Yes, you hurt me. 
Can't you just let it be?
You've done enough damage,
But I think I can manage.

You said you loved me,
And you made me feel glee. 
But all of that was a lie. 
You used me to just get by.

You played me to get over her. 
But it all passed by like a blur. 
But hey, I'm okay now. 
I feel nothing now. 

I know it's not you, it's me.
So just let it be.
Let me be me and you can be you. 
Even though I'll feel blue. 

Your words cut deeper than a knife,
But you continued on with your life.
But I  know it's not you, it's me. 
So please, leave me be.

Children, I come back today
To tell you a story of the long dark way
That I had to climb, that I had to know
In order that the race might live and grow.
Look at my face -- dark as the night --  
Yet shining like the sun with love's true light.
I am the dark girl who crossed the red sea
Carrying in my body the seed of the free.
I am the woman who worked in the field
Bringing the cotton and the corn to yield.
I am the one who labored as a slave,
Beaten and mistreated for the work that I gave --  
Children sold away from me, I'm husband sold, too.
No safety , no love, no respect was I due.

Three hundred years in the deepest South:
But God put a song and a prayer in my mouth .
God put a dream like steel in my soul.
Now, through my children, I'm reaching the goal.

Now, through my children, young and free,
I realized the blessing deed to me.
I couldn't read then. I couldn't write.
I had nothing, back there in the night.
Sometimes, the valley was filled with tears,
But I kept trudging on through the lonely years.
Sometimes, the road was hot with the sun,
But I had to keep on till my work was done:
I had to keep on! No stopping for me --  
I was the seed of the coming Free.
I nourished the dream that nothing could smother
Deep in my breast -- the ***** mother.
I had only hope then , but now through you,
Dark ones of today, my dreams must come true:
All you dark children in the world out there,
Remember my sweat, my pain, my despair.
Remember my years, heavy with sorrow --  
And make of those years a torch for tomorrow.
Make of my pass a road to the light
Out of the darkness, the ignorance, the night.
Lift high my banner out of the dust.
Stand like free men supporting my trust.
Believe in the right, let none push you back.
Remember the whip and the slaver's track.
Remember how the strong in struggle and strife
Still bar you the way, and deny you life --  
But march ever forward, breaking down bars.
Look ever upward at the sun and the stars.
Oh, my dark children, may my dreams and my prayers
Impel you forever up the great stairs --  
For I will be with you till no white brother
Dares keep down the children of the ***** Mother.

I miss you.
I miss your laugh.
Your giggle.
Your smile.

I need you.
I need you to live.
To breathe.
So I can have a life.

You are my life.
You're my everything and more.
I love you.
But you're not here.

You're over there,
With him.
And I can't help but hate him.
'Cause baby, he's got your attention.

I want your attention.
I want you.
I want you to be mine.
I want to be with you.

But I can't cause you aren't here.
I'll wait forever if I have to.
But baby, don't make me wait forever.

Pain Pain go away
Please don't come another day
Let me smile,
without the rain,
dry the tears,
install the drain.
Let me feel a rainbow come,
let me live without the glum.
Pain pain go away,
Please stay away another day,
Don't make me sorrow;
make me doubt.
Just let me hope,
and let me shout.
Let me smile,
without the rain,
dry the tears,
install the drain,
see me shine,
like a sun.
I plead you please,
since you had your turn and already won.
Pain pain go away,
Just for me,
to live another day.

No no, you can't pull it out of me, you see
But sometimes we have to let it be.
Even though you're feeling down, 
Don't you dare look at the ground.
I will love you with all of my heart, 
Even when things break apart.
I get things are hard at home, 
But it's like you live your life in a dome.
I'm sorry for the way you feel and have felt,
But sometimes you have to play what has been dealt.
Don't take this the wrong way,
Or you will pay.
I know I say this a lot although, 
I will love you through 
Thick and thin, no matter what you say
I can't pick a perfect day, 
Because everyday with you
Is my perfect day.
