"Letter To God" as written by and Linda Perry....
Dear God
I’m writing this letter to you
'Cause I don’t have a clue
Can you help me?

I’m sitting here
Simply trying to figure out
What my life’s all about
Can you tell me?

I never wanted to be
The person you see
Can you tell me who I am?
I always wanted to die
But you kept me here alive
Can you tell me who I am?

I lie awake
Conducting this symphony
That you have gifted to me
But I can’t ever sleep

Don’t be mad
But I get weak inside
And I start to fall apart
'Cause I feel nothing

I never wanted to be
Some kind of comic relief
Please show me who I am
I've been tortured and scorned
Since the day that I was born
But I don't know who I am

And I thank you man for everything
Sorry I'm so frightened about all of it
But I wish I could give you more
And all the lights are shining down on me
And I feel intimidated by it all

I never wanted to be
The person you see
But thank you

Oh, God please tell me now
Are you disappointed, are you proud?
Haven’t I done everything, everything

I’m so sorry I’m so weak
And I’ve turned into a freak
But I don’t know anything, anything

I’ve lost all self-esteem
By burying everything
And I feel nothing, nothing

Oh God please tell me now
Oh God please tell me now
'Cause I feel nothing

And dear God
I’m writing this letter to you
I am coming unglued
Please help me

    Lyric CorrectionOh dear god I’m writing this letter to you
    Cause I don’t have a clue
    Can you help me?


    I’m sitting here
    Simply trying to figure out
    What my life’s all about it
    Can you tell me?

    I never wanted to be
    The person you see
    Won’t you tell me who I am?

    I always wanted to die
    But you kept me alive
    Please tell me who I am


    I lie awake conducting this symphony,
    That you have gifted to me,
    but I don't ever sleep

    Don’t get mad
    Cause I get weak inside
    And I start to fall apart
    Cause I feel nothing


    I never wanted to be
    Some kind of comic relief
    Please show me who I am

    I been tortured and scorned
    Since the day thatI was born
    But I don’t know who I am

    And I thank you man for everything
    Sorry I’m so frightened about all of this
    Oh I wish I could give you more


    But all the lights are shining down on me
    And I feel violated by it all




    I never wanted to be
    The person you see but thank you
    Oh god please tell me now
    Are you disappointed or are you proud
    I’ve been also EVRYTHING, EVRYTHING!

    I’m so sorry I’m so weak
    And I turned into a freak
    But I don’t know ANYTHING, ANYTHING!

    I’ve lost all self-esteem
    A million, everything
    And I feel NOTHING, NOTHING!

    Oh god please tell me now
    God please tell me now
    Cause I feel nothing

    Oh dear god I’m writing this letter to you
    Cause I’m coming undone
    Please help me, me

    My InterpretationThis is difficult to say. If you check the Wikipedia article, it says that Courtney wrote maybe one line of it and the rest was a woman named Linda something.
