    I have cried the cold winter nights and all through summer heat
    Because I thought this was it….That I would never have to say
    I do again just once in a life time…..I want to be loved
    By a man who sees me as me….Now I don’t get that from you
    So why should I stay?
    For the love I have…..Have never been released
    For you pushed it away more then once....When I tried
    So why should I cry?…I know you don’t love me
    You never knew what you had in me
    Maybe I need therapy
    But I feel dayum good…reborn in my own
    My love for myself…..Gave me the strength
    To not cry anymore and hold my head up high
    So why should I cry now?
    I am hurting internally…..And you don’t see
    The pain have made me bitter
    For my heart have cried and suffered to long…..Time to let go
    For that is best for me………So I can grow into the woman
    I am meant to be…..The one you did not allow to show
    You know….The one that couldn’t voice her opinion
    But once I started…..You still didn’t listen
    So tell me now….Why should I cry?…..Why should I stay?
    So I ask why should I cry?
    You have not shown me all these years
    But now when I say I am leaving
    You want to mumble them words
    Saying you do when you don’t
    See I maybe be scared of change
    But my heart needs that once in a lifetime love
    So why should I stay?
    Why should I have to stay in something
    I have no love or need for?
    I need affection….I need understanding…..I need to be loved
    I want true love…..most of all I need that support
    I need someone who will be....When I can't
    I need for my love to balance me…and you don’t
    So why should I stay?
    I don’t need no more cold winter nights crying….
    Or them summer heat cries
    Its time to grow…
    So it wont hurt inside no more
