How many times must I repeat myself?
I have no more excuses: this is the way I live.
For everything I've done I take responsibility
And maybe someday this will all catch up to me.
Just like you said, "I'm so short-sighted, I can't see five years beyond"
Tell you what, in five years I'll be so far beyond this place.
So the last thing I need is your negativity
It sucks that we only agree to disagree.
The last thing I need is your negativity.
How many times must I prove myself to you?
Some days I really don't think I have.
I listen to what you say and follow your advice,
It seems you almost always end up right.
But this ain't playing at the future, this is how I spend my time:
How can you fault me for making every minute mine?
You know that I listen, but I hope you know I care.
If there's one thing you taught me, it's to be self aware,
These days I'm opening my eyes and learning to see
And the last thing I need is your negativity.
