Esperanza Spalding - Precious (Tavis Smiley) (Live) lyrics


Love me or leave me, but please don't decieve me
And say you'll love me how I am
You love the way I fit some ideal,
Not the real woman you've yet to understand
See, love ain't all heaven, and I am no angel
But I do the best I can

You always wanted something more from my body
And said you needed something more from my lovin'
But all you got was me and that's all that I can be,
I'm sorry if it let you down

Now it's no nice excuse, but all the magic was used up on trying to uphold
Some kind of tame, flattering persona that
Soon enough was getting real old
It takes more than pressure to change rock to diamond,
Now all you have is sand slipping through your fingers

You always wanted something more from my body,
And said you needed something more from my lovin'
But all you got was me and that's all that I can be,
I'm sorry if it let you down

But I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy
Tryin' to explain and being ashamed of things you think are wrong with me
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy
Tryin' to explain and being ashamed of what you think is wrong with me

Set you up, you say I set you up
Like I was different than what I am offering you now
Let you down, you say I let you down
And drove your heart around
Did you forget about all the love & the acceptance that you promised me too?

You always wanted something more from my body,
And said you needed something more from my lovin'
But all you got was me and that's all that I can be,
I'm sorry if it let you down
(x 2)

But I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy
Tryin' to explain and being ashamed of what you think is wrong with me
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy
Tryin' to explain and being ashamed of what you think is wrong with me, no
