All That I'm Allowed (I'm Thankful) lyrics

(Elton John/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 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

Laving 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 deliver
Then there are the lucky ones.

And I 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

And I 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
