Well I was once bound and determined
but now that's been replaced by fear in being
bound to your determination to keep me here
I've been your mother, friend, lover, sister,
can you tell me what else is left?
And I've euphemised shouts with whispers & 'til it's
worried me to death.
And I've tried hard enough.
Don't you think I've tried hard enough?
If I were standing at the crossroads
and had to choose your life or mine
If I chose my own existence
would you till label it a crime?
When you can understand my pleading
maybe I can tolerate you cries.
But you will never see these fears glisten wet in my eyes.
And these ties that bind my soul no,
they're not blessed to me at all.
I'm tired of lying in this position
but I can't recover from this fall.
You tell me if I stay or if I go
freedom's not an option you give
Well, your infirmity is justifiable,
it's you sickness I can't forgive.
And haven't I tried hard enough?
Now I stand before my jury
Yes I've been tried hard enough.
