lyrics

I love myself enough to know I can't keep loving you
'Cause if I did, I'd hate myself and probably hate you, too.
I find myself obsessing over what else I could do
To make you see, make you see, make you see.

But love is not possession, love is not a fight.
Love is not convincing you you're wrong or I'm right
Love is letting go of what you want to hold so tight
Set it free, set it free, set it free.

I don't want to be saved, I just want to be happy.
I don't want to be perfect, I just want to be free.
And a love love love love love that treats me wrong
Ain't the kind of love that's right for me.

I love myself enough to know I shouldn't call you up
Friday night when I'm alone and maybe had too much.
But that don't mean I'm strong enough to not wish for your touch
I am weak, I am weak, I am weak.

'Cause loneliness is all I feel when no one is around
Most days I am fine but, some, I cannot push it down.
I guess that's why I'm calling you, though you can't hear a sound
I can't speak, I can't speak, I can't speak.

I don't want to be saved, I just want to be happy.
I don't want to be perfect, I just want to be free.
And a love love love love love that treats me wrong
Ain't the kind of love that's right for me.

I love myself enough to know that no one is to blame
Even though it hurts and it's so hard to sit with pain.
Anger is sad's bodyguard and so I will refrain
From attack, from attack, from attack

How, then, should I treat myself, if not how you treat me?
Grant myself forgiveness for my vulnerability
Tell myself I am enough, and I don't have to be
What I lack, what I lack, what I lack.

I don't want to be saved, I just want to be happy.
I don't want to be perfect, I just want to be free.
And a love love love love love that treats me wrong
Ain't the kind of love that's right for me.
