Paint Me Over
by Amerie



Lonely days and lonely nights are waiting for me
But I gotta leave
From the day rise up until the night falls down
I'm losin' myself, so I can't stay around

I'm still the girl that you met, you called me perfect
But now you're changin' I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us, I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I thought that I would please you more

[Chorus]
You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

Oh Ohhh

I close my eyes and memorize the girl that I was
Before there was us
Hard to remember, it's been so long since she's been around
I gave up myself, and still
I let you down

I'm still the girl that you met, you called me perfect
But now you're changin' I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us, I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I thought that I would please you more

[Chorus]

Oh Ohh

I must have fought for your heart
If it was mine from the start
Your love's conditional
Mine I let you have for free
You had a price to your love, and gladly I gave it up
And now there's nothing left
Because I let you change all of me

[Chorus]

Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh
