Maybe someday I'll be strong
Maybe it won't be long
I'll be the one who's tough
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
Maybe I'll start tonight
You'll learn to cry like me
Baby let's just wait and see
Maybe I'll start tonight
And do things right

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

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

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

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, sucker
Yeah, I'll be strong, it won't be long
I'll be the one who's tough
You'll be the one who's got it rough
You'll learn to cry like me
Baby let's just wait and see
Yeah, maybe I'll be 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.
