Build It Back

written by: Sweet Insanity

They tore me to shreds
I didn't even put up a fight
And now there's nothing left of me
But the shell of the woman that I used to be

I let them take the best of me
Just handed myself over on a silver platter
What else can I give you? How 'bout a little dignity?
Here, take my self-respect; I have no reason to take pride in me

Need to pull myself together and find a way
to find solace in the person that I am now, today
Need to let go of the past in more ways than one
Need to readjust my goals and stop thinking my life's over
before its begun

Can't seem to keep my rhythm,
Can't keep my life on track
I've given too much of myself
Now I'm worried there's nothing left I can use to build it back

Don't build back, build new! All the greatest things are build from nothing but desire and will to do the impossible and we can do the impossible!!!
Again great song!...and sounds like you are telling my life, but without falls we would never be able to rise again and again and as much times as we need to for every time we rise we are stronger and better :)

Thank you, for the compliments and the advice. I only hope that I can pick myself back up quickly because I'm driving myself crazy! I don't mind building new, I just need some sort of positive change. I'm working on it :)

Sorry love I can only speak by my own experience but don't wait too long to make a change...Yes You are the one that makes changes in your life and builds it!!!...And any change is a good change (wise man sad this to me ones) this doesn't mean you don't have to think about how your next steps in life will affect your future thou...Your song is very good, I'm sure most of us can find ourselves in it and your already helping yourself by putting your pain on to the paper. Read your poems and you will find a strong person in them that waits no one to help her but helps herself!
