Versuri Alanis Morissette - This Grudge


  
Fourteen years  
Thirty minutes  
Fifteen seconds I've 
Held this grudge 
 
Eleven songs 
Four full journals 
Thoughts of punishment 
I've expended 
 
Not in contact 
Not a letter 
Such communication 
Telepathic 
You've been vilified 
Used as fodder 
You deserve a piece 
Of every record 
 
But who's it hurting now? 
Who's the one that's stuck? 
Who's it torturing now 
With an antique knot in her stomach? 
 
I want to be big and let go 
Of this grudge that's grown old 
All this time I've not known  
How to rest this bygone 
I wanna be soft and resolved 
Clean of slate and released 
I wanna forgive for the both of us 
 
Like an abandoned house 
Dusty covered 
Furniture 
Still intact 
If I visit it now 
Will I simply re-live it 
Somehow gratuitous 
 
But who's still aching now? 
Who's tired of her own voice? 
Who is it weighing down  
With no gift from time of said healing 
 
I want to be big and let go 
Of this grudge that's grown old 
All this time I've not known  
How to rest this bygone 
I wanna be soft and resolved 
Clean of slate and released 
I wanna forgive for the both of us 
 
Maybe as I cut the cord 
Veils will lift from my eyes 
Maybe as I lay this to rest 
Dead weight off my shoulders will rise 
 
Here I sit 
Much determined 
Ever ill-equipped 
To draw this curtain 
How this has entertained 
Validated 
And has served me well 
Ever the victim 
 
But who's done whining now? 
Who's ready to put down 
This load I've carried longer than I had cared to remember 
 
I want to be big and let go 
Of this grudge that's grown old 
For the life of me I've not known  
How to rest this bygone 
I wanna be soft and resolved 
Clean of slate and released 
I wanna forgive for the both of us.
