Warren Haynes Is It Me Or You

Tears on the inside of your face

But none on the outside

No pain could penetrate the callouses

Palaces you’ve built from the ground floor

Show only the dark side of your past

So long since you’ve tried

To replace the wooden mask that

Hangs around your neck

Like some token of war

A survivor

Is what you call yourself

But have you looked through

The eyes of someone else?

Is it me or you that’s killing you, baby?

Is it me or you that’s trying to hang on?

Like a bullet dancing in your breast

You hide the answer

And point it at my chest

With your aiming eyes

The same eyes that used to be my window

The denier

Never seeking help

But has it grown too late to help yourself?

Is it me or you that’s killing you, baby?

Is it me or you that’s trying to hang on?

You say “Nobody wants to save you

Nothing in this world could save you”

But maybe I could save you if only I knew

Is it me or you?

Tears on the inside of your face

But none on the outside

No pain could penetrate the callouses

Palaces you’ve built from the ground floor
