Lyrics
Man I can understand how it might be
Kinda hard for you to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
That I loved you better that your own kin did
From the very start it's my own fault
What happens to my heart
I've always known you'd go and do

Do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though I may never kiss those sweet lips again
Pay them no mind
Find that dappled dream of yours
And come on back and see me when you can
Though it makes you feel sad
And makes you feel so bad
They say you don't treat me like you should
They got ways to make you feel no good
They got no way to know
I had my eyes wide open from the very start
You never never never lied to me
The part of you that they'll never see
Is the part you've shown
Go on and do
Do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though I may never kiss those sweet lips again
Pay them no mind
Find that dappled dream of yours
And come on back and see me when you can
