​Emancipate Myself

This song is by Thirsty Merc and appears on the EP First Work (2003) and on the album Thirsty Merc (2004).

Every breath you ta...

As if I'd sing that song to you,
You probably think you deserve it at the present time
But if only you knew how you treated me
When we were together then you might understand

Remember the time you made me wait for a month
'Cause you had exams which I was cool about
But then the night you finished
You barred me from all your plans
And you went out with other people

Now I'll always give you the benefit of the doubt
And I think there's enough natural maturity floating around
For the tension and release time to even out
Between two people like you and me

But I've been thinking and since we broke up
I realised things were mostly in your favour
And a normal person wouldn't put up with this
But for some stupid reason I don't wanna move on

Now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Now I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself

Now I gotta say that all of this is coming down
On me like a tonne of bricks
At this present time, I don't have much cash
And I'm just trying to figure out the rest of my life

But I think a lot of people would agree that
All you need is a feeling of freedom
And when you're in emotional limbo
Everything you think about and do is filtered through that

But I don't wanna make you unhappy or jealous in any way
Because ultimately in life it's your own choice
Who you surround yourself with
And I'm responsible for those things too

And I've treated people badly at times in relationships
And maybe what you're doing is some kind of payback
For all those past lives,
But that also doesn't change the fact that

Now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Now I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself
There's no spirit to find me
And no wishing well
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself

So whatcha gonna do now (you gonna keep me hanging on or something?)
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on

'Cause I have a feeling it's all in my own mind
And if I have anything to do with it
Knowing me I enjoy putting myself through this
Kind of trauma to a degree
How 'bout you? Thought so

Maybe you shouldn't call me anymore
Because I need some time to get to know myself again
And once again we say it's final
Then I'm gonna miss you even more, even the most, yeah

But I don't want you to know that I'm missing you yeah
Let's establish even more communication breakdown and wonder why
Later on all the honesty and trust is gone between us

Now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself
There's no spirit to find me
And no wishing well
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself
Gotta get out
