Angel Olsen If It’s Alive, It Will Lyrics

My friend, you are unique but not always

Some stranger you don’t know has surely felt your pain

Some stranger out there might even own your name

And say all the things that you said

Your thoughts existing in someone else’s head

It’s true you are one of my favorite books to read

I have to thank you now

You’ve changed the way I think

And with each page I turn, there you are

And with each word I read

Rings true in my heart

While I was waiting

I found something I was missing

Might not have been a man, but well

We still could live on wishing

Please don’t confuse me

With your devastating stare-downs

I’ll hold your mirror

All you have to do is turn around

So you can see the face you make

When are giving out your soul

Are you the only one who doesn’t already know?

I used to think I was the only one

I used to think I was the only one

I used to think I was the only one

But I’ve learned quite a few things since then

I’ve learned that no one really is the only one

My friend, if it’s alive, it will do anything

And if it’s strong as well, believe it will go there

And if it’s full of love, know it is capable of

Emptying itself out at any point at all

Just know the height you reach is the distance you could fall

Know your own heart well

It’s the one that’s worth most of your time

Know your own heart well

You could be surprised at what you find

My friend, you are unique but not always

Some stranger out there has surely felt your pain

Some stranger you don’t know might even own your name

Has said all the things that you said

Thoughts existing in someone else’s head

I used to think I was the only one

I used to think I was the only one

I used to think I was the only one

But I’ve learned quite a few things since then

I’ve learned that no one ever really is the only one
