  • I'm not the kind of person you think I am
    I'm not the anti-christ or the iron man
    I have a vision that I just can't control
    I feel I've lost my spirit and sold my soul

    Got no control

    I try to entertain you the best I can
    I wish I'd started walking before I ran
    But I still love the feeling I get from you,
    I hope you'll never stop 'cause' it gets me through yeah
    It gets me through yeah

    The feelings that I hide behind
    Sometimes reality's unkind
    The nightmares stalk for me at night
    I dread the long and lonely nights

    I'm not the kind of person you think I am
    I'm not the anti-christ or the iron man
    But I still love the feeling I get from you
    I hope you'll never stop 'cause' it gets me through yeah

    I'm just trying to live yeah
    I'm just trying to live yeah
    I'm just trying to live yeah
    I'm just trying to live yeahWriter/s: JOHN OSBOURNE, TIMOTHY JEROME PARKER

  • Robert from Atlanta, GaThe best part of the video is where there is a room full of doves, then a headless, blood-covered one hits the wall and blood spills out. ThAT WAS AWESOME! the part I didin't like was the room with broken glass an Ozzy looking dead and then he grins, what is that about?
  • Jeri from Edmonton, CanadaThis song is awesome on the Live at Budokan dvd... but everything by Ozzy is beastly good anyways! We love you Ozzy
  • Billy from Otway, OhWhen i'm feeling down,Ozzy gets me through.
  • Ravyn from Hell, NyGreat song showing appreciation to us, when its really HIM that keeps US together. Atleast me in my troubled times.
  • James from Sarasota, FlI just heard this song for the first time but they talk like it's been out since 2001; good song anyways.
