Gotta Let it Breathe

heart cage

A man should support
And defend his girl
Treat her like she’s
Precious as a pearl
He should wake up
In the morning
And think of her
And love her and protect her
From this cold, cold world

But time’s gonna come
She’ll havta pursue
Her place in the world
Like we all want to
It hurts like hell
But it’s still true
Gotta let people do
What they gonna do

A woman is a treasure
But she ain’t no prize
She can’t be cloistered
From wayward eyes
A good loving man
Must realize
Gotta let love breathe
Or it’s gonna die
