I Am What You Want

I Am What You Want

written by: Magdalena Podobińska

 

I am what you want
I sing out of tune
But so what
I am what you want me to be
I hope so

I try all the time
I live and I die
All the time, all the time of my life
I don’t sigh
I don’t whine
I rise and I fall
I’m high and I’m low

I am what you taught me to be
Conscious of the traps
I can’t help falling into them
I am a little mouse
a beast of prey

I rise and I fall
I’m high and I’m low
All the time of my life
all the time
I don’t cheat
I’m not sweet
I’m found and I’m lost
I’m best and I’m worst
I live and I die
I rise and I fall
All the time of my life
all the time

I don’t cheat
I’m not sweet
I’m found and I’m lost
I’m best and I’m worst
All the time of my love
