Don't Touch My Hair

Don't Touch My Hair 

You can touch but you can't touch

see there is no right way to be me

It's IMPOSSIBLE

You can touch my skin but,

You can't touch my hair

You can touch my heart maybe my soul but, 

Don't touch my hair

Don't touch my hair

Unless you are the one to create it,

Don't touch my hair

Unless you are the one to care for it,

Don't touch my hair

Don't touc my hair

Because it carries the feelings I hold so,

Don't touch my hair

Don't touch my hair

Don't touch my hair

You'll never be originally me

My hair is my roots

How I control my mane 

Is how I control my life

FREELY

Always love what you have

What you have are roots

Roots are your strength

We all need it to get by in life

Never let anyone touch your hair

When I say don't touch my hair

Some think disrespect but no

I say don't touch my hair because

If I touched yours wouldn't all your feelings be let loose?
