I don’t live my life by technicalities or semantics
You either want me or you don’t
I don’t have to be told, I know I have high morals
I don’t coast in the grey area
I know just where I stand
You got to stand for something.
Tell me what do you stand for?
Little girls don’t wait for ignorance
They don’t hold out for carelessness
When they grow up sometimes that hope doesn’t die
Sometimes it grows with them
Hoping to beat the odds
To be more than a statistic
Does that appeal to you?
I can’t listen to the words “trust
me” without cringing
Words have never been enough
It’s not all about what I need to hear
Sometimes want is overbearing
I guess I just want you to be near
Show me that you’re around and present
Can you give me it all to me without looking like it killed you?
