You can ask me to hold you close and tight;
without resistance, I would.
You can ask me to truly treat you right
and if that means ‘keep distance’, I could.
You can ask me to cover up my face,
though I’d suffer; a mask doesn’t feel good.
You can ask me to give up all my space.
I would give you even more if you say I should.

Please don’t ask so much that I look like a slave.
I would rather be dead than alive.
I try to fulfill all the tasks and behave,
but I need my free will to survive.

He is tempting us all with an apple,
but I won’t sell my soul to the devil.
And I don’t want to fall to his level by saying ‘you are wrong’.
I just can’t come along.

Will you miss me then?
Search your dreams and your heart
and if you kiss me then,
we’ll be never apart again.

You can ask me if I can hold you tighter;
there’s nothing I would rather do.
You can ask me to make the world brighter;
I’ll try, at least, by singing to you.

Demand me to share all my thoughts and my feelings;
I really have nothing to hide.
I don’t have the answers, do not know the meanings,
I just know it feels wrong inside.

He is tempting us all with an apple,
but I won’t sell my soul to the devil.
And I don’t want to fall to his level by saying ‘you are wrong’,
but can’t you see, he’s a fool with an apple!
And I fear to lose you to the devil.
And I don’t want to stoop to his level by saying ‘you are wrong’.
I just can’t come along.

Wauw! Wat PRACHTIG en precies! zoals ik het voel.
Dank voor het maken en delen…. Who is next?
