Respect

Music & Lyrics & Copyright: Ulla Lindstroem (KODA & NCB.)


You say that I have to respect you
You say that your feelings are hurt!
You say that with all that you've been through
you feel you've been treated like dirt.

You want me to take on your lifestyle
You want me to listen and learn
You should perhaps listen to me for a while
Respect isn't something you ask for and get on demand....
It's something you earn!

I've tried to be patient and caring
I've tried to make room for your ways
I've tried, but whenever I'm daring
to argue, we conflict for days.

The longer we keep these relations
The longer we make it a fight
The longer the same deviations
will part us like darkness and light.

So what if I changed and adapted your style?
Became what you want me to be?
I wonder if that would make peace for a while....
but then I just wouldn't be me!

Solo.

You want me to take on your lifestyle
You want me to listen and learn
You should perhaps listen to me for a while
Respect isn't something you ask for and get on demand....
It's something you earn!

Why did you come into my life for a start?
If all that I do make you mad?
Should diff'rent opinions just tear us apart?
Just thinking like that makes me sad!

You want me to take on your lifestyle
You want me to listen and learn
You should perhaps listen to me for a while
Respect isn't something you ask for and get on demand....
It's something you earn!
