Ask For More Lyrics – Shakira

I’d rather dance in the air
than lie on the ground.
I’d rather my open my ears
than shut out the sound.
Travel to the ends of the Earth
and tell you what I found.

I rather kneel down and pray
than scream at the sun.
Prefer to know than
to hide from my skeletons.
I don’t want to sit down and cry
while watching others run.

If I missed the bus more than once,
I’m not the only one.
Don’t wanna wait around
for things to come to me.
‘Cause when my hands are tied,
they struggle to be free.
And if they steal my eyes,
I’ll find a new way to see.

The world’s forever turning,
and there’s a thought that never stops burning.
If I’m pounding at your door,
it’s because I’m here to ask for more.
The world’s forever turning,
and there’s a thought that never stops burning.
If I’m pounding at your door,
it’s because I’m here to ask for more.

Prefer a thousand hello’s
to just one goodbye.
Prefer the pain of the truth
to a pretty lie.

Listen to the words in my head,
although they may not rhyme.
Listen to the voice in my heart,
somedays it’s so sublime.
Don’t wanna wait around
for things to come to me.
‘Cause when my hands are tied,
they struggle to be free.
And if they steal my eyes,
I’ll find a new way to see.

The world’s forever turning,
and there’s a thought that never stops burning.
If I’m pounding at your door,
it’s because I’m here to ask for more.
The world’s forever turning,
and there’s a thought that always burning.
If I’m pounding at your door,
it’s because I’m here to ask for more.

Composer: Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll
