Beverley KnightStraight Jacket

Why, why can't you be happy for me? Now I've found someone who'll put up with me I'm no little girl, I'm the woman you raised I need some answers, you got me fazed With your prejudice Was there something I missed When you told me you love me? You want me in your straight jacket You won't accept me without it though You know it's the one I've outgrown You want me in your straight jacket You'll never close me in your brackets Don't you realise you're out on your own? Please, please understand my choice Why you trying to stifle my voice? I sympathise with the way that you feel But time stops for no-one And you're standing still And nothing grows under a shadow I'm sorry, it's not my story You want me in your straight jacket You won't accept me without it though You know it's the one I've outgrown You want me in your straight jacket You'll never close me in your brackets Don't you realise you're out on your own? I'm sorry that my life didn't turn out as you meant Nothing is an accident It's all just in the script It's something to accept I know you won't admit You only hurt yourself I can't do this by myself 'Cause we've been banging our heads On the same piece of the same wall At the same time For far too long now And nothing lasts forever So what else is new? You held us all together We're all waiting for you You want me in your straight jacket You won't accept me without it though You know it's the one I've outgrown You want me in your straight jacket You'll never close me in your brackets Don't you realise you're out on your own? You want me in your straight jacket You won't accept me without it though You know it's the one I've outgrown You want me in your straight jacket You'll never close me in your brackets Don't you realise you're out on your own?
