We fell in love

On the first night that we met

Together

We've been happy

I have very few regrets

The ordinary problems

Have not been hard to face

But lately little changes

Have been slowly taking place

You're always finding something

Is wrong in what I do

But you can't rearrange my life

Because it pleases you



(*) You've got lo love me

For what I am

For simply being me

Don't love me

For what you intend

Or hope that I will be

And if you're only using me

To feed your fantasy

You're really not in love

So let me go

I must be free



If what you want

Isn't natural for me

I won't pretend to keep you

What I am I have to be

The picture of perfection

Is only on your mind

For all your expectations

Love can never be designed

We either take each other

For everything we are

Or leave the life

We've made behind

And make another start



Repeat (*)



And if you're only using me

To feed your fantasy

You're really not in love

So let me go

I must be free



You're really not in love

So let me go

I must be free
