"Paint Me Over" as written by Willie Hutch and Amerie Mi Marie Rogers....
Lonely days and lonely nights are waiting for me
But I gotta leave
From the day rise up until the night falls down
I'm losing myself, so I can't stay around

I'm still the girl that you met
You called me perfect then
But now you're changing
I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us
I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I hoped that I pleased you more

You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

I close my eyes and memorize the girl that I was
Before there was us
Hard to remember, it's been so long since she's been around
I gave up myself
And still I'd let you down

I'm still the girl that you met
You called me perfect then
But now you're changing
I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us
I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I wished that I pleased you more

You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

I must have fought for your heart
If it was mine from the start
Your love's conditional
Mine I let you have for free
You had a price to your love, and gladly I gave it up
And now there's nothing left
Because I let you change all of me

You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
