Stuck With Being Me

lyrics

I wish I could see the things that I cant
look boldly into the face of my weaknesses
but there's some chains you cant see till they break
how can you be something you aint

well it's hard sometimes to live you must die
and to die first you must live
well I'm figuring it out and forgiving myself
I'm stuck with being me

I try not to cause nobody not pain
sometimes that's all you can do anyway
the darkness gets thick and I can't find my way
tears rolling down my baby's face

say what you feel and do what you do
if you can't hear what I'm saying I aint talking to you
one life to live and one life to die
one life to fail and one life to try

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
