I Own The Best Of All Things
 
we could feast on crumbs at their feet. i'll have that
make our bed from one stray silk thread. i'll take that
we could thrive on one thick deep dime. i'll buy that
you touch me once and i'm coming for months. i'll have that.
all the fortune,
all the pleading,
all the tension,
all that you see goes, oh, oh

i own it all. i own the best of all things
i own the blue. i own the best of all blue things, things

we'll build a palace from all their trash. i'll have that
we'll use time like a buffalo's hide. i'll take that
we'll give birth away. we've too much. i'll have that
your one word's like 12 years of church. i'll buy that

all the passion,
all the beauty,
all the freedom,
all you can't see goes, oh, oh

we own it all. we own the best of all things
we own the smooth. we own the best of smooth things, things

instrumental

i own the round. i own the best of round things
i own the sweet. i own the best of sweet things
i own the ground. i own the best of ground things
i own it all. i own the best of all things, things, things, things
