By Myself
©2007 Pilar French (BMI)

What do you want from me?
You want me to set you free?
I've got some news for you; I’m just a prisoner myself.

I'm not your mother.
I'm not your savior.
I've got some news for you; I can't even save myself.

I don't want to be your obsession
And I don't want to be your possession.
All I want to do is be by myself.

I can feel your eyes on me.
I wonder what you think you see.
I've got some news for you.
I'm standing on the inside and I can't see much in here myself.

I don't want to be your idle fantasy
And I don't want to feel your gaze burn through me.
All I want to do is be by myself.
