Lyrics

I’ve lived, I’ve loved, I’ve liberated
I’ve pushed, I’ve shoved, I’ve calculated
And it’s a lot like madness, it’s a lot like control
And if you put it down to a sentence, it just runs across your world
It’s a lot like starburst, it’s a lot like the night
And it bears a faint resemblance
Bears a faint resemblance to life

I’ve been wild, I’ve been bad, I’ve been carelessly idle
I’ve been strong, I’ve been weak, I’ve been suicidal
And it’s a lot like passion, it’s a lot like fear
And it grabs a stranglehold on all the ones you keep too near
It’s a lot like poison, it’s a lot like a knife
And it bears a faint resemblance
Bears a faint resemblance to life

Seems my whole life was tied to your shadow
Now that you’re gone, I can feel it unravel
Thanks for the lesson of our final dance:
Next time I sell my soul, I’ll make the devil pay in advance

So here I shall stand
I’m not your ‘angry young white girl’ to conquer or command
As I try to understand:
Did it all go to hell, or was this exactly what you planned?
‘Cause it’s a lot like deception, it’s a lot like proof
And you need a hall of mirrors just to figure out the truth
It’s a lot like weakness, and a lot like might
It bears a faint resemblance
Bears a faint resemblance

Emerging now from under your shadow
That web of lies can finally unravel

I lost, I found, I consummated
I tore, but I healed, and I desecrated
And it’s a lot like the darkness, but a lot like the light
And it bears a faint resemblance
Bears a faint resemblance
A lot like the darkness, but a lot like the light
And it bears a faint resemblance
Bears a faint resemblance to life
