A song I wrote in class today. About people trying to change others in a relationship.
"Change Me"

From your eyes I can tell you're so unimpressed
With the way my hair looks, the way I dress
You keep trying to change the man I be
I Look in the mirror, it don't look like me
You keep trying to paint me like a canvass brush
But when you cut my hair I just had enough
I can't help the guy I am
My shoes look funny and my clothes ain't grand
I got my pants from the Salvation Army
And my shirt was a gift from my late Aunt Sally
Like a yin yang I wear a white and black sock
And when it's not on my head I keep my hat in a box

Those lifeless eyes of sweet Cecilia
What I wouldn't do you please ya
If I have to buy you with all I have
Make you smile and make you laugh
Even though you don't like my style
I'll change just to make you smile
Oh, sweet Cecilia

How can I forget the day we met
I was a blonde and you were a brunette
You didn't much like the look of my hair
It was far too short, you said, and far to fair
So you made me grow it out and dye it brown
I wore a smile to hide my frown
Ten days later and you had second thoughts
You became a blonde and cut your locks
All these mixed signals are driving me insane
I have to reinvent myself every time you change

Those lifeless eyes of sweet Cecilia
What I wouldn't do you please ya
If I have to buy you with all I have
Make you smile and make you laugh
Even though you don't like my style
I'll change just to make you smile
Oh, sweet Cecilia

Nine to five I slave for you
Bills stack up, overdue
And now I'm down to my very last cent
Locked out of my apartment cause I can't pay my rent
I had to break a window to get inside
Grabbed my things, hitched a ride
Standing at your door with rain on my shoes
When you wouldn't let me in I was quite confused
Now that I can't give you the toys you want
I'm yesterdays news in last weeks font
And for reasons I didn't understand
You went and found yourself a brand new man
The day you got me looking all just right
You said goodbye and I left that night

Those lifeless eyes of sweet Cecilia
What I wouldn't have done to please ya
I dressed up and played my part
Learned rules of verse and tried to sound smart
But it didn't mean a thing
When I couldn't buy a diamond ring
Oh, sweet Cecilia

When you broke my heart I lost my home
Hit to the streets and decided to roam
I made it as far as the next town over
And drank myself to sleep in a motel shower
When I woke the next morning I couldn't remember my name
How I got there or from where I came
If my hair was blonde or brown
And why my clothes made me look like a clown
I can't even recall the man I am
Before I met you and became a sham
All I know is he must have been some kind of fool
To ever hook up and put up with you
