Maybe someday I'll be strong
Maybe it won't be long
I'll be the one who's tough
And you'll be the one who's got it rough
It won't be long and
Maybe I'll be real strong

Maybe I'll do things right
Oh, maybe I'll start tonight
But you'll learn to cry like me
And baby, let's just wait and see
Maybe I'll start tonight
And do things right

You'll control me, oh, so boldly
Rule me 'til I'm free
'Til the pain that shakes me
Finally makes me
Get up off of my knees
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Maybe I'll be as fast as you
Maybe I'll break hearts too
But I think that you'll slow down
When your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I'll break hearts
And be as fast as you

Uh

You'll control me, oh, so boldly
Rule me 'til I'm free
'Til the pain that shakes me
Finally makes me
Get up off of my knees
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Maybe I'll be as fast as you
Maybe I'll break hearts too
But I think that you'll slow down
When your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I'll break hearts
And be as fast as you
Maybe I'll break hearts
And be as fast as you
Oh, Sookie

Maybe someday I'll be strong
Maybe it won't be long
I'll be the one who's strong
You'll be the one that's gonna cry

You're gonna learn to cry like me
Baby, let's just wait and see
Yeah, maybe I'll be as fast as you
Maybe I'll break hearts too

    General Commentclassic dwight.

    i love the use of the word "maybe".

    he knows damn well that he won't do any of the things he says, but he's still making that empty threat knowing that she'll see right through it.
