Beverley Knight – Straight Jacket lyrics
Why, why can't you be happy for me?
Now I've found someone who'll put up with me
I'm no little girl, I'm the woman you raised
I need some answers, you got me fazed
With your prejudice
Was there something I missed
When you told me you love me?

You want me in your straight jacket
You won't accept me without it though
You know it's the one I've outgrown
You want me in your straight jacket
You'll never close me in your brackets
Don't you realise you're out on your own?

Please, please understand my choice
Why you trying to stifle my voice?
I sympathise with the way that you feel
But time stops for no-one
And you're standing still
And nothing grows under a shadow
I'm sorry, it's not my story

You want me in your straight jacket
You won't accept me without it though
You know it's the one I've outgrown
You want me in your straight jacket
You'll never close me in your brackets
Don't you realise you're out on your own?

I'm sorry that my life didn't turn out as you meant
Nothing is an accident
It's all just in the script
It's something to accept
I know you won't admit
You only hurt yourself
I can't do this by myself

'Cause we've been banging our heads
On the same piece of the same wall
At the same time
For far too long now
And nothing lasts forever
So what else is new?
You held us all together
We're all waiting for you

You want me in your straight jacket
You won't accept me without it though
You know it's the one I've outgrown
You want me in your straight jacket
You'll never close me in your brackets
Don't you realise you're out on your own?

You want me in your straight jacket
You won't accept me without it though
You know it's the one I've outgrown
You want me in your straight jacket
You'll never close me in your brackets
Don't you realise you're out on your own?
