Got something I need to say That might be good for you, 'Cause when I go away It's gonna make you blue, It might not be my place, Don't mean no disrespect, But when I see your face I start to recollect, Before you start to bitch, Before you start to cry, Before I throw this switch Just let me tell you why... Hold it a minute, you remind me of a younger me Back before I discovered what it cost to be free When I think of all that brought us to a screeching halt She never said it was all my fault, Stand there and tell me exactly what you want me to be Did you ever really think you could change me? And when you're sitting all alone at night, Don't go thinking you're the only one who knows what's right, Just take it. Take it with a grain of salt. It took so many years To bring me to this place, And do you really think It's just a fall from grace? Just listen to yourself Who says that I'm the one You need to lift you up and keep you in the sun? I told you what I was, You called it all a lie, And tried to pull apart A love I won't deny... Hold it a minute, you remind me of a younger me Back before I discovered what it costs to be free When I think of all it took to make me love myself I'll never ever lay it on a shelf, Stand there and tell me just exactly what makes you believe That I never cared, or that I wanted to leave? And when you're feeling all alone inside, Don't go thinking you're the only one who ever cried, Just take it. Take it with a grain of salt. And in spite of all the things I say, Don't go thinking that I'm happy it turned out this way, Just take it. Take it with a grain of salt.
