Written by: antonina armato

Everybody has a story to tell
And I'd like to share mine with you
But my heart is kind of fragile
And I just can't imagine
It's something that I ought to do
And I realize
I'm still hurting deep inside
Where love used to live

So I keep myself
To myself
I don't want nobody to know me (I keep myself)
I keep myself
To myself
I don't want no lover to own me

My heart feels like it's all broken up
In tiny pieces that I'll never find
And I know that I will heal someday
I will feel again
But it might take a little more time
And can't you see
I'm so insulated
No one's touchin' me
At least for now (at least for now)

So I keep myself
To myself
I don't want nobody to know me (I keep myself)
I keep myself
To myself
I don't want no lover to own me

Then in the shadows of yesterday
Only peace of mind is when I pray
That someday I can find a way back home
Until I'm ready (until I'm ready)
To love again (until I'm ready)
Until I'm ready (until I'm ready)
Until then

(I keep myself)

Then in the shadow of yesterday
Only peace of mind is when I pray
That somehow I would find a way
I keep myself

Then in the shadow of yesterday
Only peace of mind is when I pray
That somehow I would find a way
I keep myself

I keep myself
To myself

I keep myself

I keep myself
To myself
