Lyrics of My blues

I´ve been bangin on the walls all day tryin to
find my beat tryin to pass the time and I
hold my breath and count to hundred until I
hit the ground then I stand up tall for ya
then I stand up tall for ya

Tick tock take a step to the floor feel my
whiplash but I dance some more then I
spread my broken wings and try to soar but I
crash and burn but then I stand up tall for ya
I always stand up tall for ya

If you could only see me now

I´ve been sittin´ here sippin´ on this juice
hiding in plain sight and feelin just all right
and I´ve been waiting for you
talkin´to myself and dancin´ away my blues

Bang bang hear my racing heart and ya
watch me bleed watch me fall apart as I´m
spinning round and round and singing loud but I
hit the ground but oh I do it all for you
You know I do it all for you
