JOHN MAYER – Not Myself

4 Mei

Suppose I said
I am on my best behavior
And there are times
I lose my worried mind

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

Suppose I said
Colors change for no good reason
And words will go
From poetry to prose

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

And I, in time, will come around
I always do for you

Suppose I said..
You’re my saving grace

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I’m someone else?

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I’m someone else?

PS: Tiba-tiba ingat Spider-Man 2. Setelah kehilangan kekuatannya, Peter berkata pada MJ, “I’m different. Punch me, I bleed.” And I know how it felt now. I lost it. I’ve taken a punch where it hurts the most, where it bleeds the most. It has made me weak. And indeed it has made me different.

I wish I could deal with this like you do. I wish I could be the person I used to be. But that’s too much to ask right now. You’d just have to deal with it, kiddo, before it starts consuming you.

Now..

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I’m someone else?

Just, Don’t..

Don’t cry other people’s tears. Don’t speak other people’s mind. Don’t carry other people’s burden. Don’t burn on other people’s wrath.

You deserve better than this, kid. I think you do.
