THE CHOICE

Get it straight into your head
I'm not in such terms with you
So watch your tongue
Anyway what's your problem leave me in peace
You don't own my life, do you?
You just met me and you want to control my life
Who the heck do you think you are
Can't i have my way
I'm on my own so why worry

Why do i worry myself for nothing
Is it that am too altruistic?
I always think other people's interest are
more important than mine
I tell others to do the right things
and they tell me I'm worrying them
But if i don't tell them, they claim am a bad friend
Am i doing the wrong thing by telling them the right thing?
What else do they want me to say?

I will remain on my own with no fears
I now know how to live my life
In fact a really quite and peaceful one
I know I'm the only one who can help myself
The going would really get rough and tough
I know it would be hard for me
But i've got to and i will do it,no matter what
The only thing I've got to say is
"YOU NEVER KNOW HOW IMPORTANT SOMEONE
IS TO YOU UNTIL YOU REALLY LOSE THAT PERSON"
