Got to be yourself
Don't belong to no one
Belonging to someone
    isn't loving someone
You are yourself
yourself is what you were meant to be
    You can love others
But when you give yourself away
You put love away
For the sake of security
Your security becomes your jail cell
Look at you
Aren't you a perfect picture
Nailed to the wall
    Everyone can see you
    But no body feels you
    You just hang there
    As every Possibility goes by
It's frustration and impatience with your husband's way
Hey, what happened to the love
    You gave it away, for security
