He saw me alone in the grass
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.
