All of Me is Mine

If I’m still alone by now it’s by design.

I only own myself, but all of me is mine.

But it’s hard sometimes¬† where strangers

Offer you a dime.

I only own myself, but all of me is mine.

 

If I only drink water when some folks drink wine

I only own myself, but all of me is mine.

But it’s hard when the city windows dance

With candle shine.

I only own myself, but all of me is mine.

 

The price for pay for sunshine

Can sometimes be quite dear

When all you have to sell is youth

It’s hard to lose another year

My only forced submission

Has been the rape of time.

I only own myself, but all of me is mine.
