lyrics

I, I’m alive
This skin through which I feel
is how I survive
Thoughts, these are the strangest things
I think it so its true at least that
what my head sings

But I can’t change any part of you...

I’m what my mother said, I’m a lesson learned
I’m what my daddy did, I’ve been overturned
I’m so afraid of the truth I’ve yet to tell
I’m what you’re thinking, you may think I must be doing well

You had to see
I was too small to walk that road
Couldn’t you come with me?
Oh, it was to hard for you
So you closed me out,
and that i learned to do.

But I will change this part of me

I’m what my mother said, I’m a lesson learned
I’m what my daddy did, I’ve been overturned
I’m so afraid of the truth i’ve yet to tell
I’m what you’re thinking, you may think I must be doing well

And through darkness, I see the lies you told
I feel it every day, its all i have to hold
its getting late, and i’m afraid you’ll never see
the great conclusion that i shouldn’t be ashamed of me
