Giving It All Away (Remastered LP Version) - Lyrics

Writers: Leo Sayer & David Courtney

I paid all my dues so I picked up my shoes
I got up and walked away
oh, I was just a boy
nobody else to blame...

I've worked hard and failed
now all I can say is
I threw it all away
oh, I was just a boy
giving it all away...

sail away, sail away,
ooh, I know better now, I know better now
giving it all away

ooh, I know better now, I know better now
I've given it all away...

went out in the world -- too much for my nerves
only myself to blame
oh, I was just a boy
nobody else to blame...

I've done all I can, now it's out of my hands
stand on my head and say
oh, I was just a boy
giving it all away...

Writer(s): David Alexander Courtney, Leo Sayer
