one more time with feeling lyrics – regina spektor

“one more time with feeling”

your st*tches are all out
but your scars are healing wrong
and the helium balloon inside your room has come undone
and it’s pushing up at the ceiling
and the flickering lights it cannot get beyond

oh everyone takes turns
now it’s yours to play the part
and they’re sitting all around you
holding copies of your chart
and the misery in their eyes
is synchronized and reflected into yours

hold on
one more time with feeling
try it again
breathing’s just a rhythm
say it in your mind
until you know that the words are right
this is, why we, fight

do do do do do do-we-oo-we-oo-we-oo
do do do do do do
do do do do do dooooooooo

you thought by now you’d be
so much better than you are
you thought by now they’d see
that you had come so far
and the pride inside their eyes
would synchronize into a love you’ve never know
so much more than you’ve been shown

hold on
one more time with feeling
try it again
breathing’s just a rhythm
say it in your mind
until you know that the words are right
this is, why we, fight
this is, why, we fight

do do do do do do-we-oo-we-oo-we-oo
do do do do do do
do do do do do dooooooooo
