I’ve done the time
I've shed some tears
I did the walk of shame right into all my fears
I’ve shared my voice
I’ve spilled the truth
I shared my whole entire life with all of you
But most of all, all of these things
Have overpowered me

I bit the dirt
I ate the leaves
and there was nothing I could do except appease
The so-called things you sent to me
As a memento of a non-existant plea
Oh the things I’ve done for you
They’ve overpowered me

I danced with the night
Bayed at the moonlight
Sure I’d get it right
For you and me

We fell in love
We felt the breeze
Sailed a totalitarian and windy sea
In acid rain
In summer heat
We seemed to conquer this and that and everything
But there was something so indeed
You’d overpowered me

I took a risk
Then shrugged it off
So this is how my mark has made off in this gulf
What’s next for me
I hear you ask
That answer’s not in my wheelhouse or bank of task
I wonder how I’ll accept that
It’s overpowered me

I sing to the night
Scream into headlights
Sure I’ll win the fight
For you

I slide out of your sight
It’s time I do it right
Rip off the bandage it was tight
For me
Just me
