RENEGOTIATE

RENEGOTIATE

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS ©2001 ACHTUNES, ASCAP

 

LORD DO YOU FEEL ME WHEN I’M TOSSING LATE AT NIGHT
THERE ARE THINGS I’D LIKE TO SAY BUT I NEVER KNOW IF THE TIME IS RIGHT
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR A MOMENTS REST SO LONG OVERDUE
I BELIEVE IT’S TIME WE HAD A TALK, JUST ME AND YOU

I KNOW YOU’VE GOT A PLAN WITH AN EXCELLENT DESIGN
AND GOD KNOWS I KNOW YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN WORKING OVERTIME
AND I DON’T MEAN TO CRITICIZE OR IN ANY WAY MALIGN
SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL AND CERTAINLY DIVINE, BUT

I’D LIKE TO RENEGOTIATE THE DEAL I HAVE WITH YOU
THERE MUST BE SOMETHING EASIER THAT YOU COULD HAVE ME DO
I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A LOOPHOLE BUT THE CONTRACT IS AIRTIGHT
AND I AM LAID SO VERY LOW I CANNOT SLEEP AT NIGHT
SO I’D LIKE TO RENEGOTIATE THE DEAL I HAVE IN LIFE

I’M NOT ASKING FOR A RAISE OR IMMORTALITY
ALL I’M ASKING FROM YOU LORD IS TOTAL AMNESTY
AND I WOULD NEVER BOTHER YOU TO ASK FOR SYMPATHY
OR CALL YOU ON A BUSY DAY FOR TRIVIALITY BUT

I’D LIKE TO RENEGOTIATE THE DEAL I HAVE WITH YOU
THERE MUST BE SOMETHING EASIER THAT YOU COULD HAVE ME DO
THE DEAL WAS MADE AND THE PAPERS SIGNED BEFORE I KNEW MY RIGHTS
AND IT’S FRAUGHT WITH AMBIGUITIES AND TRAGIC OVERSIGHTS
SO I’D LIKE TO RENEGOTIATE THE DEAL I HAVE IN LIFE
