Empathy – Alanis Morissette

Lyrics:

There are so many parts that I have hidden and denied and lost.
There are so many ways that I have cut off my nose to spite my face.
There are so many colors that I still try to hide while I paint.
And there are so many tunes that I secretly sing as I wait.

You come along
And invite these parts out of hiding, oh oh
This invitation is one that I’ve stopped fighting, oh oh

Thank you for seeing me,
I feel so less lonely.
Thank you for getting me,
I’m healed by your empathy.
Ha-a, this intimacy, ha-a-a-a

There were so many times I thought I had died, not being truly known.
There’ve been so many moments, forever lonely in my vocation.

You come along
To celebrate each feeling,
And there you are
All honor and inquiring, ha-a-a-a

Thank you for seeing me,
I feel so less lonely.
Thank you for getting me,
I’m healed by your empathy.
Ha-a, this intimacy, ha-a-a-a

There was a day where the trust that was being asked of me,
Required too much, you see, to accept your generosity,
To know myself enough to let you help me.

Thank you for seeing me,
I feel so less lonely.
Thank you for getting me,
I’m healed by your empathy.
Ha-a, this intimacy, ha-a-a-a
