By Myself

作詞:    作曲:

what do i do to ignore them behind me
do i follow my instincts blindly
do i hide my pride from these bad dreams
and give in to sad thoughts that are maddening
do i sit here and try to stand it
or do i try to catch them red-handed
do i trust some and get fooled by phoniness
or do i trust nobody and live in loneliness

because i can't hold on when i'm stretched so thin
i make the right moves but i'm lost within
i put on my daily facade but then
i just end up getting hurt again

by myself (myself)
i ask why (but in my mind i find)
i can't rely on myself (myself)
i ask why (but in my mind i find)
i can't rely on myself (myself)

i can't hold on
(to what i want when i'm streched so thin)
it's all too much to take in
i can't hold on
(to anything, watching everything spin)
with thoughts of failure sinking in

if i turn my back i'm defenseless
and to go blindly seems senseless
if i hide my pride and let it all go on
then they'll take from me til everything is gone
if i let them go i'll be outdone
but if i try to catch them, i'll be outrun
if i'm killed by the questions like a cancer
then i'll be buried in the silence of the answer

by myself (myself)
i ask why (but in my mind i find)
i can't rely on myself (myself)
i ask why (but in my mind i find)
i can't rely on myself

i can't hold on
(to what i want when i'm streched so thin)
it's all too much to take in
i can't hold on
(to anything, watching everything spin)
with thoughts of failure sinking in

how do you think i've lost so much
i'm so afraid, i'm out of touch
how do you expect i will know what to do
when all i know is what you tell me to

don't you know
i can't tell you how to make it go
no matter what i do, how hard i try
i can't seem to convince myself why
i'm stuck on the outside

don't you know
i can't tell you how to make it go
no matter what i do, how hard i try
i can't seem to convince myself why
i'm stuck on the outside

i can't hold on
(to what i want when i'm streched so thin)
it's all too much to take in
i can't hold on
(to anything, watching everything spin)
with thoughts of failure sinking in

i can't hold on
