My Song

Lyricist: Brandi Carlile    Composer: Brandi Carlile

Everything I do surrounds these pieces of my life that often change
Or maybe I've changed

Sometimes seeming happy can be self-destructive even when you're sane
Only insane but don't bother waking me today

Here I am, I'm so young
I know I've been bitter, I've been jaded, I'm alone
Everyday, I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full of razors
To cut you like a word if only sung
But this is my song
This is my song

I live everyday like they'll never be a last one till they're gone
And they're gone
I'm not too proud to beg for your attention and your friendship and your time
So you could come and get it from now on

Here I am, I'm so young
I know I've been bitter, I've been jaded, I'm alone
Everyday, I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full of razors
To cut you like a word if only sung
This is my song
This is my song

And it's you, it is you

Here I am, I'm so young
I know I've been bitter, I've been jaded, I'm alone
Everyday, I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full of razors
I'm not sure I can take it
I've nothing strong to hold to
I'm way too old to hate you
My mind is full of razors
Cut you like a word if only sung
But this is my song
