Alanis Morissette - Alanis Morissette - Sympathetic Character

I was afraid youd hit me if Id spoken up I was
Afraid of your physical strength I was afraid
Youd hit me below the belt I was afraid of your
Sucker punch I was afraid of your reducing me
I was afraid of your alcohol breath I was afraid
Of your complete disregard for me I was afraid
Of your temper I was afraid of handles being
Flown off of I was afraid of holes being punched
Into walls I was afraid of your testosterone

I have as much rage as you have
I have as much pain as you do
Ive lived as much hell as you have
And Ive kept mine bubbling under for you

You were my best friend
You were my lover
You were my mentor
You were my brother
You were my partner
You were my teacher
You were my very own sympathetic character

I was afraid of verbal daggers I was afraid of the
Calm before the storm I was afraid for my own
Bones I was afraid of your seduction I was afraid
Of your coersion I was afraid of your rejection
I was afraid of your initimidation I was afraid of
Your punichment I was afraid of your icy silences
I was afraid of your volume I was afraid of your
Manipulation I was afraid of your explosions

I have as much rage as you have
I have as much pain as you do
Ive lived as much hell as you have
And Ive kept mine bubbling under for you

Chorus
You were my keeper
You were my anchor
You were my family
You were my saviour
And therein lay the issue
And therein lay the problem
