"Ambition" as written by Christopher Cain and Keith Murray....
Lately I've been measuring mistakes that I've been making
It's classical over-reach in stretch way beyond my station
Wherever I've been drinking lends a small amount of solace
That's emblessly ? proportional to how badly I want it

So long ambition
It's not a competition
I can't win anymore
I can't win anymore
An odd position
That I got the suspicion
I have been here before
I have been here before

Every single word from you is uncomfortably appealing
And reservations telling me to forget what I'm hearing
Part of me is screaming, you should just come out and ask her
As if there were a chance in hell that got me what I'm after

So long ambition
It's not a competition
I can't win anymore
I can't win anymore
An odd position
That I got the suspicion
I have been here before
I have been here before

For my imagination is a moving ? cloud all working over time
This kind of aggravation just seems perfectly designed to keep me up at night
It keeps me up at night
It keeps me up at night
Alright

So long ambition
It's not a competition
I can't win anymore
I can't win anymore
An odd position
That I got the suspicion
I have been here before
I have been here before
I have been here before
I have been here before

    General CommentI think it's:
    "For my imagination is unnervingly inclined to working over time
    This kind of aggravation just seems perfectly designed to keep me up at night"

    Lyric CorrectionI think these are the correct lyrics:

    Lately i've been measuring mistakes that i've been making
    It's classic over-reaching, stretching way beyond my station
    Whatever i've been drinking lends a small amount of solace
    That's inversely proportional to how badly I want it

    So long ambition
    It's not a competition
    I can't win anymore
    I can't win anymore
    An odd position
    That I have the suspicion
    I have been here before
    I have been here before

    Every single word from you's uncomfortably appealing
    And reservations telling me to forget what i am hearing
    Part of me is screaming, you should just come out and ask her
    As if there were a chance in hell to get me what I'm after

    So long ambition
    It's not a competition
    I can't win anymore
    I can't win anymore
    An odd position
    That I have the suspicion
    I have been here before
    I have been here before

    For my imagination is unnerving me in clouds all working over time
    This kind of aggrevation just seems perfectly designed to keep me up at night
    It keeps me up at night
    It keeps me up at night
    Alright

    So long ambition
    It's not a competition
    I can't win anymore
    I can't win anymore
    An odd position
    That I have the suspicion
    I have been here before
    I have been here before
    I have been here before
    I have been here before
