I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside
I am not the one who laughs at people's jokes
I just pacify their egos

I am not my house or my car or my songs
They are only just stops along my way
I am like winter
I'm a dark cold female
With a golden ring of wisdom in my cave

And it is me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying my heart
I am carrying my rhythm
I am carrying my prayers

But you can't kill my spirit
It's soaring and it's strong
Like a mountain
I go on and on

But when my wings are folded
The brightly colored moth
Blends into the dirt into the ground


And it's me who's too weak
And it's me who's too shy
To ask for the thing I love
And it's me who's too weak

And it's me who's too shy
To ask for the thing I love
That I love (6 times)
I am walking on the bridge

I am over the water
And I'm scared as hell
But I know there's something better
Yes I know there's something

Yes I know, I know, yes I know
That I love (5 times overlapping chorus)
But it's me
And it's me
But it's me (4 times)
