Only Desire What You Have
Kate Rusby Lyrics


I was not born a queen or king
I have no house nor anything
In comfort, none can equal me
And what they all would die to be

Walk in the sun, stay in the light
And when we're done, we'll take flight
Only desire what you have
Only desire what you have
My altar is the breath of life
For wisdom, grace and love I strive
While evil games the greedy play
It's only nature I obey

Walk in the sun, stay in the light
And when we're done, we'll take flight
Only desire what you have
Only desire what you have

I'll have no check upon my glass
But the hours of joy and laughter pass
Let night into the morning fold
And a whole new day of life take hold

Walk in the sun, stay in the light
And when we're done, we'll take flight
Only desire what you have
Only desire what you have

I'll journey on, I'll sing and dance
And the greedy ones can make their stance
With pockets for souls they'll never fill
With happy heart, I'm smiling still

Walk in the sun, stay in the light
And when we're done, we'll take flight
Only desire what you have
Only desire what you have

Kate Rusby could sing the yellow pages to the tune of peppa pig and it would be a wondrous thing indeed; her voice oh her voice

hi Kate, this song is beautiful as always. I have been following your music for 8 years now and have never been disappointed. you are always my go to music and I share it with as many people as I can. I have made it a goal of mine to see you in concert at least once and can't wait until that happens. cheers from Oregon, USA!

North Yorshire is also a must see very beautiful in parts.

Collin Platt

Pat Garten I will definitely have to do that. maybe I'll see you there!

Pat Garten

Collin, I feel much the same. I am in NY, and I went, with my two daughters, to the 2015 Underneath the Stars Festival. My suggestion, go to the 2017 UtSF Festival, and hope to catch another concert of hers while you are over there as well - can't get enough of Kate Rusby you know. Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and the surrounding areas are wonderful to visit.

Words of wisdom from the golden-voiced Barnsley Nightingale! Besides your talent and equally talented band, we love your warmth and humour, and have seen you quite a few times, mostly in Buxton.
