I need to take me back from you.
I've wandered for too long.
My soul aches because it's torn in two,
And my heart sings an empty song.
I've found someone that loves me so,
I need something to give,
But you have taken all I own,
And I need you to forgive.
I know well that I did you wrong,
And caused you so much pain,
But I've hurt too, I've hurt so long,
And I want to feel again.
My heart is cold, my mind is faint,
But you can cure me now.
My smile is but layers of paint
Sculpted expertly how.
I need to take me back from you;
My heart, my soul, my face.
I deserve to be happy, too,
And this is the time and place.
I will always love you, dear,
But the time has come
For you to let go of the fear
And forgive me all in one.
I need to take me back from you
So I can give love to him.
You can give to her now, too.
You see, love, we both win.
