Gotta Get Up From Here
There's a song that I downloaded for free from iTunes that is currently rocking the hell out of me, not to mention that it smacks me in head of being totally applicable to much that I fret over. The artist is a new artist, Ellie Lawson. I think she'll be the next big thing. I completely dig her folky/rock sound. Go to her page, listen to the song and start loving....

For my own purposes, I've been mapping out the lyrics. I don't have it all yet, hopefully someone can help me with the two lines that I can't seem to get right. I've had this song on repeat for two hours...love this song.

Midnight here and I’m all alone again,
Chainsmoking and I’m in my bed.
I just want to disappear here inside of me
And write of the hopelessness in my head.

“Whatcha doin’ with your life”, you ask me.
“Baby you’re not good enough for me”
“What’s the matter with you”, you keep asking
“Can you do better for me, better for me?
Can you do better for me, better for me?”

Got caught up and I’m walking out the door
The headphones on my beats of blood (not exactly sure what this line is...but this is as close as I can get)
Don’t you want to know how I’m doing and feeling here?
I don’t think you do somehow.

“Who the hell do you think you are?” you say
“Don’t you know that you got no rights?”
“Why are you living under my roof, you know?”
Dum daba da da da doom do de

There’s a million reasons why I’m feeling down today
Still I wonder if I’ll ever feel the same again.
Seen a million situations should put me in my place.
Guaranteed there’s a million more yet to come up in my face.

I’ve got to change my ways
Twenty four hour life crisis
Burning me up from the inside (once again, not exactly sure...but as close as I can tell)
I’ve got to find my way
Twenty four hour life crisis
Burning me up from the inside

Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here

Today, I’m taking control again
patch on my arm in the bright sunlight
There’s no way that I’m gonna go under now
Plenty of ways to make a wrong right
No more negative thinking around me,
I dont wanna live my life that way,
There’s to many good people to compensate
All my energy lost, all my energy

There’s a million reasons why I’ve been feeling down today
Still I wonder if I’ll ever feel the same again.
Seen a million situations should put me in my place.
Guaranteed there’s a million more yet to blow up in my face

I’ve got to change my ways
Twenty four hour life crisis
Burning me up from the inside
I’ve got to find my way
Twenty four hour life crisis
Burning me up from the inside

Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here, gotta get up from here,
I Gotta get up, I gotta get up from here
