Watsky - Talking To Myself Lyrics




One day you opened up your eyes inside of you
Inside a world inside a universe you didn't get to choose
You didn't get to pick the rules or pick the past or set the pace
Or cast the cast and crew you didn't get to pick your starting place
And though it was a race you didn't understand
You simply lined up on the blocks and when the pistol popped you ran
And when you tripped and dropped you picked yourself up off the ground
And picked your scabs you knew you had to pick a plan to end what you began
As you got older there were days of cold surrender
Days of shrugged whatever's folded in with days of shocking splendor
But as time advanced the lovely days were covered up from view
By an advancing melancholy haze that hovered near the dew
Yet there were moments
There were these pure arresting moments when you stepped outside your head
Outside your pain outside control, outside the bullshit, out of body, out of rage
Outside the need to get it, get it, you will never get it, that's okay

Have you felt a little off today
Had a lot to say
But wound up talking to yourself?
I've been huntin' for a kindly ear
But couldn't find one near
And wound up talking to myself

Had a little spot where you been going through a lot
Wanna shove it to the bottom, but a trouble gonna bubble to the top
Then the bubble gonna pop and the hustle never ever gonna stop
Cause you get up in the morning get ahead then get to bed and then you do it all again until the moment that you drop
You need a plot
What you wanna witness with this life you got
You kicked and fought tryna get up in your skin and pick this lock
That ticking clock lets you know that bitch you got these situations with you
Issues someone fit to quick should sit you should down to talk
Ever wonder who's the crazy one, people walking to work as if nothing is off
But if a person really got it they would be cracking a bottle on somebody's head and looting from shops
Are there times you're alone now when nobody's home but you walk around muttering under your breath
Second guess shit saying goddammit goddammit goddammit just whispering soft
Do you ever get lost, deep in your thoughts, tripping when you think about the cost of seeing this through
When you tie your stomach into knots that you don't know how to undo
But do you ever have another moment after that, when you can see
There's no one way this has to be?
Or maybe that's just me

Have you felt a little off today
Had a lot to say
But wound up talking to yourself?
I've been huntin' for a kindly ear
But couldn't find one near
And wound up talking to myself

How you feeling today?..

  7. J T

    I thought it was... cracking a bottle, instead of looting up shops. Or maybe cracking bottles on someones head who was looting up shops. Hope the cd has lyrics printed like the good ole days and the stuff I watched is incorrect.

    Wahoojie

    They would be cracking a bottle on somebody's head and looting from shops

  8. Dark Fang

    Dear Mr. Watsky how you put into words how I feel going through years of trauma makes me understand that maybe im not the only one.My son introduced me to your music, then to this particular song. I've recently stayed at a facility to get help because after dealing with my issues since my first memories I had lost strength. Thank you for asking how am I feeling today! I'm here. Mr. Watsky thank you for being you and thank you for your words.

    For me, this song is so multifaceted and multipurpose. Like, whatever mood I am in whenever I play it, this song matches, and enhances. May it be deep and sad, upbeat and almost poppy, ect.. It's like my mind can pick out whatever mood I need empathized. I wonder if this was your intention in making this Watsky?

    Trying to do an analytical essay of this song/video. Why is Wastky so not talked about? Such an awesome song, video, and message. Love everything Watsky does.

  50. Kayla Meid

    I hope to be able to attend your show at Ram Head in MD this Feb. I love your lyrics and the flow between them. As a writer, listening to your music hits me in a new way that just always encourages my writings.
    I wish one day I could meet you and just have a day chart in over lyrics and inspirations.
    This song, above almost all of them, always hits me on a personal level.

    My Christmas wish: to one on one with Watsky ❤

  51. Steven Terry

  60. Ember

    Thought I heard the Gorillaz for a sec

  61. Starburst

    This video makes me think of how many sides to ourselves there are, and when we are alone we can’t just pick one personality to wear that works best for a situation we are alone and are forced to face the entire reality of who we are and our many sides

  62. Kawzi

    No ones gonna say it? ok... She THICC

  65. I make YouTube confused

    When you tie your stomach into knots that you don’t know how to undo

  66. perry toombs

    Straight bars

  67. Tylix Crylix

    song is godlike vid is dog shit :D

  68. Clint Hudson

    2018 this song is still me haha. So amazing.

  69. chris regrut

    This song hits too close to home for so many people, this is my favorite, right next to exquisite corpse

  70. Showleh Vandermaas

    Your lyrics often make me wonder what kind of spiritual data you have studied and with whom. The two lines that stand-out the most to me are ("when the pistol popped you ran" - from this song) and ("you still won that marathon of swimming up that Fallopian" - from man of constant sorrow). Both lines refer (I think) to that first race we all ran in life, the one each of us won (with the prize being the physical body we now reside in). George, if you see this post, do you mind sharing more on the subject? (such as am I on track with your intended meaning, and where you got these ideas). You have the most awesome lyrics and your brilliance is reflected in all of your "creations".

  71. CiCi Marie

    Rewatching all your videos after hearing about your new song coming Dx

  72. FRI SBY

    FIFA is a shit game

  73. Dazz442 The bearded one

    You and I will never agree on a lot of things but this song speaks to me thanks George. #Respect

  74. bringoutthelegos

    This resonates within me on a personal level, as I mostly talk to myself, mainly due to not finding someone who will listen.

  75. Ariane Potts

    Thank you for you’re art Watsky it’s much needed💓

  76. Danielle Wayne

    No one hits my heart and soul like you watsky...your way more important to a lot of people then you will ever know. Your music just grabs my ears so easily ,I spend so much time just listening to your music. .and your poetry...I can't wait to finally see you live...I'm sure I'll have a heart attack...but it'll be worth it. . . I love you so much. . . you help me so much. Everyday. Don't ever forget about all of us who love you dearly.

  77. SexySax Dude

    Good song but what’s that girls name 🤔🤔

  78. LarryHow

    Damn...

  79. Agent Orange

    Hes too smart for the masses

  80. Noradrenalin

    BRILLIANT! This is really a masterpiece! It touches me very much, both the video and the song itself. Brilliant. Thank you.

  82. Lily Anderson

    George watsky for president

  83. RandomInterwebzGuy

    Watsky, I’m not sure if you will ever see this, but if you do...

    You helped me get through my childhood and your music is so beautiful I selfishly hope you never ever stop. You’re a one in a billion talent and I’m so grateful you decided to make music. Honestly I first saw you on ERB and ever since that second verse I knew you were gonna be crazy big, then when I followed your page I saw the evolution of a man who unintentionally taught a whole spectrum of people that it’s okay. We all experience the same things in different ways and your music truthfully respects that. Honestly you were the inspiration for a lot. Anywho, have a great day!

    TL:DR
    Watsky you’re awesome! Don’t stop making music!

  84. J T

    Good choice in no real face tattoos. Yet the ones on the album look cool.

  85. Anthony Rozzen

  86. Sparky Jr.

  87. yamaharyder tally

  89. Amanda Cordova

  90. Adam Ingraham

    This song is about battling Anxiety. Pure and simple. At least in my opinion.

  91. Lime on Disguise

    I hope the people who downvoted this get the help they need.

  92. therealbullTA

    this is almost perfect

  93. Thoroughly Colored

    DUCK MAN GHIS MESSED ME UP

  94. AlerDaBear

    Wow, amazing choreography and dancing... oh yeah, song was good too.

  95. Zoë Phoenix

    I relate but also my life is cushy so either I'm an attention seeking bitch without fully realizing it or I'm hella sick in the head.. probably both tbh

  96. bill brickbreaker

    George you rock

  97. alexander tillman

    Man fuck you.... This is some good shit..
