Watershed – Can't Be By Myself lyrics

Slam the door and grab the phone
Like a pistol against my head.
Ask your machine where are you
Damn it never knows.
Did I just leave a message or a suicide note?
Try to suck the words back down my throat
And I don't know how long I can hold out
Hold on, hold on

When I see ya girl I wanna change,
My clothes, my eyes, my hair, my face,
Gotta get away, so I can be myself
Myself

Now youre staring in the mirror
Trying to see what I see.
Till you don't even recongnize yourself
Darting empty bottles and broken glass
All tangled up in you, you
But everyone's got someone they can't have
I got you

When I see ya girl I wanna change
My clothes, my eyes, my hair, my face
I'll be anything, but I can't be myself, myself

I don't know how long I can hold out
I don't know how long I can hold out

Tonight this phone feels like a pistol,
Black and cold against my temple
Did I leave a message or a suicide note
(i don't know how long I can hold out)
Suck the words back down my throat
(i don't know how long I can hold out)
Gotta suck the words back down my throat

When I see ya girl I wanna change,
My clothes, my eyes, my hair, my face
And every word that gets away is going off like a cherry bomb

Like a shmuck outta luck
Full of sand in the clover
I'm bendin I'm breakin
I'm shaking all over
I'll be anything, but I can't be myself, myself, myself

Got me slipping and sliding and tossing and turning
And coming and creaming
And crashing and burning
I'll be anything, but I can't be myself, myself
Myself
