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
