  • Though I can't get out
    Trapped inside of it
    I won't let go
    Pain keeps driving it

    I only hope and pray
    That I can make it pay
    Keep pushing, it
    I keep pushing on

    I did the best I could
    I learned to sacrifice
    I tried to make it work
    This time away has done me good
    It's a change, from you

    Keep switching me
    Off and on and off and on and on
    (I put myself back together)
    You've been gone too long, the only love is gone
    You thought I'd be free forever
    Keep switching me
    Off and on and off and on and on
    (I put myself back together)
    You've been gone too long, the only love is gone
    You thought I'd be free forever

    No I can't turn back,
    I'm sick and tired of it
    When love broke down
    I rewired it

    I'm only human babe
    You let the feeling fade
    Keep pushing
    Till I reach a higher ground

    I tried to make it back
    When every door was closed
    Your love was all I had
    I tried to make an honest man
    Woo ooh
    Out of you

    Wired to the sun with a laser beam
    Power surge, come feel the energy
    And I'm ready to shine and shine and shine and shine:..

    Keep switching me
    Off and on and off and on and on
    (I put myself back together)
    You've been gone too long, the only love is gone
    (You thought I'd be free forever)
    Keep switching me
    Off and on and off and on and on
    (I put myself back together)
    You've been gone too long, the only love is gone
    (You thought I'd be free forever)

    I put myself, I, I put myself, I put myself back together

    You thought I'd be, you, you, you thought I'd be free forever

    I put myself, put, put, myself back together

    You thought I'd be, you, you, you thought I'd be free forever Writer/s: CATHY DENNIS, ADAM WILES
