Do What You Gotta Do



Hey, I can understand
How it might be kinda hard for you
To love a man like me
I don't blame you much
For wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
That I loved you better than your own kin did
Right from the very start
It's my own fault what happens to my heart
'Cause I've always known you'd go

And do what you gotta do
My wild, sweet love
Though it may mean that I'll never kiss
Those sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
And if you find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back
And see me when you can

I know you feel bad
I know you feel so sad
They say that you don't treat me like you should
They have ways to make you feel no good
But they have no way of knowing
That I had my eyes wide open
Right from the very start
You never, never ever lied to me
The part of you they'll never see
Is the part you've shown

Go on and do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Thought it may mean that I'll never kiss
Those sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
If you find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back
And see me when you can
