Track Name: Can't Be Myself
My life hangs by a thread
It would take nothing to end
You walk by and I can't go
I'm left here all alone.

I feel like I can't be myself
Around you
I have to pretend
that I don't care
I'm on a level
I can't remain for long
Everything about me seems wrong.

Once again you gave me control
But I can't assume the role
But this time must be different than last
I'm not living in my past.

I feel like I can't be myself
Around you
I have to pretend
that I don't care
I'm on a level
I can't remain for long
Everything about me seems wrong.

My life hangs by a thread
It would take nothing to end
The connection between us has disappeared
And I can't replace it with anything real.

I feel like I can't be myself
Around you
I have to pretend
that I don't care
I'm on a level
I can't remain for long
Everything about me seems wrong.

I feel like I can't be myself
Around you
I have to pretend
that I don't care
I'm on a level
I can't remain for long
Everything about me seems wrong.
Everything about me
Is wrong.
Track Name: I Do it For You
Sitting around is just not my style.
Neither is getting lost in the crowd.
But I can be a social butterfly
Or the strong and silent type
Uh huh, Uh huh.

No reason why we've got
to change each other.
I'll be myself and you
can do the same.
But anytime you need your counterpart
I won't misbehave
Uh huh-Uh huh.

Don't believe that any other
Could do all
That I do

I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo

It's not like I can't see things
Your way
I happen to be very opinionated.
But my love for you will let you
get away with just about
Anything-Uh huh-uh

And don't believe that any other
Could do all
That I do

I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo

And don't believe that any other
Could do all
That I do

I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
I do it for you-ooo-oo
Track Name: To the Bone
Be with me in this moment
So slow.
I don't have the whereabouts
To know.

That now is the time
that I have got to let go.
Now is the time
to see my garden grow.
Yes, I've got to be alone.

I don't have the energy
To pretend.
Or fight myself until
the bitter end.

Because now is the time
that I have got to let go.
Now is the time
to see my garden grow.
Yes I've got to be alone.
To get right down to the bone.
Yes I've got to be alone.
To get right down to the bone.

But in between, please,
be here in this time
So infinite.
To walk along beside me
Onto paths I've never been.

My wandering mind
Will seek what it can't find.
My obsession with time
Will make me grow old.
And now is the time
that I have got to let go.
Yes I've got to be alone.
To get right down to the bone.
Yes I've got to be alone.
To get right down to the bone.
To get right down to the bone.
To get right down to the bone.
To get right down to the bone.
