  1. Life

From the album Undergroundling

written by Lisa Richards.

It's no secret that I struggle with depression. This song is called 'Life' and its about the competing desires to live and not live at the same time. I recorded it live in a studio in Austin with Chet Himes. Chet is a fine recording engineer who has worked with Eric Johnson, Christopher Cross and ZZ top was well as many many others!.

Lyrics

Life

I want to cut myself but I don’t
i want to scar my body
make the outside look like the inside feels
I want to disappear from this world
this mortal coil
I want to touch no one
and I want no one to touch

Then again I want to be
a part of it all
here in this world
I want to be full to the brim
full of life

I sometimes smoke cigarettes
I entertain the thought of dope
often think a joint would do me good
and sometimes I think I might
but I won’t take a chance with this
hard fought, hard earned, hard won life no way
I don’t feed the hunger, I hope it goes away
i keep myself to myself, I move into the day

making myself a part of it all
here in this world
I want to be full to the brim

full of life
full of life

life wasn’t how I planned it
not how I imagined it to be
I want to be amazed by every breath I take
I want to be surprised by the very fact that I’m alive
wake up in the morning
a smile upon my face
so surprised to find myself in this
enchanting place

I’m part of it all
here in this world
I am full to the brim

full of life
full of life
full of life
