    Your love tortures my soul
    your love has me under control
    but I'm tired of loving you
    tired of losing my soul
    tired of being under control
    of man

    I am beginning to understand
    there is a better plan
    for my life
    without man
    without lies
    without pain
    without shame
    without your ruthless game

    I am beginning to know myself
    getting to know my real name
    WOMAN
    who brings truth not lies
    who brings joy not pain
    who brings honor not shame
    no connections to a ruthless game
    but a woman
    becoming to know her name
