Empathy

Album: Havoc And Bright Lights (2012)
  • There are so many parts that I have hidden and that I yet lost
    There are so many ways that I have cut off my nose despite my face
    There are so many colors that I still try to hide while I paint
    And there are so many tunes that I secretly sing away

    But come along
    Yeah, invite these part-time writers
    Hello, this invitation
    Is one that I’ve stopped fighting oh oh

    Thank you for seeing me
    I feel so less lonely
    Thank you for guiding me
    I hear your bide, your empathy
    Ha-a this intimacy ha-a-a-a

    There were so many times I thought I have died, not the usually known
    There were so many moments, forever lonely in my location

    You come along
    To celebrate each feeling
    Come, there you are
    How long have I’ve been fighting?

    Thank you for seeing me
    I feel so less lonely
    Thank you for guiding me
    I hear your bide, you empathy
    Ha-a this intimacy ha, ah, ah, ah

    There were some days when the trusting was the last of me
    You’re quiet too much, you see too less
    Except you’re generous, see?
    To love myself enough
    To let you help me

    Thank you for seeing me
    I feel so less lonely
    Thank you for guiding me
    I hear your bide, you empathy
    Ha, a this intimacy ha, ah, ah, ah Writer/s: Alanis Nadine Morissette, Guy Sigsworth
