If you want some respect, then you gotta earn it!
Just standing there -
Pretending invincible and tall,
But with the look of an arrogant fool in your eyes,
Ain’t gonna help at all!
Be soft, but unbreakable!
If you want love, then you gotta learn it!
Learn what makes her happy,
What makes her sad,
What she likes,
What makes her mad.
Let her talk. And Listen!
If you want fire in your words, then you gotta burn it!
Burn it -
With the fuel in your mind,
With the air in your heart,
Avoid the smoke – keep it clean,
You know what I mean?
Don’t shy away,
The world is as much yours as theirs,
Live in it while you are here!
