“You’re Mine”

There Are Many Things That I Would Like To Say To You

He gathered me to him

He brought me to his secret place

He swore he would love me

He was lying and I should’ve known

But I was a child and I didn’t know


He was older so I believed him

When his pouting lips assured me

Than he’d take good care of me

And he didn’t he didn’t take care of me at all

He found me alone and he left me alone

Maybe that’s why I’m not broken

I’m different but I’m not changed

I promise I’ll be a woman one day

And I’ve already lost the feeling he gave me.

Nobody Could Take My Place

You told me

Loving me was

The kindest thing

You ever almost did

To your heart.

Funny, I think

Loving you was

The cruelest thing

I ever almost did

To my heart.

But then again

Ain’t nobody talking

Bout catching feelings.
