Alexis’ Tunes: The Gift

Updated: Apr 9




One way that clients and I communicate with one another is through music.


The song "the Gift" by Seether really hits home for me as a song that represents the anguish and shame that comes from feeling unwell. As ya listen, may you feel a greater understanding of either yourself or someone else. You are not alone,


The Gift


Hold me now, I need to feel relief

Like I never wanted anything

I suppose I'll let this go and find a reason I'll hold on to

I'm so ashamed of defeat

And I'm out of reason to believe in me

I'm out of trying to get by


I'm so afraid of the gift you give me

I don't belong here and I'm not well

I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living

Right on the wrong side of it all


I can't face myself when I wake up and look inside a mirror

I'm so ashamed of that thing

I suppose I'll let it go 'til I have something more to say for me

I'm so afraid of defeat

And I'm out of reason to believe in me

I'm out of trying to define


I'm so afraid of the gift you give me

I don't belong here and I'm not well

I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living

Right on the wrong side of it all


Hold me now, I need to feel complete

Like I matter to the one I need

I'm so afraid of the gift you give me

I don't belong here and I'm not well

I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living

Right on the wrong side of it all


Now I'm ashamed of this

I am so ashamed of this

Now I'm so ashamed of me

I am so ashamed of me
