Same Things

Written By: Mary Niewola

We wanted the same things for a moment
But the situation was loaded
Suddenly I didn’t know where we were going
Suddenly the eyes that desired me were raging

And man I think I lied as much as you did
But that’s what made it perfect for a while
I knew that we would crumble just like you did
But that’s what made me give it all I had

Mama had to tell me over a million times
Never doubt the truth inside your heart

Baby girl you are a pearl and you know it
And nobody else can make you shine you gotta own it
And if anybody tries to bring you down you better promise
Promise me you’ll run away, run from it

You wanted to change me into a trophy
When I was already a gem you didn’t see
Suddenly my tear filled eyes started glistening
Suddenly I knew the truth you were avoiding

And man I knew my value more than you did
That’s what made me fight you every day
Man you wanted to take me for granted
That’s what made me finally run away

Mama had to tell me over a million times
Never doubt the truth inside your heart

Baby girl you are a pearl and you know it
And nobody else can make you shine you gotta own it
And if anybody tries to bring you down you better promise
Promise me you’ll run away, run from it

I’m still growing because of you And I’m still better after you
And now I’m coming back to the basics Remember one thing never changes
I will never believe I’m worthless Because the truth is I am priceless

Baby girl you are a pearl and you know it
And nobody else can make you shine you gotta own it
And if anybody tries to bring you down you better promise
Promise me you’ll run away, run from it
