I've been wearing all black Since the day it started When I stopped and looked back As my mind departed I've been losing sleep And I cannot sit still I'm not the same woman That you were used to
I put my head underwater baby, I threw my clothes away in the trash I stood barefoot on the blazing concrete, I was waiting for the gut of the thunder I don't wanna bore you with how I feel, But when the walls came down, The shit got real I never thought I would ever be here,
Looking out on my life As if there was no there I messed around with something I always hated I took a blanket into the bath Opened my eyes and hallucinated, I took a nap and woke up in the grass
There's a little bit of magic, Everybody has it There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass
My own mortality, I contemplated Down in the valley I got hypnotized It left a mark that hasn't faded That's when I realized
There's a little bit of magic, Everybody has it There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass There's a little bit of magic, Everybody has it There's a little bit of fight left in the end I put my head underwater baby, I held my breath until it passed Crossed my fingers and concentrated I closed my eyes and I was free at last
