Lyrics

(Source: One of the Three)

We were doing so well,
We had broken the spell,
And freedom seemed just within reach.
We had managed the bend,
Between lover and friend,
Found a place we could possibly meet,
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I just run headlong to defeat,
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I defeat, I defeat, I defeat, I defeat
I'm so hard on myself;
Don't deserve any help,
So I must let you go, let you go.
So I pushed you away,
While I hoped you would stay,
But I don't let you know, let you know.
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I keep running around to this beat,
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I defeat, I defeat, I defeat, I defeat.
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I keep running around to this beat.
Yes, it's me,
I can't help myself;
I defeat, I defeat, help me,
I can't help myself;
I defeat, I defeat, help me,
I can't help myself;
I defeat, I defeat, help me.
