Nelson – What About Me? lyrics

You begged me to stop my fussin'
There's something that needs discussin'
You've been keeping inside you
And it's high time I know

There's no way to break it gently
When you told me forever
It doesn't mean it wasn't true at the time
But it's time for you to go

Am I readin' you right?
Did you just turn out the light at the end
Of our ten year Tunnel of Love?
Yeah, I know it's your hour of need-
But what about me?

I won't be the cage that holds you
I won't be the one who told you
That you're making a mistake...
No Baby... I've never been that kind

And if you're sayin' that I've confined you
By all means go but let me remind you
You can't change your world as easy
As changin' your mind.

What more do I have to give?
Guess I'll just have to live with the thought
My tears'll be setting you free
And I hope you find all you seek-
But what about me?

What do you want me to say?
Girl, you're walking away with
The only dream I ever believed.
You'll be livin' through leavin' us be
But what about me?

Well I know love don't come guaranteed-
But what about me?
