die alone lyrics – ingrid michaelson

i woke up this morning with a funny taste in my head.
spackled some b*tter over my whole grain bread.
something tastes different, maybe it’s my tongue.
something tastes different, suddenly i’m not so young.

i’m just a stranger, even to myself.
a re-arranger of the proverbial bookshelf.
don’t be a fool girl, tell him you love him.
don’t be a fool girl, you’re not above him.

i never thought i could love anyone but myself.
now i know i can’t love anyone but you.
you make me think that maybe i won’t die alone.
maybe i won’t die alone.

kiss the boys as they walk by, call me their baby.
but little do they know, i’m just a maybe.
maybe my baby will be the one to leave me sore.
maybe my baby will settle the score.

i never thought i could love anyone but myself.
now i know i can’t love anyone but you.
you make me think that maybe i won’t die alone.
maybe i won’t die alone.

what have i become?
something soft and really quite dumb.
because i’ve fallen, oh, ‘cuz i’ve fall-fallen, oh ‘cuz i’ve fall-fall-fallen
so far away from the place where i started from.

i never thought i could love anyone.
i never thought i could love anyone.
i never thought i could love anyone,
but you, but you, but you, but you, but you
but you make me think that maybe i won’t die alone.
maybe i won’t die alone.
