After a While - Bif Naked

I want you to know I needed time to rest.
And, I must confess to you.
I am hardest on myself.
All I ever wanted was to try to do my best.
And I want tell the truth now.
I am unwell.

After awhile, I just lay down.
After awhile, my chin ain't up.
Bare-knuckle fighter in the third round.
After awhile, it's all bad luck.

[Chorus]
Save me. Save me from myself.
Drowning in the wishing well.
I will try to rise above.
I am never good enough.

I want you to know that I needed time alone.
Don't you try to tell me that you really didn't know.
All I ever wanted was to never leave this bed.
And I want to tell the truth - my smile is just pretend.

After awhile, I got sleepy.
After awhile, safety lasted.
After awhile, disenchanted.
After awhile, I just fasted.

[Chorus]

After awhile, I just lay down.
After awhile, my chin ain't up.
Bare-knuckle fighter in the third round.
After awhile, it's all bad luck.

[Chorus]

I'm no good for you.
