all my life I never had a chance
don’t you think I knew about all your pretty girlfriends?
but I waited for you, gave you time to decide,
but you never saw it from anybody else’s side
so I packed up my things and I faced up my doubts
you know I think I will grow my hair back out -
nevermind what you think,
nevermind what you like,
I’ll take it out to the streets
for somebody else to admire.
maybe time will tell you
why I got so much hell to sell you
please, please understand me
you can’t just dance around me
maybe your work will love you
when I’m just not there to hold you
maybe your pride can be your companion
but I just won’t be there to stand for it
not one more minute will I stand for it.
