You Must Love Me

 

Why should I spare your feelings
when no one spares mine?
Can you spare a feeling?....
'cause I'm surely losing mine.

Bruises on my wrist?
I cannot resist.
Lashes from your tongue
are like a serenading song.

You must love me.

Why should I hand you feeling
when it's not returned in kind?
You can't handle this feeling
'cause it's the bone rattling kind.
So, I placed all my feeling
under concrete skin.
Now, "nothing" 's the same as "something"
and only hand grenades get in.

Knocks upon my knees,
you're the only one for me.
Smack marks on my mouth,
I can't help but shout

YOU MUST LOVE ME.

Push me on the playground,
I will take you down.
Pull my ponytail,
you'll be the one to wail,

"YOU MUST LOVE ME.
YOU MUST LOVE ME.
YOU MUST LOVE ME."

Why should I spare your feelings
when no one spares mine?
Can you spare a feeling?...
'cause I'm surely losing mine.
