Alanis Morissette Excuses Lyrics

Last updated: 04/14/2013 10:18:09 AM

Why no one will help me
I am too dumb I am too smart
They'll not understand me
I am lonely
They'll hate me
And there is not enough time
It's too hard to help me
And god wants me to work
No resting no lazy

These excuses how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stuck
They've kept me locked in my own cell

I'm too far from home
It takes far too much energy
And I cannot afford to
No one will ever see me

These excuses how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stuck
They've kept me locked in my own cell

These excuses how they're so familiar
They've kept me blocked
They've kept me small
They've kept me safe inside my shell

Bringing this into the light
Shakes their foundation
And it clears my sight
Now my imagination
Is the only thing that limits
The bar and its rise to the heights

No one can have it all see
I have to they want me to
And I can't let them down
I'll never be happy

These excuses how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They’ve kept me stuck
They’ve kept me locked in my own cell

These excuses how they're so familiar
They've kept me blocked
They've kept me small
They've kept me safe inside my shell

I totally relate to this song! So many times have I just wanted to make an excuse, and it makes me feel safe, because I'm 'not to blame'. And although I'm getting better at admitting my excuses, I sometimes just want to retreat into the happy world of familiar excuses.
