Elton John - All That I'm Allowed (I'm Thankful) Lyrics




Breaking down never seems to be that hard
Falling short is always in the cards
I'm on the road, sunrise is at my back
Lost it all somewhere between the cracks

I always hoped that I'd do better
That I'd come out on top for once
We all get what we deliver
Then there are the lucky ones

And I've got all that I'm allowed
It'll do for me, I'm thankful now
The walls get higher every day
The barriers get in the way
But I see hope in every cloud
And I'm thankful, thankful
I'm thankful, So thankful
I'm thankful, I've got all that I'm allowed

Leaving town gets to feel just like a job
My desire never winds up on top
I can say now I didn't want the moon
It's out of reach somewhere beyond this room

I always hoped that I'd do better
That I'd come out on top for once
We all get what we're delivered
Then there are the lucky ones

And I've got all that I'm allowed
It'll do for me, I'm thankful now
The walls get higher every day
The barriers get in the way
But I see hope in every cloud
And I'm thankful, thankful
I'm thankful, so thankful
I'm thankful, I've got all that I'm allowed

I always try to make things clear
Then I watched as progress starts
I only hope I'm standing here
When heaven finally comes to call

    Gay really shouldn't even a part of this equation man....and thats coming from a 56 year old woman (straight, if you are curious) who has watched my gay friends fight for basic rights.

    Gay is as normal as straight....and really even as boring as. Who cares? Get your shit together and go for it.
