Now what can I do?

I’ve drifted my whole life through

Floating free, without a care in the world

But most times, I’m feeling blue

Now everybody’s moving on up

While I’m still here, stuck in a rut

So what should I do?

My heart is pure, and that’s true

 

 

I travel with an open mind

I’ve done things that have crossed the line

And I’m watched, by the men on my back

Who criticise, and judge me blind

The evils of drink cut through

And drag me down, into the mud

So what should I do?

My heart is pure, and that’s true

 

 

I live in the now, I crave for what could fire up my soul

I’ll never change, I’m out of control

I reach out my hands for no one

Until I find the grail that leads me on

To the place where I belong

 

 

Now I say I’m through

Living my life for you

Looking down, all I see are just pawns

Playing out what there told to do   

Now everybody’s moving on up

While I’m still here, stuck in a rut

So what should I do?

My heart is pure, and that’s true

DRIFTER

BY Richard Sutton

Oh, that's true

You know it's true

That I’m a drifter

And I could never live like you

 

 

I reach out my hands for no one

Until I find the grail that leads me on

To the place where I belong

 

 

Now everybody’s moving on up

While I’m still here, stuck in a rut

So what should I do?

My heart is pure, and that’s true

My heart is pure, and that’s true

My heart is pure, and that’s true

Ohhh its…….. true
