lyrics

All sounds created by Janice’s voice
except for electric piano & bells



IT’S NOT YOU

Went down to the wreckage
To survey what was done
Crash landing, apparent
But I know it was me

I tried to convey what was wrong
Through my eyes
But my lips were frozen
From the start

It’s not you, it’s not you…
It’s me. It always was.

Oh, what have you done?
Grabbed the fruit of knowledge to
Take a bite, take a bite of life
I took the bait of lies instead.

I said them, I said them,
I lied them
Chewed on these words, mouthing
Lip-syncing to all other souls

I tried to fit in, oh I tried to sit still
But my legs stuck out so far
And tripped them all by accident
Well, mostly by accident.

It’s not you, it’s not you…
It’s me.
It always was.
It always was about me
Not believing
