Society’s Curse

If I was a boy and you were a girl,
I won’t waste time and court you right away
I won’t give up, I’ll never stop
I’ll give to you all the contents of my heart

I’ll tell the whole world how much I love you,
I won’t hesitate to meet your parents too
I’ll walk you home and bring you roses,
I’ll sing you songs and write you verses

I wouldn’t care if you don’t return my affection,
I’ll still surrender to you all my emotions
I won’t ever want any other being
For you’re the only one worthy of my feeling

Yet I’m not a boy and you’re not a girl,
We live in this world where life is unfair,
Where boys do the courting and girls do the waiting
Or else I’d be judged, be called cheap and annoying
