Buy Myself

Lyrics

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 façade 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

I can’t look around
It’s too much to take in
I can’t hold on
When I’m stretched so thin
I can’t slow down
Watching everything spin
I can’t look past
It’s starting over again

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 ?till 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

I can’t look around
It’s too much to take in
I can’t hold on
When I’m stretched so thin
I can’t slow down
Watching everything spin
I can’t look past
It’s starting over again

Don’t you…
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
