Letter To God
by Hole

Album: Nobody's Daughter (2010)
  • 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 Writer/s: LINDA PERRY
