My Reason To Succeed

This song is by Abraham Cloud and appears on the album Another Successful Breakfast (1995).

Has anyone seen my reason to succeed?
Has anyone seen my reason to succeed?

Down in the ditches he's got hippies takin' pictures
Of the fingerprints you left on his dirt
Up in the tower he's got men who sit for hours
Analyzing lipstick stains on his shirts

I guess you must've thawed-out his heart
Like a teen-age holiday in the sun
Nobody could've set him on fire
But he sure looked burnt when you
When you were done

Stock market fallin', reporters callin'
The country can't survive another day
They need some re-assurance from that old financial genius
Investments and percentages are safe

I guess you showed him one side of life
He had never really witnessed before
That feeling of completely releasing
Young, strong and poor
Who could want any more?

Have you seen my reason to succeed?
Have you seen my reason to succeed?

Has anyone seen my reason to succeed?

It's a sad, sad story in the truest of traditions
It has to happen every day
Someone gets excited, someone turns a light on
The light unscrews itself and walks away

Have you seen my reason to succeed?

Bigger than a parking meter
Quicker than a cab
Has anyone seen my reason to succeed?
