Seether – The Gift lyrics

Hold me now I need to feel relief
Like I never wanted anything
I suppose I'll let this go and find a reason I'll hold on to
I'm so ashamed of defeat
And I'm out of reason to believe in me
I'm out of trying to get by

I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
I don't belong here and I'm not well
I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
Right on the wrong side of it all

I can't face myself when I wake up
And look inside a mirror
I'm so ashamed of that thing
I suppose I'll let it go
Untill I have something more to say for me
I'm so afraid of defeat
And I'm out of reason to believe in me
I'm out of trying to defy

I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
I don't belong here and I'm not well
I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
Right on the wrong side of it all

Hold me now I need to feel complete
Like I matter to the one I need

I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
I don't belong here and I'm not well
I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
Right on the wrong side of it all

Now I'm ashamed of this
I am so ashamed of this
Now I'm so ashamed of this
I am so ashamed of me...

    I feel each person's meaning to song lyrics is one of their own. And this song most strongly symbolizes the last few weeks I stayed with my girlfriend before I broke up with her. The gift was her love. I was ashamed of the lie because I had started to drift away and no longer felt for her in that manner. And that 'i didn't belong here' by her deserving of the love she showed me. Showing 'i wasn't well'. Remember. An artist's work is to be interpreted differently by each person. This is merely what this song had meant to me at the given time. (the other song I felt a lot about during that time frame was under the bridge by red hot chili peppers).
