"Love to be Loved"

Can’t stop won’t stop singing this song
No memories of perfect
Only of the storm
Not of the storm behind the mountains
Where my heart delights
But the one poured out of segregated fountains

Can’t know me won’t know me
Refusing to oblige
You want to leave me ignorant
Or maybe traumatized
You want to take my joy away
All work and no play

Can’t admit won’t admit
That you’re the one who can’t commit
You’ve told me lies
Empty promises
Avoided my cries
Left me bottomless

Can’t deny won’t deny
I love the way you perfectly lie
You know my potential
And yet you fail to believe
It’s only a matter of time before the caged bird spreads her wings
