FREE CEE brave does not equal a grave


You say my words are ugly because I drink too much
well listen little lady, if you've got a question i've got an answer
you may know how to feel but you don't how to touch
and you are the only thing that hurts almost as much as my cancer

you don't give a sh*t how many hours a day I stay in pain
you just want what you want and when you want it done
you treat me with nothing but contempt and disdain
and you are more heartless then anyone

I am now surrendering to whatever fate has to say
wherever providence leads me that's where i'm going to go
whether it tells me to run or hide away
i'll do what it tells me and go with the flow

wherever the river's current takes me i'll be prepared
wherever the ocean tide takes me i'll rides the waves
maybe you and I were never meant to be paired
because you don't act the way a true lover behaves

my blood runs and spills onto the floor
but that doesn't mean anything to someone like you
a woman unlike any i've ever met before
and quite frankly i'm tired of guessing what you're going to do

I have you on no leash yet you bark and you bite
I try to do things you'll appreciate
but your love of money over me just ain't right
and that's why i'm prepared to follow my fate

I can't get the help I need from you without begging on my knee
if I need an aspirin first I have to act like your slave 
it's as if your objective is to rid yourself of me
and I ain't going to allow no woman to drive me to my grave
