One of these days I think I'll forget you,
forgot you, pretend the damn bogeyman shot ya!
Then one I these days I can go on without ya.
Until then I can't wait to see you, just dreaming of that kiss
and.. "OH" how I miss the way you..."OH My" the thought of it made me scream
and when I woke up from that dream
your memory it seemed.. to be laughing at me,
So I thought " Damn could it be you really don't love me"?
Are you just sipping and savoring my cream like you do a cup of coffee?
Hmmm, that laughs got me wondering.
Am I supposed to keep dreaming never to wake-up?
Then tell me why sleep only brings your touch?
And why when my eyes lay hold to days sunrise
the taste of salt from tears I find?
You gotsta' go or you gotsta' stay
cause loving you in dreams ain't enough these days.
So I choose you gotsta' go and yeah I know I've said it before,
but now I got what It takes to keep my doors closed.
You see last night I dreamt not of your touch or your kiss,
but me standing alone in pitch-black loneliness.
It was then I surmised its not you that I miss at all,
but the woman who was me strong, proud with head tall.
I woke-up much saner and planned the remainder of my life - minus you,
Let me make it much plainer.
When dawn came today the salt no longer was there
and I decided then no more could I bear
you in my life prancing in my REM like you own me
& then, in & out, come & go
giving me the respect of a $2 who'
& you still have the nerve to ask me to change!
Brother Man this is the hour I rebuke the devour
& take back my power & be about the 3 that mean most to me, myself & I.
When you asked for a "little some-some"
Did you really think I was that dumb
To give up again what I gave-up before,
Maybe YOU need to wake-up & step your ass out the door!
You see I'm cutting my own piece of the pie
& "Hell No" you ain't welcome to a crumb.
