lyrics

(J. Hudson) © 2015 Invincible City Records, LLC.

Don't know who I was before
I had my whole life to answer for
Some would say bourgeosie
A king, a leper or emcee
Just bought & sold
At bargain price
Like some rhetorical device
So you see
If I were me
I'd know who I'd be

(have I wasted my time? am I wasting it now with you?)
One thing I'm sure of
I'm sure of loving you
(do you not feel the same? tell me the truth)
Of that, I'm absolutely sure
I'm sure
I'm sure
(you are so completely unforgettable)
I'm sure
I'm sure that must be true
(you must be feeling it, too)

Of course
That was before
I had my whole life to answer for
Was I too tame
Or too extreme?
Things are never what they seem
Faith in love so sublime
A trademark valentine
So you see
If I were me
I'd know who I'd be

(I'm not a waste of time, it's not wasted here with me)
You're the one thing I'm unsure of
Unsure of loving you
(I'm sure I feel the same, that's the truth)
Of that, I'm absolutely sure
(anything else, I think, is unacceptable)
Unsure
(is regrettable)
Unsure
(I'm not that forgettable)
Unsure
Unsure of loving you
(I'm sure I feel it, too)

Honestly
I feel cloudy
Like I need rest
Don't know my own name
Couldn't even guess
Claustrophobic
Anaerobic
Nonetheless

Of course
That was before
I had my whole life to answer for
Was I too tame
Or too extreme?
Things are never what they seem
Faith in love so sublime
A trademark valentine
So you see
If I were me
I'd know who I'd be
Don't know who I was before
I had my whole life to answer for
Some would say bourgeosie
A king, a leper or emcee
Just bought & sold
At bargain price
Like some rhetorical device
So you see
If I were me
I'd know who I'd be
So you see
If I were me
I'd know who I'd be
