Your way or the Highway

By Bruce Clifford

It's not like I don't try
Can I speak my mind
If I make choice
Why do you have to voice
And threaten me until I take your side

It's not like I'm selfish
But I have a mind of my own
If I take a stand
Why don't you understand
It has to be your way for things to work in our plans

It's your way or the highway
There's no middle ground with you
It's your way or the highway
I can't live with your controlling attitude

It's your way, but never my way
Everything can't always be so one sided
It's your way or the highway
Maybe for my entire life I have been so misguided

It's not like I don't try
But when I speak my mind
You get uptight
We start to fight
Nothing ever seems right

It's not like I don't try
Can I speak my mind
If I make choice
Why do you have to voice
And threaten me until I take your side

It's your way or the highway
Maybe the highway is the road I should take
If you can never see things my way
Then something inside us is going to break

6/21/10 Bruce Clifford
