I Need Me To Be For Me
Artist: Peter, Paul & Mary
Hey jess, i heard you talkin' on the telephone
And i wish that you could say it to my face
I know you think i've changed and i don't love you
But i've only reached another time and space.
I guess we've been avoiding total honesty
But we can't leave confrontation on the shelf
Though i know that love brought us together
In finding one another i almost lost myself.
I need me to be for me, to be free and to discover
I need me to be for me, and then we still can be for each other.
Who am i deprived of my identity
If i am not myself when we're apart
What is love that mirrors back no sense of me
What can i give to you now if it isn't my own heart?
And then we still can be for each other.
