Phoebe Ryan – Build Me Up Lyrics

Build Me Up by Phoebe Ryan


I’ve been under construction
And it’s taken too long
Before every decision
Every blueprint is wrong
I don’t wanna be precious
‘Cause I ain’t got the time
I wish I was a new person
I wish it’d happen overnight

Now I’m asking myself, asking myself
Why oh why does life keep breaking me down?
Asking myself, asking myself
Why oh why does life keep breaking me down?

When I’m low I need a friend
To build me up again, build me up again
The world is falling on my head
So build me up again, build me up again

I know all my dimensions
Are demented as hell
Need someone to correct them
‘Cause I wanna be well
Give me one hundred stories
Give me one hundred lies
My foundation is crooked
But I’m scraping the sky

Now I’m asking myself, asking myself
Why oh why does life keep breaking me down?
Asking myself, asking myself
Why oh why does life keep breaking me down?

When I’m low I need a friend
To build me up again, build me up again
The world is falling on my head
So build me up again, build me up again

Build me up again
Build me up again

When I’m low I need a friend
(To build me up again, build me up again)
The world is falling on my head
(So build me up again), build me up again

When I’m low I need a friend
To build me up again, build me up again
The world is falling on my head
So build me up again, build me up again

Build me up again
So build me up again, -gain, -gain
