You can break my bones
You can throw sticks and stones
You can take
Just about everything

You can take away my time
You can rule my mind
You can do
Just about anything

But you canít change me
I am still me
I will always be

You can hurt me today
You can take it all away
You can try
To change my head

You can change my ways
You can tell me what to say
You can leave me
Left for dead

But you canít change me
I am still me
I
Will always be

well, i always say dont mess with perfection...what could possibly need changing
this is SO you...loved it...
stalking you still,
your jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
