about

Oftentimes, you don't realize you're in a bad relationship. You think if you just try harder, then your partner will be kinder to you, that the violence will stop, if you could just figure out his (many times changing) wishes, if you could just 'fix' the problem. There is a saying: you can't change anyone but yourself. Putting the oxygen mask on yourself will help you breathe clearly and focus on wise decision making.

lyrics

FIXIN' IT

I'm spendin' all my energy fixin it, fixin it,
spendin' all my energy fixin it fine
I'm spendin' all my energy fixin it, fixin it,
using all my energy you're suckin me dry.

You may have some potential, may be misunderstood...
but I've been searchin' years for a grain of good.
You tell me I'm the weaker one - can't make it on my own...
yet you're the one who's stagnant and I'm the one who's grown.

I'm spendin' all my energy fixin it, fixin it,
spendin' all my energy fixin it fine,
I'm spendin' all my energy fixin it, fixin it,
time to use my energy and get on with my life -

I wanna fly - I wanna soar -
but then you tell me I can't make it out that door.
And while I know that it's not true...
Still I been usin' up my "fly time" lovin' you...

I'm turning all my energy from fixin' it, fixin it,
turning all my energy to making me strong.
And when I'm flying high and free
over you, over you
You're free to drop your anvil, find your wings, and fly along.

You're free to drop your anvil -
Find your wings -
and fly along.
