clear lights the moon showing in my soul
I see her clear lights the way when I'm coming home

It's like taking the sunrise from the morning
Stealing the water from the rain
Clearing the gutter from the ghetto
All of my life has been the same

All of my life I've lived forever
All of my life I feel no pain
Praying to god that there's no heaven
Give me the water -- the way I wanna be

It's like taking the sunrise from the morning
Stealing the water from the rain
Clearing the gutter from the ghetto
All of my life has been the same

All of my life I've lived forever
All of my life I feel no pain
Praying to god that there's no heaven
Give me the water -- the way I wanna be
