Katy Perry - My Own Monster Lyrics

I turn my head, there's nothing there
All I own is my thoughts for my fears
I close the door to keep out the bad
I plug my ears to keep out these fears

And I cry

So hold me close
For I'm so tired of holding myself
So very tired and tired
Tired and tired
Just hold me

I listen to these voices
Or is it this house that's giving me chills
As I lie upon this little girls bed?
Who's at the door? Who's walking near?
Or has my imagination spilled?
This little girl all grown up still fears

Oh, and I cry

So hold me close
For I'm so tired of holding myself
So very tired and tired
Tired and tired
Just hold me

Where can I go, where can I hide
from these evil sufferings?
Oh, these images painted on my walls
They say there's a place that I can
hide in the shadow of your wings
Oh Lord, bring me to this place of refuge

No more tears

So hold me close
For I'm so tired of holding myself
So very tired and tired
Tired and tired
Just hold me

  19. Shani

    @IdRatherBinADream92 Maybe,I think it may all depends on what song and if the meaning she had back then still means the same now.If you get what I mean.But I do hope that soon she will perform one of these Gospel songs at a concert of hers,but most likely the people who are at the concert they wouldn't know any of these songs,only the big fans would know..(KatyCats).

    @jared743 Ugh thank you! It's on every single video and it makes no sense.

  25. 16 Janeiro 1993 RocketMan

    it should be released

  26. Isabel Lalic

    Even though she sounds like she have a cold or she's chewing gum, this song has a great meaning. As in. I just keep on wondering what kept her out of singing this type of songs though. I hope she makes a remake of the whole Katy Hudson album!

    Ha! It is not likely that you took that picture, sang the songs, wrote the music, or hold the copyrights to any of these. unless you have been licenced to display any of these, you are likely breaking Copyright. I am OK with that, but don't say that you hold the copyright.

  28. Ashley Dufault

    Her voice is so freaking beautiful <3

  29. hellokitty122304

    this song is amazing...and yet so very haunting..it reminds me of a little girl who may be abused by her parents...maybe her dad?? sexually...its scary and yet a great song.
