after a while lyrics – bif naked

i want you to know i needed time to rest.
and, i must confess to you.
i am hardest on myself.
all i ever wanted was to try to do my best.
and i want tell the truth now.
i am unwell.

after awhile, i just lay down.
after awhile, my chin ain’t up.
bare-knuckle fighter in the third round.
after awhile, it’s all bad luck.

[chorus]
save me. save me from myself.
drowning in the wishing well.
i will try to rise above.
i am never good enough.

i want you to know that i needed time alone.
don’t you try to tell me that you really didn’t know.
all i ever wanted was to never leave this bed.
and i want to tell the truth – my smile is just pretend.

after awhile, i got sleepy.
after awhile, safety lasted.
after awhile, disenchanted.
after awhile, i just fasted.

[chorus]

after awhile, i just lay down.
after awhile, my chin ain’t up.
bare-knuckle fighter in the third round.
after awhile, it’s all bad luck.

[chorus]

i’m no good for you.
