I did as I was told,
I served and sang and dipped and bowed.
I was told that you love me with my faults and all
That you were the keeper of my soul.
And I, in my naivete believed that that which was outside of me,
That which I did not seek out to see in me-
the strength to face my destiny come what may.
In waiting for you , it withered away.
And now I have not you , nor me
I writhe and cry and rant and rave but now I see,
that I am the only one to set me free.
