I Need Myself

by

Alice C. Bateman

Iíve waited too long for the right thing

To spoil it all with the wrong thing

Everybody loves me, why donít you?

Everybody loves me, canít you love me too?

 

The one I need right now is me

I need to be who I can be

I need to do the things I do

To do these things I donít need you

 

Iíve waited too long for the right thing

To spoil it all with the wrong thing

For all the pain, there will be gain

After the stress, Iím free again

 

I need myself, myself alone

A chance to see how I have grown

A chance to do the things I must

Before this body turns to dust
