Why

Why do you want to own me?
Why do you want to treat me like a pet?
Why do you want to own me?
Steal away my self-respect.
Why do you feel you need me?
Why do you feel you need me on my knees?
Why do you feel you need me?
Groveling and begging you

Chorus:
Please, won't you let me be myself?
Does my freedom threaten you so?
Insecure? You can't let go.
Please, won't you cut a little slack?
You've got my leash a little too tight.
Are you scared of what I just might not show?

Why do you want to shame me?
Why do you want to make me look like a fool?
Why do you want to shame me?
Really, must you be so cruel?
Why do you want to hurt me?
Why do you want to squeeze me 'til I bleed?
Why do you want to hurt me?
Bound and beaten, oh.

(Repeat Chorus)

Break:
Show that I'm not too miserable
Show that I'm not so vulnerable
Show that I'm not too weak to be alone?

(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Break:)
