Lyrics

If I Am Not For Myself

I don’t blame you for leaving
You’ve seen it all so many times before
And I won’t try to change your mind
I don’t have that kind of strength left anymore
I don’t imagine you’d believe in me
After all that we’ve been through
But before you go just listen please
‘Cause it’s time to speak the truth

If I am not for myself
Who on earth will be for me?
And if I’m in this thing alone
What kind of person would I be?
What will it take for you to see?

No one said it would be easy
Being true to self and also someone else
So if I get lost in the process
There might be times when I could use a little help
I’m not asking you to baby me
I’m an independent man
All I need is some small compromise
While I do the best I can

If I am not for myself
Who on earth will be for me?
And if I’m in this thing alone
What kind of person would I be?
What will it take for you to see?

That I’ve been trying hard to figure it out
To make you proud
At last the moment has come
There’s no other time but now

If I am not for myself
Who on earth will be for me?
And if I’m in this thing alone
What kind of person would I be?
What would it take for you to see me?
