Soothe Yourself
(Cunniff/Trimble)

I’ve been soother
And I’ve been wife
Tried to solve your life
Stuck with you through your rainy days
Thought that it was just a phase
When the sun came out I tried
To get away and fly
But the needs we had did not subside
What a way for our love to die

I’ve been hiding behind my gifts
I give until it starts to rip
The skin is torn where I begin
The thread is worn and might give in
Underneath it all I feel the eyes
Of all the things that I despise
Can I fight them off with sticks and stones?
Can I fight them off alone?

Soothe yourself

Now I’m thinking about my own advice
If I could soothe myself it might be nice
Callin’ names ain’t the same no more
Took a look and locked that door
Memories and cold hard facts
Watched it all come rushing back
All the times I told you what to do
All the times I thought I knew

Soothe yourself
