Bottom Shelf

This song is by Damien Rice and appears on the album Live at Outremont Theatre, Montreal (2004).

I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in
And I put them up on a higher hill
To a place I've never been.

And I'll wait for you if you want me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
And I'll wait for you if you ask me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

And I'm always hanging on,
And I'm always closing doors,
And I'm always saying no,
No, when I really really want it all,
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you.

And I'll take myself from the bottom shelf
And I'm on the street again
But it's the newer town, and the rain come down,
In a place I've never been.

And I play for you if you ask me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
Yeah I play for you if you want me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

'Cause I'm always hanging on,
And I'm always closing doors.
And I'm always saying no,
No, when I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you.

When I really really want it all
I really really want
Yeah I really really want it all
When I really really wanted you.

I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in.
And I put them up on a higher hill,
To a place I've never been.

And I'll play for you if you ask me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
Yeah I'll play for you if you want me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
