Straight Jacket

This song is by Beverley Knight and appears on the album Affirmation (2004).

Why, why cant you be happy for me?
Now ive found someone who will put up with me.
Im no little girl im the woman you raised, I need some answers,
Youve got me faced with your predjudice,
was there something I missed when you told me you loved me?

Chourus:
You want me in your straight jacket you wont accept me
without it though you know its the one I've out grown,
You want me in your straight jacket, You'll never close me in
your brackets dont you realise your out on your own.
Yeah.

Please, please understand my choice, why you trying to stiffle
my voice. I sympathise with the way that you feel but time
stops for no one and your standing still and nothing grows,
under a shadow, I'm sorry, its not my story..

Chourus:
You want me in your straight jacket you wont accept me
without it though you know its the one I've out grown,
You want me in your straight jacket, you'll never close me in
your brackets dont you realise your out on your own.
Yeah.

Im sorry that my life didn't turn out as you meant, nothing is
an accident its all just in the script its something to accept,
I know you wont admit, you only hurt yourself, I cant do this
by myself.
Coz weve been banging on the walls,
on the same piece of the same wall at the same time,
for far too long now. And nothing lasts forever,
so what else is new? You held us all together, were all waiting for
..........You.......

Chourus: (X2)
You want me in your straight jacket you wont accept me
without it though you know its the one I've out grown,
You want me in your straight jacket, you'll never close me in
your brackets dont you realise your out on your own.
