MAKING OF MY OWN
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

You are a monster in the night,
You are a shadow on the stair-
In the mirror’s morning light,
It’s your face and not mine there-
Whispering darkly in my head,
Turning dreamland ‘round and ‘round,
You raise me far up off my bed,
Watch me plummet to the ground!

TELL ME WHAT DO YOU NEED?
WHY DON’T YOU LEAVE ME ALONE?
YOU’RE NOT A DIFFERENT BREED,
YOU ARE A MAKING OF MY OWN!

I hear you calling, hear you cry,
Feel you rattle in your cage-
If I don’t feed you, you will die,
A hungry child that will not age-
Hold me tightly in your hand,
Wrap me ‘round your finger-
You are the leader of the band,
I am just your singer!

I try to break this bond of steel,
But we never seem to part-
I wonder which of us is real?
Which is fabric from the start?
When I finally push you down,
Seems you stay there far too long-
I feel my spirit start to drown
‘Cause there’s something very wrong!

I call myself a slave to you,
Yet it’s my foot that is free-
I’m always wanting something new,
Still you give it all to me-
I think I understand the truth,
Though the thought of it is strange-
Choice was made back in our youth,
‘Cause we felt we couldn’t change!

TELL ME WHAT DO YOU NEED?
PLEASE DON’T YOU LEAVE ME ALONE!
TO YOU I WILL CONCEDE,
I AM THE FLESH AND YOU THE BONE-
TELL ME WHAT DO YOU NEED
TO OVERCOME THE FEAR THAT’S GROWN?
I”LL FOLLOW WHERE YOU LEAD,
I AM A MAKING OF YOUR OWN!
A MAKING OF YOUR OWN!
