Things, Want, Promises

I was digitalizing "Turkey Lurkey Time", but ultimately this lyric has been really speaking to me.

Tell me how long must I keep
WANTING THINGS,
Needing things, when I have so much.
There are many men who have
much less than me,
Day by day they make their
way.
And they find more in life thank I can see.
Tell me,

When will I learn to resist WANTING THINGS,
Touching things that say
"do not touch."
People that I meet seem to
think I am strong,
They don't see inside of me.
So they don't know I'm weak and often wrong.

Tell me,
Why must I keep
WANTING THINGS,

Needing things that just can't be mine!
(yes, WANTING THINGS, that just can't... be... mine...)

Bryan - If you're name is actually Burt Bacharach or Hal David, then you did write it.
