Because I Love Me

"You can't say that."

"It's just because I love you."

 

Because you love me, you should listen to what I have to say

I am a voice, and I will be heard

Don't try to keep me quiet

I don't like the silence

 

"You can't do that."

"It's just because I love you"

 

Because you love me, you should respect my independence

I am strong, and I will stand on my own

Don't try to decide my decisions

I don't like the submission

 

"You can't be that."
"It's just because I love you."

 

Because you love me, you should respect my ambition

I have dreams, and I will achieve

Don't try to hold me back

I don't like the possession

 

"You can't wear that."

"It's just because I love you."

 

Because you love me, you should love me

I am unique, and I will be me

Don't try to make me change

I don't like the image

 

If you love me, you should know

I can say that

Because I will be heard

I can do that

Because I will stand on my own

I can be that

Because I will achieve

I can wear that

Because I will be me

 

Don't try to tell me I can't

I will

Because I love me too
