Do You Know What It's Like?

Liner Notes: 

For some reason I wanted to write a little about myself today. For years I didn't know this had a name-being an Empath. It isn't easy-because i so often
feel other's pain or distress. It is hard for me to be in large crowds, because I pick up too much. Or around some individuals.
Anyhow, I am trying to say that when I started writing, that is when I have become my happiest-and the most accepting of myself.


Do You Know What It's Like?
© 2019 Cindy Prince

Seems I was born different
Missed a place I couldn't see
Often felt an outcast
In my own family

More sensitive than most
This world seemed too mean
Seemed I played a part
In an untrue scene

Do you know what it's like
To pick up another's vibes
To feel someone else's pain?
Do you know how it is
To feel hers or his
At times I have felt insane

For years I tried to change
It was hard the way I cared
With time came self acceptance
When I found a way to share

When I first put pen to paper
When I realized I could write
It was then my pain lessened
It was then I felt alright

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Being an empath is hard work at times, it sounds! Glad you're able to write it out.

Very good lyrics and description of how it is to feel different. Many people can relate to your lyric Cindy.

Really good lyrics that explain really well how it is for you.

There are positives to this in songwriting, whereby you can feel what others feel, and then use that for inspiration.

Great writing as ever Cindy
