By Myself Lyrics - Linkin Park



Review The Song (4)


What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself

[Chorus:]
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll
Take from me ‘till everything is gone
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer
by myself [myself]

[x2]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself

[Chorus]

How do you think I've lost so much
I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
How do you expect... I will know what to do
When all I know Is what you tell me to

[x2]
Don't you know
I can't tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I can't seem to convince myself why
I'm stuck on the outside

[Chorus x2]

Hard Times | Reviewer: Cassie | 1/7/13

Oh man, I'm going through this currently and I can't stop listening to this song! Reasons being is that it's too relateble. I hope those who decide to hurt and use me listen to this. Fuck those who do this to me :)

GREAT Song! | Reviewer: MetalHead | 1/12/11

This song is a great example of why I love Linkin Park. I can perfectly relate to it, and so can others. No one's perfect, and Linkin Park proves that! Yet another LP song with strong meaning! They're the best!:)

About them. | Reviewer: Psixx | 1/4/08

Linkin Park had always great songs because of their pont, and it's different in every song, everything they felt - they "sing" out in their songs. Especially Chester xD!

Omg! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/18/07

I looove this song! It's so true! I used to be exactly like that in 6th grade, afraid to do anything so I let people control me... but now I don't anymore! And a few years ago when I was a freshman in high school, Linkin Park helped me through hard times. : D
