Greedy

you can call me greedy ’cos I keep a piece of me
you can call me greedy – there’s a place you’ll never see
where the lights are all out and the door stays slammed

if that’s being greedy – that’s what I am

you hate me changing it’s the change you can’t control
you hate me changing and the wandering of my soul
searching the storm for some frozen calm

if that’s being greedy – that’s what I am

– guitar solo

you can call me greedy ’cos I keep a piece of me
you can call me greedy – there’s a place you’ll never see
where the lights are all out and the door stays slammed

if that’s being greedy – that’s what I am

– guitar solo
