Can I love her like there is no tomorrow?
I know I filled her heart with sorrow,
But she always loved me like there was more to follow,
Even though I had to borrow,
Her love that is.
We both know my love came with a high interest rate,
But her love was never late,
She would love me at any rate.
Even though I was often never there to receive the payments,
You still left your love at the front doorstep of my heart,
But my mischievous behavior had me stuck in the basement.
I was spiritually bankrupt,
Another word for corrupt.
Your love was a one in a million,
But even my intentions wasn’t worth a dollar,
Or even a dime,
Nonetheless, I was busy chasing nickels,
How could I forget she was my diamond?
I constantly sold myself cheap to a pawn shop,
But she would always purchase me back?
It must have been disappointing to find my love on a rack,
With a for sale sign,
Why did she never resign.
I was a nice car with a broken engine,
Locked inside of a mental prison.
Despite my misbehavior,
She gave away a piece of her soul,
To bail me out of prison,
Her love was like a shovel
and her strength dug me out this hole,
Now my soul has arisen.
I could never repay.
But because of her,
I am not the man I was yesterday,
I was a boy once dressed in men clothing,
But thanks to her love I am growing,
Better yet, Now I am a Man
