SWALLOWS ME WHOLE
Lori McKenna


You say you think you can help me
Think of me as someone who bleeds
Well I never told you to love me
That's your sort of greed
I can make my own decisions
I can do what I want to do
And I don't have to share my addiction
With any of you

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like it this way, I know when to pray
I'm in control till it swallows me whole

I know you'd like to control me
You always need to be right
Because I'm late once or twice
Lose a job or stay out all night
But I can see high above it
The world is a boundary for you
And I know that you'd like to see through it
The way that I do

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like this it this way, I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
I said I was sorry a hundred times before
And I'm in control till it swallows me whole

Well you say that you have to leave now
You can't stand the things that I do
And you know that I'll need this more
Than I'll ever need you

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like this it this way I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I'm in control
Till it swallows me whole
Till it swallows me whole
Swallows me whole
