To Myself (Hoku)

Everybody has a story to tell And I'd like to share mine with you But my heart is kind of fragile And I just can't imagine It's something that I ought to do And I realize I'm still hurting deep inside Where love used to live So I keep myself To myself I don't want nobody to know me (I keep myself) I keep myself To myself I don't want no lover to own me My heart feels like its all broken up In tiny pieces that I'll never find And I know that I will heal someday I will feel again But it might take a little more time And can't you see I'm so insulated No one's touchin' me At least for now (at least for now) So I keep myself To myself I don't want nobody to know me (I keep myself) I keep myself To myself I don't want no lover to own me Then in the shadows of yesterday Only peace of mind is when I pray That someday I can find a way back home Until I'm ready (until I'm ready) To love again (until I'm ready) Until I'm ready (until I'm ready) Until then (I keep myself) Then in the shadow of yesterday Only peace of mind is when I pray That somehow I would find a way I keep myself Then in the shadow of yesterday Only peace of mind is when I pray That somehow I would find a way I keep myself I keep myself To myself I keep myself I keep myself To myself
