WHEN AM I GOING TO MAKE A LIVING Lyrics - Sade

Review The Song (1)



Words: Sade Adu
Music: Sade Adu and Stuart Matthewman


When am I gonna make a living?
It's gonna take a while before I give in.
See the people fussing and theiving.
While the sharks are wheeling and dealing.

Gotta look up and tell yourself,
there's no end to what you can do.
They'll waste your body and soul if you allow them to.
This is time to start believing in yourself.
Put the blame on no-one else.

When am I gonna make a living?
It's gonna take a while before I give in.
See the people fussing and stealing.
Too many lies, no-one is achiveing.

Haven't I told you before,
"we're hungry for a life we can't afford."
There's no end to what you can do.
If you give yourself a chance to prove.

We're hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
We're hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.

There's no end to what you can do.
They'll waste your body and soul if you allow them to.
Start believing in yourself.
Put the blame on no-one else.

When am I gonna make a living?.
It's gonna take a while before I give in. Yes it is.
I'm sick and tired of scratching a living.
I am hungry but I'm not gonna give in.

We're hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we won't give in.
Hungry but we're gonna win.

Anthem for the unemployed! :D | Reviewer: Mel davis | 8/2/2007

I love this song! In 1980's I was just 21 and unemployed for a year! I was homeless living with a friend who didn't really want me in her house and being chased around by her dad!

I was deseperate so I got a job which started at 4am left my friends house and got a bedsit. With some of my wage I got Sades album Diamond Life and this song was on the album. This song got me through some really tough times.

I am older wiser (43) with two boys of my own now but boy this song bring back so many memories! Thanks Sade! Still love youxxx
