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

That Much

December 30th, 2009

I get a little bit crazy
But nothing out of control
My minds a little bit spacy
When I’m out on my own
And I’m a little bit stupid
And I’m falling behind
And I’m a little bit complicated
Why can’t I just push rewind

[Pre Chorus:]
And the piles adding up
But I just can’t take that much

[Chorus:]
And I don’t know just who I am
Please figure me out
And I don’t know what to do
I’m just always in doubt
And I need some help
Please help me through
And I’ve lost everything
But am I losing you

And I’m a little lost
Never been over here
And I’m a little dizzy
Trying to get over this fear
And I lost my help
Because they let me go
And the more I ask
The more I hear no

[Pre Chorus:]
And the piles adding up
But I just can’t take that much

[Chorus:]
And I don’t know just who I am
Please figure me out
And I don’t know what to do
I’m just always in doubt
And I need some help
Please help me through
And I’ve lost everything
But am I losing you

And I find my way out
But realize I’m wrong
And I’m always confused
Have I been all along
And I thought I knew
Exactly who I was before
But moving on
I didn’t anymore

[Chorus:]
And I don’t know just who I am
Please figure me out
And I don’t know what to do
I’m just always in doubt
And I need some help
Please help me through
And I’ve lost everything
But am I losing you

[Pre Chorus:]
And the piles adding up
But I just can’t take that much

Collide

December 19th, 2009

A feeling that’s so right
Turning daylight into night
The words fade out of songs
They said they’ve known this all along
It shattered my inside
But it seems we did collide
I tried so hard for your attention
You seemed to have me in suspension
A shock within a thought
A feeling without being caught
A smile without a trace
A girl without a face
A place for fingertips
Once following your lips
Fallen on the bed
My body dropping dead
The clock blinks time away
Until it seems we’ve lost the day
