    Dear F.T.-
    What do you want me to do?
    Who do you want me to be?
    You asked me to open up
    To tell you what’s on my mind
    It took awhile, but I did
    I told you my deepest secrets that lie in the crevices of my heart
    I cried tears that only existed in my pillow at night
    You asked me to settle down
    And I did
    I slipped once, but that was awhile ago
    I said I’m sorry, what else can I do?
    I can’t turn back the hands of time
    I’m sorry, but what is done is done…
    You can’t keep pushing it in my face, especially when
    I could have lied to you
    But out of respect, I told you the truth

    What do you want me to say?
    How should I act?
    You knew how my personality was b4 we took it here
    I can’t change the person I am to fit your needs
    Because I know, I’m not a bad person
    But you expect me to be perfect
    I have told you things I have never said b4
    I have done things I refused to do
    You know you have me wrapped around your finger
    And I am proud to have you in my life
    I am proud to say that I met you
    And I know you feel the same way…
    (Smile)…. You better…

    What do you want me to think?
    What do you want me to say?
    You know I don’t like to cry on the past or dream of the future
    I like to live in the moment
    So there won’t be any disappointment
    Not doubting us or nothing…
    But baby you never know, anything can happen
    I don’t want you to change; I don’t want you to be anything but yourself
    I don’t need you to tell me special things or lift me up
    I just want you to be real with me
    Stop keeping everything bottled up inside
    Because one day it’s going to explode
    And the thought of you not here drives me crazy
    I can’t even take it when we don’t talk for 5 hours
    I don’t want you to sugar coat any thing, do not front for me
    Because I will never do that for you
    I respect you and your personality and I expect you to feel the same

    How do we make this work?
    Tell me…
