NIK KERSHAW lyrics - What It Is

NIK KERSHAW
"What It Is"

What if it hasn't gone the way you planned
Life isn't as grand, as everyone else's
There go the neighbours in their four by four
It's bigger than yours, it's bigger than Elvis

God knows, that's the way that it goes

What it is, what it is not the way than you wanted
Not a song or a sonnet
Not a hope or a wish
You are, you are not what you wanted to be
Not a dream or a movie
What it is, what it is, what it is

Everybody's in the back of a limousine and
You're the chauffeur
Doing less work and having more fun
Them on big brother, they don't have a clue
It should've been you, it should've been someone
So what, they would kill for
What you've got

What it is, what it is not the way than you wanted
Not a song or a sonnet
Not a hope or a wish
You are, you are not what you wanted to be
Not a dream or a movie
What it is, what it is, what it is

You should've been someone
Big deal, that's a lie, this is real

What it is, what it is not the way than you wanted
Not a song or a sonnet
Not a hope or a wish
You are, you are not what you wanted to be
Not a dream or a movie
What it is, what it is, what it is
And you don't know what you want
And you do know you ain't got it
