Material Girl


Able says it all - Material Girl

that's what I want to be

I'm nobodies material girl,

debating on whether that's okay with me.

One day at a time, I keep my sins on the line

and question myself.

Do I deserve to be a "One and only"

do I deserve the feelings

do I deserve everything he will be...

if he ever comes to me?

I don't want a knight in shining armor 

I want someone as dillusioned as me.

I want to tell him about my life - 

usually it makes them all think twice.

I don't want a perfect somebody

I want somebody that can relate to me.

When I tell them what I've done,

I don't want to be judged.

I don't want to be questioned, or second guessed.

Simply for them to say, "Baby, nothing you do makes you less."

So I question myself... 

A material girl...

Is that really what I want to be?
