Love Me for MeMature

Love Me for Me – Very old lyrics I finally re-wrote

What did you want from me?
I'm only another thing
Another person in this world
I could make myself look
Pretty to charm your heart
But where's the point?

If you don't love me for me
Well dear
I think its best you leave
There's more to me than skin
It's so paper-thin
When you look beneath it

Why do people judge so fast
Just on what you wear
And how you smile
It's so cruel
But I guess it's their lose

I'm tired of fitting your ideals
So worn out from being perfect me
It's not possible
You're illogical

If you don't love me for me
Well dear
I think its best you leave
There's more to me than skin
It's so paper-thin
When you look beneath it

Nothing I ever did seemed to mark up right
So I gave up on you
And all the things you wanted
You were just another fool
I'm sure I'll find another

I won't apologise for my neurotic tendencies
And I won't apologise for saying no too quick
I have my own standards
There's reasons for that
But you weren't really interested in my history
Were you?

Just a pretty face
A pretty voice
Is that all I was to you?
It's not right
You used me up
Like every other guy before you
You just went and proved
My every thought
And instinct
My every fear
You just went and upped the gear

If you don't love me for me
Well dear
I think its best you leave
There's more to me than skin
It's so paper-thin
When you look beneath it
How could you ignore
What was beneath it?

I don't care about the words your saying
I know I'm not perfect
I don't care
I'm another human being
And dear
I'm better than you'll ever be
And now I'm seeing clear as day
You never deserved someone like me

Note: I probably should've posted this in water, but because of the importance of the song to me I decided to post it here.

The End
