Everything But Me

March 20th, 2022

You’ve tried to keep me trapped
In an image that I’m not
Picture perfect in a frame
But I think that you forgot

I keep myself busy
Just to keep myself numb
And now I’m not sure
Who it is I have become

[Chorus]
So if I haven’t been myself
Don’t know who it is I’ve been
When you said to go to hell
Where do you think it is I went

And who I was before
Doesn’t matter anymore
There’s more in life to see
I can’t continue to ignore

You drag me down with you
Because you’d love to see me fail
But I can get back up again
And in the end I will prevail

[Chorus]
So if I haven’t been myself
Don’t know who it is I’ve been
When you said to go to hell
I’ve been there time and time again

And you can’t keep me here
I think it’s time for me to leave
Take everything but me
From a life that I won’t grieve

[Chorus]
So if I haven’t been myself
Don’t know who it is I’ve been
When you said to go to hell
Where do you think it is I went

Pedestal

June 27th, 2008

You’ got me standing on a pedestal
My legs are tired
But you’re not letting me down
I want to veer
But I don’t want to fall off
I need help down
I’m not perfect
And I won’t ever be
I’m so imperfect
Don’t know why you can’t see
You’ve got me up on a pedestal
I don’t know why
It seems the harder that I try
You only see
Perfection shining out of me
But I’m not
I’ll never be
Why can’t you see
You’ve got me up on a pedestal
My legs are tired
But you’re not letting me down
Don’t let me fall
