471 True to Myself [19 April 2002]

do I change for you?
become your perfect woman
but never true to myself?
no, for I could never remain happy
I must stay true to me
laugh like no one can hear me
I will dance as if no one watches
cry without shame
I will be crazy
I will be human
mistakes I will make
promises I will break
but my love will never compromise
the person that I am
who people like as I am
for you, I will not change that
I may modify my lifestyle a bit
because I am motivated to do so
but never will I change who I am
not even your love
can make me
