i am what i am
my past is my past
i stand tall
with my eyes wide open

judgement cast on circumstances
i can never change
you look past me and fire at my life
like a target at a shooting range
i can't be everything you want and more
but i'd rather be alone than be your whore

not sure what you are looking for
all you know is that it isn’t there
your mind’s been closed up for repairs
go complain to someone that cares

I can't expect you to understand
you're young inexperienced and just a man
put in the corner for way too long
sometimes it seems right but im usual wrong
I don’t know what you want from me
let me know when you and yourself agree

i just needed a friend
just needed a friend
early is the end
i just needed a friend...
my love doesn't pretend...
