Linkin Park - By Myself lyrics


ad
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
[2x]

I can't hold on to what I want when I'm stretched 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 defenceless 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 or your 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
[2x]

I can't hold on to what I want when I'm stretched 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!
Now matter what I do, how hard I try!
I can't seem to convince myself why!
I'm stuck on the outside
[2x]

I can't hold on to what I want when I'm stretched 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
[2x]
