lyrics

I had a kingdom in another life
Had riches dripping from my throat
I didn’t make it through the needle’s eye
I couldn’t keep it all afloat
Now I’m particular and it’s habitual
Just a product of an iron will
I want to let you know, ain’t nothing personal
Always terrified of not getting my fill

I was protecting myself
Just protecting myself

We’re lionesses with all our own fears
Won’t let them stray far from the pack
We always realise in our darker parts
Only the weak ones don’t come back
I ain’t giving it up, now that I’ve got it down
I’ve earned the answers after all this time
Do what you wanna do, ain’t nothing personal
I just gotta have what is rightfully mine

I was protecting myself
Just protecting myself
I was protecting myself
Just protecting myself

So now surely you can sympathise
I took all that under my wing
I’m sorry that you say I made you cry
But who am I to stop this bird from singing
I want to tell you that, you weren’t the only one
Who thought that I was always taking your part
I want to let you know, ain’t nothing personal
I just gotta finish everything I start

I was protecting myself
Just protecting myself
I was protecting myself
Just protecting myself
