I'm standing on an open world
I've got to try so hard for myself
Now including the ones that I love
I call my family-ly

It's not hard when your focus is a beautiful girl
A brand new baby. She's a baby girl
And yeah, she is a cutie like her mommy
Uh, yes, yeah, she looks like her mommy

We both know who we are
And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before
If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take
I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak

I'm wondering why I'm sitting here alone again
Why you always crush me
Why it's never easy
Easy, easy, easy. It's not easy

This is you. This is me
You won't be a part of what we need to be
Not for me. For the future of us three
For our daughter, college, family
Sudden health emergencies
You think it's easy picking money off my money tree?

With two houses, both cars
I paid off your fucking credit card debt
Did you already forget?
Huh? You threat and threat and threat and threat and threat. Huh?
Just fucking leave. Find a man who will put up with you

We both know who we are
And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before
If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take
Yeah I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak

I can't help but think of how good you are with the baby daughter
Half the time a single mother
When I go away, it's so you can always stay home
And let your baby grow. Bring her up the right way
You never take it that way

We both know who we are
And I'm not changing
I need support, not a slap in the face
You have to trust me or I'm sure this will blow up in your face
I'm in love with such an angel and she doesn't even know
We've taught each other a thousand ways we don't even know

We both know who we are
And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before
If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take
I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak

I can't help but think of how good you are with the daughter
Half the time a single mother
When I go away, it's so you can always stay home
And let your baby grow. Bring her up the right way

He's the one who has his families future at heart
As you're the one who never wants a family apart
We both know that together we can only believe
That if we could be, there should be no reason to leave
