I had a dream last night
A dream that it all went right
From day one, there you were
Out of the blue you cared about me
Where the hell did that come from?
I always thought I needed you
That’s why these dreams keep coming through
But all you are is a poison in my veins
Begging to be released, cause you can’t be bothered with me
Well news flash, I want you out, I’m not a damned Juliet
I won’t kill myself for you when you haven’t given anything yet.
I found him. He’s what I needed.
My shoulder for shedding tears
A thing I’ve looked for in you for all my 16 years
What you don’t understand is you’re the cause of each of them.
You’re not a father, everyone sees you as condemned.
You broke those laws you signed off on when you tore my mama’s flower
Well I’m not a little girl anymore, now I have the power.
Thank you for showing me what not to be
For being the example to teach me how to set myself free
I don’t need you in my life, I don’t want you, I won’t listen
I don’t care what Grandma says, she can just go on bitchin
This is my life now and he’s the one who’s stood by me
So let him be the real father-figure, just watch and you’ll see
All of the man that he is that you will never be.
