christine was right, she showed me last night
when there's nothing to say, there's no need to say it
when there's something to give, don't run away
don't ever let it drain away

what i can't do is negotiate peace

my home is an extension of me

so please respect it
don't turn my home into a turf war, it will get loud and nasty and ugly, and i'm not going through this again
