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

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 your 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

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
