All That I'm Allowed (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin 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 stalled I only hope I'm standing here When heaven finally comes to call
