I’ve been a slave,
A slave to love.
I’ve been blind,
Blinded to reality!
I have given up my dreams,
Settled because I didn’t want to lose you.
When I look back I see,
It’s me whose done most of the compromise
Because I didn’t want to rock the love boat.
I would have done anything for you
And I did.
Now my eyes are open.
I don’t wanna be a slave no more to love and passion.
I don’t want to give up my dreams,
Not for you, not for anybody!
It’s a new dawn.
Am breaking my shackles.
I’m breaking free of obligation and going with choice.
Don’t know if you’re coming with me,
The ball’s in your court.
But I ain’t bowing to your wishes no more,
I am massa to myself from here on out!
Because what’s love got to do with it?
