You
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I see what I've become
and I've become what I hated
I feel so used and I feel so dated

Like everything I've tried
just to keep myself alive
was all worth nothing
I thought I was worth something

but now I'm just scared
and I think that I'm losing it
like I'm living in this body but
I can't see myself choosing it

I want to be alive
and I want to be free
but what is all of this worth
if I can't stand to be around me

and you
you always cut me down
and I can try to please you
but you are never satisfied
and I don't deserve this from you

I've tried everything
and I've asked everyone
but I'm still stuck in myself
and I can't get out

every shot to the soul
every night I fall further
in this self tangled desperation
i want to live without an explanation

but I sit as I wage
this silent war upon myself
try to fix it by being outward
but I end up walking backward

as I jolt myself around
I throw myself to the ground
please just make this go away
I don't want to hear this anymore

and you
you always cut me down
and I can try to please you
but you are never satisfied
and I don't deserve this from you

and I know I could run
back to the start
but I don't think that I could live through that again

so I sit here and listen
to what I could be if I tried
but I feel like I fail at every turn

and you
you always cut me down
and I can try to please you
but you are never satisfied
and I don't deserve this from you
