Help Yourself
Amy Winehouse Lyrics


When I walk in your shoes
I understand a man confused
There must have been but I don't care
I feel the way your soul does there

Darling they empathize
Looking through your bloodshot eyes
And I know you you're so frustrated
Above we all become what we once hated
Be slight nobody can be that wise

I can't help you if you won't help yourself
No I can't help you if you don't help yourself
You can only get so much from someone yeah
You can get so much from me
I can't help you if you won't help yourself

You've got the degree in philosophy
So you think you're cleverer than me
('Cause you so smart)
But I'm not just some drama queen

(Drama queen)
'Cause it's where you're at not where you've been
So what do you expect from me
(What do you want)

To hold your head above the sea
(Keep you high and dry)
And carry you even though you're bigger
'Cause don't you know you crush my tiny figure

And anyway we're still so young
(Yeah I'm so young)
And this isn't yet the day

I can't help you if you won't help yourself
No I can't help you if you don't help yourself
(You won't help yourself)
You can only get so much from someone yeah
I can't help you if you won't help yourself

You might be twenty-five but in my mind
I see you at sixteen years oh most of the time
And I'm, I'm just a child and you're full grown
And no I'm nothing like I've ever known yeah
You are like nothing that I ever knew

When I walk in your shoes
I understand a man confused
They much too big, but I don't care
I feel the weight your shoulders bear
Darling they empathize
Looking through your bloodshot eyes
And I know you, you're so frustrated
Above we all become what we once hated
Besides, nobody can be that wise

I can't help you if you won't help yourself
(Help yourself, help yourself)
No, I can't help you if you don't help yourself
(Help yourself, no no no)
You can only get so much from someone else
(Get so much from, yeah)
I can't help you if you won't help yourself
(You can't help yourself)

You got a degree in philosophy (philosophy)
So, you think you're cleverer than me ('cause you're so smart)
But, I'm not just some drama queen (drama queen)
'Cause it's where you're at, not where you've been
So, what do you expect from me (what do you want)
To hold your head above the sea (keep you high and dry)
And carry you even though you're bigger
'Cause don't you know you crush my tiny figure
And anyway, we're still so young (yeah, I'm so young)
And this isn't yesterday

I can't help you if you won't help yourself
(I can't help you)
No, I can't help you if you don't help yourself
(You won't help yourself)
You can only get so much from someone else
I can't help you if you won't help yourself

You might be twenty-five but in my mind
I see you at sixteen years oh most of the time
And I'm, I'm just a child and you're full grown
And no I'm nothing like I've ever known yeah
You are like nothing that I ever knew

I can't find accurate lyrics for this one I'm currently obsessed with...

Here's what I got:

Amy was a fucking lyrical genius... :D

Help Yourself
By Amy Winehouse
[Lyrics Interpreted by G.Scott Raffield]

When I walk, in your shoes
I understand, a man confused
They're much too big, but I don’t care
I feel the weight, your shoulder’s bear

And now I really empathize, looking through yo’ bloodshot eyes
And I know you, you so frustrated
But we all become what we once hated
Besides, nobody can be that wise

I can’t help you, If you won’t help yourself [Help Yourself]
No I can’t help you, if you don’t help yourself [Help Yo’ self]
You can only get so much from someone else [I can get so much from you]
I can’t help you, if you won’t help yourself

You got a degree, in philosophy
So you think you cleverer than me [‘Cause you so smart]
But I’m not just, some drama queen
‘Cause it’s where you at, not where you been
So what do you, expect from me
To hold your head, above the sea [To keep you high & dry]
And carry you, even though you’re bigger
‘Cause don’tchu know, you crush my tiny figure
And anyway, we’re still so young [Yeah I’m so young]
And this isn’t Yesterday

I can’t help you, if you won’t, help yourself [I can’t help you]
No I can’t help you, if you don’t help yourself

It won’t help yo’self
You can only get so much from someone else
I can’t help you, if you won’t help yourself

You might be twenty-five, but in my mind
I see you as sixteen years all most the time
And I’m just a child, and you full grown
Then there was like nothing that I’ve ever known
You, unlike nothing that I ever knew

blahblah blahblahblah I’m laying here in my bed in 2020 during a pandemic, sober at 2am and appreciating Amy’s old music. Asking why she had to be taken so soon :(

This song is so uniquely beautiful, there will never be quite another like Amy.

TheRealKeshia2

I absolutely adored her and still do. I love her music. This song is so cleverly classic I have been humming it the past few days finally turned it on ❤️

Akindele Campbell

Its good, buts its not unique if you know Soul/R&B Music. And there will be another Amy, there's been many before her.

Alexis Byrd

100% I can't believe I can't see her in concert
