Music At Work - All I Want (Song Lyrics)

Music At Work offers an exclusive, ongoing sneak-peek into new songs on the horizon. All song titles and lyrics are subject to change, evolve, or disappear entirely over time, but I want to share some of the beginning stages of the creative process with you in real-time. 

Here are lyrics from a new song in development with the working title “All I Want.” I built the foundation around a drum loop and a warm synth pad in Ableton Live, and I hear it being produced almost akin to a Depeche Mode or Cocteau Twins 80’s-esque power ballad. 
 

All I Want 
by Gregory Douglass 

Treason, calling every angel 
Rousing up a storm in my heaven 
Vertigo from the window 
Careful not to let go of my faith 
And now it makes me wonder 

Could I have been all I wanted? 
Or could I be all I want? 
Could I have been all I wanted? 
Or could I be all I want? 

All I want, all that purity that remains 
All I want, all the rhythm inside my veins 
All I want, all the purity that remains 
All I want, all the rhythm inside, the rhythm inside 

Oh, the life I’ve made 
Who am I with what remains? 
Silently we walk the plank in vain 
Well I won’t take it anymore 
There’s something better in store 
There must be 
But still it makes me wonder 

Could I have been all I wanted? 
Or could I be all I want? 
Could I have been all I wanted? 
Or could I be all I want? 

All I want, all that purity that remains 
All I want, all the rhythm inside my veins 
All I want, all the purity that remains 
All I want, all the rhythm inside, the rhythm inside
