Paula Cole Me Lyrics

Last updated: 06/20/2010 11:00:00 AM

I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside
I am not the one who laughs at people's jokes
I just pacify their egos
I am not my house, my car, my songs
They are only just stops along my way
I am like the winter
I'm a dark cold female
With a golden ring of wisdom in my cave


And it is me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying my heart
I am carrying my rhythm
I am carrying my prayers
But you can't kill my spirit
It's soaring and it's strong
Like a mountain
I'll go on and on
But when my wings are folded
The brightly colored moth
Blends into the dirt into the ground


And it's me who's too weak
And it's me who's too shy
To ask for the thing I love
And it's me who's too weak
And it's me who's too shy
To ask for the thing I love
That I love (6 times)

I am walking on the bridge
I am over the water
And I'm scared as hell
But I know there's something better
Yes I know there's something
Yes I know, I know, yes I know

That I love (5 times overlapping chorus)

But it's me
And it's me
But it's me (4 times)

Yes I agree!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/16/10

You do hear some good stuff on the radio now & then but usually the same stuff over & over. Paula Cole has so many great tunes along with so many artists that don't get heard and are so great. I have opened for many like John Waite, The Motels & Terri Nunn of Berlin to name a few and do they get air play, F no and they all tour to date and have great songs worthy of airplay. Paula, I have to say especially!!!! She totally is an inspiration to me & like one of her influence Kate Bush & Peter, I love the tones and have become the vocalist I am largely due to them. Along with other influences as well of course the list is too long.

Great song! | Reviewer: Sarah | 9/27/07

I love this song. Paula wrote it from her heart. Like anonymous said, it is his or her anthem... I think this should be an anthem for young girls and women of all ages!!!

Great Job Paula... Keep on writing great songs!

Great song! | Reviewer: Ben | 7/19/07

I absolutly love this song. Both it's message and it's rythem are beautiful. Paula Cole is a very talented musican. She's also a very preety woman I might add. I hope she continues to put out more music and likewise gets the recognition she so deserves.

this song speaks to everyone...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
