U2 LYRICS


"Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"


Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I...that's alright
We're the same soul
I don't need...I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can - you - hear - me - when - I -
Sing, you're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me...

Where are we now?
I've still got to let you know
A house still doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone...

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Today, my boss turned to me and said "I don't understand you." Just like that. Just like .. it was some truth or something. And I know he's foreign and doesn't speak english very well..but..it was just the way he said it, ya know? Like he really didn't understand me. And that really freaked me out. What if...no one understood me?
What if...What if I was just this girl that everyone would just smile and nod towards. I feel like whenever I do something...they just say "Oh, that's just the crazy girl and her antics."
Am I really "lost in translation"?
Am I really speaking in a language that no one speaks? Like some...high-powered mutant dialect? It's like...you suddenly realize that you're talking in this...strange tongue that no one knows...and then realizing you can't learn the right language. Then, you feel so...completely...and utterly....
alone.
