Everything I do
Surrounds these pieces of my life
That always change
Or hey, maybe I've changed

Sometimes being happy
Can be self-destructive
Even when you're sane
Yeah you're only insane

But don't bother waking me today

Here I am
I'm so young
Hey I am bitter
I've been jaded
'Cause everyday
I bite my tongue
If you only knew
My mind was full of razors
To cut you like a
Worry from this song

This is my song
This is my song

I live everyday
Like they'll never be a last one
Till they're gone
And they're gone
I'm stick to make me your
Your attention and your friendship
And your time
So you could come and get it from now on

[Chorus:]

This is my song
This is my song

[Chorus:]

    everything I do surrounds these pieces
    of my life that often change
    or maybe I've changed
    sometimes seeming happy
    can be self-destructive
    even when you're sane
    you're only insane

    but don't bother waking me today

    here I am, I'm so young
    I know I've been bitter, I've been
    jaded, I'm alone
    every day I bite my tongue
    if you only knew my mind
    was full of razors
    to cut you like a word if only sung
    but this is My Song, it is My Song

    I live every day like there'll never be a
    last one till they're gone
    and they're gone
    but I'm too proud to beg for your
    attention and your friendship
    and your time
    so you can come and get it from now on

    here I am, I'm so young
    I know I've been bitter, I've been
    jaded, I'm alone
    every day I bite my tongue
    if you only knew my mind
    was full of razors
    to cut you like a word if only sung
    but this is My Song, it is My Song

    here I am, I'm so young
    I know I've been bitter, I've been
    jaded, I'm alone
    every day I bite my tongue
    if you only knew my mind
    was full of razors
    I'm not sure I can take it
    I have nothing strong to hold to
    I'm way too old to hate you
    my mind is full of razors
    to cut you like a word if only sung
    but this is My Song

    General Comment:I think this song means that she doesn't want to show her hatred for this person and she's kind of fake-liking them.

    My favorite lines: "I'm not sure I can take it/I've nothing strong to hold to/ I'm way too old to hate you" I love how she sings it and her voice kind of screams. It's so... I don't know. Perfect. Great. Amazing. I stop whatever I'm doing and just pause for a second to hear her sing those lines.

    I love these lines. So honest. And I agree with celatee, I love the way she sings the 'I'm not sure I can take it', etc. lines. Man, that woman has got a voice on her. She's pretty much mind-blowing, yep. :]
