crucify lyrics – amerie

every finger in the room
is pointing at me
i wanna spit in their faces
then i get afraid of what that could bring
i got a bowling ball in my stomach
i got a desert in my mouth
figures that my courage would choose to sell our now
i’ve been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
i’ve been raising up my hands
drive another nail in
just what god needs
one more victim

[chorus:]
why do we
crucify ourselves
every day
i crucify myself
nothing i do is good enough for you
crucify myself
every day
and my heart is sick of being in chains

got a kick for a dog
beggin’ for love
i gotta have my suffering
so that i can have my cross
i know a cat named easter
he says will you ever learn
you’re just an empty cage girl
if you kill the bird
i’ve been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
i’ve been raising up my hands
drive another nail in
got enough guilt to start
my own religion
please be
save me
i cry

[chorus:]
why do we
crucify ourselves
every day
i crucify myself
nothing i do is good enough for you
crucify myself
every day
and my heart is sick of being in chains
