Nico – I Am lyrics

Ya, I've been thinking long enough
Long enough to be alive
How could you expect me
To feel what you do?

I feel like I'm fading
Farther away from you
How could you expect me
To remember all the good things that you've done

You are the potter - I'm the clay
You are the only way
I am your child today
I am your servant - teach me how to pray

How many things I've spoken
How many things I've done
But all the things that've come my way
Have brought me to be broken

Who said life is fair?
But why was I chosen
To be the thorn on all the roses
I don't deserve this kind of life

Life is crime - to fight is sin
Life is dust - you never win
