(Helen Carter)
You tear me down a hundred times a day
I've cried enough to wash the world away
I've tried so hard to be what you've wanted me to be
Till somewhere along the way I lost me.
To give and keep on giving I have learned
There's no way but yours where you're concerned
I tried till finally I lost my own identity
And somewhere along the way I lost me.
Somewhere along the way I lost the man I used to be
A man who smiled, enjoyed life, loved you with all of me
You'd never once considered how I felt
So go ahead and live my life yourself.
I've tried so hard to be what you wanted me to be
Somewhere along the way I lost me.
Somewhere along the way I lost me...
