Song Lyrics


Building a Better Me
by Dogwood

Album: Reverse, Then Forward Again
by Dogwood


Superficial nature wearing thin
I can't seem to begin
What really do I see
When I stare back at me?

As crushing time reveals my foe
Inheriting all woe
Solutions in the past
Conditioned not to ask

It's what you're meant to be
Your name and number
Be all that you should be
You will recover

Things you haven't lost
'cause they don't see you
Like you think they do
Please just become you

Release your fear is what he said
This all came to a head
Feel cheated and abused
Traditioned follows through

Though I can't see how this will end
I know that you will always pull me through

It's what you're meant to be
Your name and number
Be all that you should be
You will recover

Things you haven't lost
'cause they don't see you
Like you think they do
Please just become you

Mankind: That word should have new meaning for all of us today
We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore

Go ahead and run
Run home and cry to mama
Me?
I'm through runnin'

You cant be happy all the time, that's life
Take it back

It's what you're meant to be
Your name and number
Be all that you should be
You will recover

Things you haven't lost
'cause they don't see you
Like you think they do
Please just become you

It's what you're meant to be
Your name and number
Be all that you should be
You will recover

Things you haven't lost
'cause they don't see you
Like you think they do
Please just become you

My soul went searching for a cause
But came back empty-handed
The emptiness you see
Building a better me
