The Monster Inside Of Me

Play

Every time you look at me
You see the monster in my eye
If you could only help me girl
We could be in paradise
Be happy every after
And there would be no more tears
Eternal peace is what I'm after
Maybe, gir,l you could help me understand
The monster inside of me
You know that I want you
You can see that I need you
But you hate the monster
Well, honey, I do, too.
I need your love to carry me
Out of the darkness of the pit
You know I feel just like shit
Maybe, girl, you could help me fight
The monster inside of me

Maybe if someone had said to Vincent Van Gogh
"Keep punching, Joe!"
Maybe he'd be here today.
Maybe he'd be here today.
You inspire the strength within
And I can be conquerer
As my spirit rise above us
Maybe, girl, you could help me destroy
The monster inside of me
And we could be happy
And we could be happy
And we could be happy
And we could be happy
