The Lyrics

"Oh, Gloria, how did you become paralyzed? I was so worried!"
First I was afraid
That I was paralyzed
Kept thinking I might never live
With this crippling
But I spent oh so many seconds
Thinking how this happened here
Right now,
To me, why me, right this second?
And ow, my back
It will not move
I just walked in to find myself
With a sad look on my face
I should have not broke my spine
Just a few seconds ago
If I had known for just one second
It would paralyze me!

I want to go, and walk in the room
I can’t turn around now,
‘Cause I can’t move my whole body
Who could be the one who tried to hurt my stupid back?
I think I’ll crumble,
I think I’ll shut down and die
But, no not now
I’m paralyzed
As long as I know how to breathe
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got some of my life to live
I’ve got all my breaths to take
but I’m paralyzed
I’m paralyzed, yeah yeah

It took all the strength I had
Not to fall down
Kept trying hard to get
Through that stupid door
And I spent oh, so many seconds
Just feeling sorry for myself
I did cry
Now I can’t move my body
And you see me
Somebody still
I am a chained up little person
Just standing there
And so I felt like dropping in
And I just wanted to be free
Now I’m wondering to myself:
How will I eat?


I want to go, and walk in the room
I can’t turn around now,
‘Cause I can’t move my whole body
Who could be the one who tried to hurt my stupid back?
I think I’ll crumble,
I think I’ll shut down and die


But, no not now
I’m paralyzed
As long as I know how to breathe
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got some of my life to live
I’ve got all my breaths to take
but I’m paralyzed
I’m paralyzed, oh

I want to go, and walk in the room
I can’t turn around now,
‘Cause I can’t move my whole body
Who could be the one who tried to hurt my stupid back?
I think I’ll crumble,
I think I’ll shut down and die

But, no not now
I’m paralyzed
As long as I know how to breathe
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got some of my life to live
I’ve got all my breaths to take
but I’m paralyzed
I’m paralyzed
I’m paralyzed
