Rachael Yamagata I Don't Want To Be Your Mother Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2012 11:00:00 AM

I don't want to be your mother
There's two sides to each other
You gotta meet me halfway
Won't you let me be your lover?

Don't be no lone survivor
I'm not going anywhere
I'm just trying to tell you how I feel
This one-sided love affair

How do I get the man in you to see
I'm so much more than the mother in me

I don't want to be your savior
Forgive your bad behavior
You gotta meet me halfway
'Cause there's so much to discover

Don't be no lone survivor
I won't leave you in the cold
I'll be standing right beside you
When you're feeling all alone

The only way to set yourself free
Is letting go of the savior in me

Baby, don't you shut me out
Baby, don't shut down on me
I'm not going anywhere
I'm not going anywhere
I only want to bring you back to me

Baby, please don't shut me down
Time won't bring me back to you
I'd be lying to myself
I'd be lying to myself
And that's the only thing I cannot do

I want to be your sweetheart
I want to be your lady
Oh, I want to get swept away
Let me cry for a change

Don't need no lone survivor
I need someone by my side
We don't have to make it perfect
Oh, but maybe we could try

Love me for the woman that I am
And I will love you for being just a man
Love me for the woman that I am
And I will love you for being my man
