Song Description

There's a lot of things that could help you get what you want but all you really need is an excuse to succeed.

Lyrics

There are some things I surely could use here
I'll rattle off a few just for you
I could use some cash, an advance to get started
Some new threads and a motto or two
A full tank of gas and a map to somewhere
Maybe a threat or something to prove

But all I need is an excuse

I could sell all my things and move out to the country
make promises and swear by my heart
I could use a match to start a fire
an idea that could set me apart
Oh, but there's such an easier way
Nothing should be that hard

Cause all I need's an excuse

All I need's an excuse
something to lose
All I need's an excuse
Nothing to prove

I could learn to speak a whole new language
and try to start all over again
And maybe I'll stop, stop holding my breath
and slay them with a stroke from the pen
Oh, but there's such an easier way
Nothing should be so hard
