Lyrics

Self Preservation
Lyrics by K M Brierley 2021

Jumped into our love with eyes wide shut
Blocking out the waves of doubt and fear
Thoughtless words from you that weren't clear cut
But enough to cause an atmosphere

Chorus:
The things you said that used to hurt so deep
Now barely crumble my foundation
The crazy thoughts have gone that stole my sleep
I'm calling this self preservation

Looks as though the sentence has been passed
This endless trial and retribution
Feel no malice now the die is cast
And grant you total absolution

Chorus:

Staring down the path of destiny
And I can feel excitement building
Claiming back my old identity
I had been lost but now I'm winning

Chorus

I'm calling this, I'm calling this, I'm calling this
Self Preservation
I'm calling this, I'm calling this, I'm calling this
Self Preservation
