Taking It Back

TAKING IT BACK LYRICS

MARIGOLDEN

VERSE 1

I’m tired of trying to take up as little room as, as possible

Tired of making myself small

Angry, like I’m at fault

Some things are meant to be

Other things are just crazy

I stopped eating because of you

Stopped believing I could do

Stopped dreaming ‘cause of you

Locked myself up in my room

Now just nightmares because of you

Eight years to open up the wound

Take back my power

Speak the truth and now

I hope you’re stuck in some boring dead end job

Working 9 to 5, wondering how the days got so long

‘Cause you made, one night take years of my life

I hope the girlfriend after me gave up on you

Hope she realised quickly that she got better things to do

‘Cause you dragged me through hell

Poured salt on the wound

Made a game out of the truth, really

Was I just a body?

CHORUS
‘Cause I’m going back

To the place you lived

Back when we were kids

I can live through this

On my own feet nowTaking it back, taking it back, taking it backGoing back

To the place you lived

Back when we were kids

I can live through this

I’ve gotten this far somehowVERSE 2And still now, I feel like a shell

Like I’ll crack if you touch me

Like my eyes are a time capsule and my memory the key

I’m angry and I’m scared

Take a long time to trust

Even longer to love but

Still, I love and maybe

If it were just once I could handle it better

Maybe if it were just once I’d go out no matter the weather

But I’ve been tricked and I’ve been tortured

Like a pestle and mortar

Grinding my bones into dust

And tossing me out into the water

Am I sick, or just tired

Of fighting fire with fire

Like if I could control the pain maybe the burden would be lighter

I’m a fighter, some days

And I cry some days

I love life some days

And I wanna die some days, and that

Doesn’t make me weak ‘cause that’s the truth and it’s courageous

To embrace the contradictions and live life full and shamelessly and

Fuck it, I will live

Fuck it, I will live

CHORUSI’m going back

To the place you lived

Back when we were kids

I can live through this

On my own feet nowTaking it back, taking it back, taking it backGoing back

To the place you lived

Back when we were kids

I can live through this

I’ve gotten this far somehowOUTROTaking it back, taking it back, taking it backTaking it back, taking it back, taking it back(spoken) Give and take, lost and found, but I’m not lost anymore
