lyrics

AMBITION by Greetings and Goodbyes

verse 1
we never agreed from the very start, there was a misunderstanding
I thought you were cool and then you broke my heart, you’re just a bit too demanding

you only aim for the highest and ask for my best
take all my efforts, but won’t let me rest

so I want to come clean and tell you what I think, I’d like to make a suggestion
you need to slow down and learn to compromise, and take a minute to listen

chorus 1
oh ambition, you keep me wishing
for a life I may never find
you push me harder, you push me farther
up that ladder you make me climb
oh ambition, sometimes I wish that you weren’t mine

verse 2
I guess I could say when I think of you, I have a sense of suspicion
‘cause I’m not really sure if you’re helping me, so tell me what’s your intention?

you want to make lots of money and buy fancy things
set higher standards and goals to achieve

so I think that it’s time we should have a talk, to try to end this confusion
can we call it a truce and go our separate ways? a diplomatic solution?

chorus 2
oh ambition, you keep me wishing
for a life I may never find
you push me harder, you push me farther
up that ladder you make me climb
oh ambition, sometimes I wish that
oh ambition, sometimes I wish that
oh ambition, sometimes I wish that you weren’t mine
