numb lyrics – marina & the diamonds

“numb”

one track mind like a gold fish
stuck inside my petri dish
i can’t breath and i can’t smile
this better be worth my while

i feel numb most of the time
the lower i get the higher i’ll climb
and i will wonder why
i got dark only to shine
looking for the golden light
oh, it’s a reasonable sacrifice
burn, burn, burn bright

forgo family, forgo friends
it’s how it started, how it ends
i can open up and cry
coz i’ve been silent all my life

i feel numb most of the time
the lower i get the higher i’ll climb
and i will wonder why
i got dark only to shine
looking for the golden light
oh it’s a reasonable sacrifice
burn, burn, burn bright
burn, burn, burn bright

oh, i get dark oh and i’m in h*ll
i need a friend, oh but i can’t yell
yeah, i’m no good, no good to anyone
coz all i care about is being number one

shine, looking for the golden light
oh it’s a reasonable sacrifice

shine, looking for the golden light
oh it’s a reasonable sacrifice (sacrifice)

i feel numb most of the time
the lower i get the higher i’ll climb
and i will wonder why
i got dark only to shine

and i light up the sky
stars that burn the brightest
fall so fast and p*ss you by
cough like empty lighters

i feel numb most of the time
the lower i get the higher i’ll climb
and i will wonder why
i get dark only to shine

and i light up the sky
stars that burn the brightest
fall so fast and p*ss you by
spark like empty lighters
