See today, I'm havin' one of them days where
I just don't wanna be bothered
But it seems like you can't understand that
Because it's your way or no way
But check this out, it's my way today

And I'm really, really sick and tired
If you steppin' into my little box
When I just don't wanna be bothered, okay?
So check this out

I've had my way
And I've had my share of ups and down
I've been in trouble
And I couldn't tell my ups from downs

I've been your baby
And I don't know why
It don't seem like that no more
Welcome to this new definition of love

It ain't all roses, hey
Flowers and posin', hey
Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding, hey

Said it ain't all roses, hey
Flowers and posin', hey
Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding, hey
Sometimes I need a hug

See, you, you, you just, you just wanna
Really, really, really push all my buttons
'Cause you Mr. Right and I'm Mrs. Wrong
But right now today, I feel like I'm
I'm the one gon' sing this song

I'ma be Mrs. Right today
It's my way or the highway
But with you there's just no gettin' around that
I gotta be bumpin' heads with you
What's up with that? Listen, see

I love my man
And I know my place, I know my worth
And I just can't stand
To see myself as I hurt

It's been a long time and I think that
I can get a little more love from you
I know some of ya'll
Go through it too 'cause

It ain't all roses, hey
Flowers and posin', hey
Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding, hey

Said it ain't all roses, hey
Flowers and posin', hey
Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding
Sometimes I need a hug

Sometimes I just wish you just
Put your arms around me
When I'm feelin' so, so, so very needy
But instead you just turn your back
And say, "Suck it up"

Oh, you don't know how I'm feelin' right now
If you knew how I feel on the inside
You wouldn't say suck it up
Now what the, 'cause

It ain't all roses, hey
Flowers and posin', hey
Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding, hey

Said it ain't all roses, hey
(Ain't all roses)
Flowers and posin', hey
(Flowers and posin')

Said it ain't all candy, hey
This love stuff is demanding
Sometimes I need a hug

Well, it ain't all roses, you know?
Everybody ask me how good it is
It's great, this love is great
But when you just a mess yourself
It ain't gon' be all roses

'Cause you just want your time, you wanna be selfish
You know, you don't want nobody messin' with you
You just wanna rip somebody's head off
When they tryin' to step to you with some
"Oh you need some help, oh, you need to figure it out

You figure it out, you figure it out
You go figure it out, you suck it up
