Arden, Jann - What About Me? Lyrics

There are things that stay locked deep inside
You cannot fight them all by yourself
You need someone to bear the blunt
There are nice and linger beyond the fray
You cannot hide beyond the bed that long
You're not that strong, you need someone

What about me? [x2]
I'd fall, I'd crawl for you
I'd keep them at bay (the daemons in the dark)
I'd lie, I'd try for you
I'd chase them away, I'd never let you down
I'd never let you drown

There are things that hide deep in your heart
That never see them all, the ghost of dreams
Will never see the light of day
There are nights that punish the words you break
You cannot hide them all, when darkness comes
You'll need someone to light the way

What about me? [x2]
I'd fall, I'd crawl for you
I'd keep them at bay (the daemons in the dark)
I'd lie, I'd try for you
I'd chase them away, I'd never let you down
I'd never let you drown

I'd never let you down
I'd never let you drown

What about me? [x2]
I'd fall, I'd crawl for you
I'd keep them at bay (the daemons in the dark)
I'd lie, I'd try for you
I'd chase them away, I'd never let you down
I'd never let you drown

    This song hit close to home during that time. She couldn’t of been any more insensitive. Hearing this on the radio I immediately who is that singing.

  76. Yan Yan

    How do you cool your lips
    After a summer's kiss?
    How do you rid the sweat
    After the body bliss?

    How do you turn your eyes

    From the romantic glare?

    How do you block the sound
    Of a voice you'd know anywhere?

    Oh, I really should have known
    By the time you drove me home
    By the vagueness in your eyes
    Your casual good byes

    By the chill in your embrace
    The expression on your face that told me
    Maybe you might have some advice to give
    On how to be insensitive, insensitive, insensitive

    How do you numb your skin
    After the warmest touch?
    How do you slow your blood
    After the body rush?

    How do you free your soul
    After you've found a friend?
    How do you teach your heart
    It's a crime to fall in love again?

    Oh, you probably won't remember me
    It's probably ancient history
    I'm one of the chosen few
    Who went ahead and fell for you
    I'm out of vogue, I'm out of touch
    I fell too fast, I feel too much
    I thought that you might have some advice to give
    On how to be insensitive

    Oh, I really should have known
    By the time you drove me home
    By the vagueness in your eyes
    Your casual good byes
    By the chill in your embrace
    The expression on your face that told me
    Maybe you might have some advice to give
    On how to be, insensitive

    How to be
    How to be
    How to be

  77. Sarah Green

    I don’t know how I was already feeling these feelings at 16 but I was. I was a Virgin still but oh I felt this song at the time, boy problems.

  86. Carrie B

    I loved this song - so fantastic to rediscover this lovely artist!

  87. Jeanine Simard

    When I was in grade 5, a boy asked me to go to a school dance with him, I said no. He asked me again in grade 6 and in grade 7, I said no both times. For whatever reason, I started to like him back. A snowball dance was coming up and so I worked up the nerve to ask him. He said no!! One evening we were skating at the rink - we pushed over a hockey net and he was pushing it around on the ice as I laid on the netting. He would pick up speed and then jump on the netting beside me while the net slid across the rink. At some point he says to me "ask me again". We did end up going to the dance together and shared our first kiss to this song. We dated for the rest of grade 7 and then again for two years after high school. We're still friends and this is still a sweet memory for both of us.

  88. atkayma

    The anthem of my 90s broken heart

  89. Kathy Collier

    I forgot how moving this song is. It gets me right in the feelers every time. The words are so rich and ring true because when someone who says they love you then treats you the opposite is truly being insensitive.....and an asshole.

  90. Blazing Pika

    Mid of 2019

  91. Tim Jones

    Nobody could ever duplicate the good old days of 90’s music. Even the early 2000’s were underrated.

  92. Monique Page

    Listening still in 2019, deep song, they don't make songs like this anymore!

  93. Marie Cynthia

    So sexy 😍

  94. plutosunshine do u do all those things..
