Restless

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.


Gonna raise the roof, gonna bring down the house,
Pull the proof out of the pudding and take a few bows,
I'm in a new town, playin' a new scene,
Top of my game, and I'm feelin' mighty keen

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.


Go hiking in the mountains, camp out under the stars,
Start shopping for a violin or else a new guitar,
Get started on that book I've always wanted to write
Run ten miles in the morning, do yoga every night,

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.


There's a big stack of novels I've been meaning to read
Gotta get to 'em, 'cause I'm feeling the need,
Call up some politicians, maybe start a couple fights
There's about a million wrongs I'd like to right.

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.


Jump out of a plane with just a parachute,
Pull up those dandelions in the yard by their roots,
Do a bunch of research, start a family tree,
Enroll in a course at the university.

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.


Call up those old friends who've lost touch,
And tell 'em all I miss 'em just a little too much.
Travel to Peru or maybe Mazatlan,
Or hey - I could start a Mariachi band.

I'm restless, I can't sit still
Gonna feed my addiction, gotta have my fill
I want it all right now, I think I can and I will
I can't slow down 'cause I'm restless.
I'm restless, I'm restless...
