Macy Gray

I try to say goodbye and I choke
Try to walk away and I stumble...

Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here

I still
Light up like a candle burnin when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin everytime we touch

On How Life Is (1999)Edit

  • I try to say goodbye and I choke
    Try to walk away and I stumble
    Though I try to hide it, it's clear
    My world crumbles when you are not here
  • I saw a rainbow earlier today
    Lately those rainbows be comin' round like everyday
    Deep in the struggle I have found the beauty of me
    God is watchin' and the Devil finally let me be
    Here in this moment to myself
    • "A Moment to Myself" (co-written with Jeremy Ruzumna, Miles Tackett. Mark Morales, and Damon Wimbley)
  • I still
    Light up like a candle burnin when he calls me up
    I still
    Melt down like a candle burnin everytime we touch
    Oh say what you will
    He does me wrong and I should be gone
    I still
    Be lovin you baby and it's much too much

The Trouble with Being Myself (2003)Edit

If I could be Jesus for just a day and have it my way, if I could be perfect, like the light — Jesus for a night and have it my way...
  • Run the creature has come, there's no cover for you no prize
    When you've won.
    • "Jesus For A Day" (co-written with Jeremy Ruzumna, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Bobby Ross Avila, Issiah J. Avila)
  • Be. If I could be Jesus for just a day and have it my way, if I
    Could be perfect, like the light — Jesus for a night and have
    It my way — if I could be

    Atop my mountain a phenomenon — when I walk on water I am
    Complete, at peace and I'd make it so you'd be just like me.
