By Myself
Linkin Park
What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride/from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I/sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I/try to catch then red-handed?
Or do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can?t hold on/when I?m stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I?m lost within
I put on my daily fa?ade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself ]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can?t rely on myself

I can?t hold on
[To what I want when I?m stretched so thin]
It?s all to much to take in
I can?t hold on
[To anything watching everything spin]
With any thoughts of failure sinking in

If I/turn my back I?m defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on/then they?ll
Take from me till everything is gone
If I let them go I?ll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I?ll be outrun

If I?m killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I?ll be buried in the silence of the answer
[By myself]

How do you think/I?ve lost so much
I?m so afraid/I?m out of tough
How do you expect/I will know what to do
When all I know/is what you tell me to

Don?t you know
I can?t tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I can?t seem to convince myself why
I?m stuck out on the outside
