I feel defeated again
I'm always losing to myself
I tried to build a better me
Shack to castle and it fell down

I had the right intentions
Sometimes, my hope envelopes me
And I can't learn the lesson
Not to send a goldfish to the sea

This matter is mine
Don't worry, I'm fine
This matter is mine
I'm not going to give it up

I know what you've been thinking
Too soon to empty my cocoon
This butterfly is not ready
Wouldn't she know better than you?

This matter is mine
Don't worry, I'm fine
This matter is mine
I'm not going to give it up
