Love and all that....

I know you’re lovin’ another man
But he doesn’t know what you’re holding back
He’s just company
But I’m everything you lack

What you hate about me
Is exactly what you love about him
You know what attracts you
And it’s what you can’t tame
You just have to let it happen
And your life will never be the same

Stop thinking about your mother
Or what your friends might say
It’s your life now
And we just lost another day
If you want to play pretend with him
Then I’ll walk away
But if you want what’s real
Then it’s next to me where you will lay

There’s a man
He’s walking free
He thought that’s how it should be
But love said no
That’s not about we
You have to compromise
And give away who you might be

Why can’t she let me
Be who I want to be
What’s the point of talking to me
If what you want
Is how you want me to be

If you can’t see
Then set yourself free
You think about me
But what’s the point supposed to be
When what you see
Is not how you want it to be?

I’m not a canvas
For you to paint
I’m a person
And not a saint
I want what you want
But not restraint
And not your complaint

I wonder why you think about it
Why do you want to control it
You just have to let me be me
And one day you will see
What I am
Is what you lived to be

A woman needs to let her man feel good about who he is and not try to change him. thought provoking hub.

Hello lovedoctor! I love saying that... thank you... if you want to change the man then pick another man... that's how I feel about it anyway... there is someone out there for each of us; maybe more than one... you just have to take you time... they will present themselves if you be yourself (and that doesn't mean being a princess)...
