  1. If I Want To

From the recording Sparrows

I remember, in conversation, hearing someone tell someone else how they were feeling about something and the other person replied, "you shouldn't feel that way....". The truth is that we all feel what we feel even if we don't want to feel a certain way. So this song idea was inspired by that conversation I overheard. I still sometimes chastise myself for feeling things I wish I wouldn't feel but c'est la vie, as we say in French.

Lyrics

If I Want To
(c) 2003, Serina Jung

don't tell me what to do
I'm gonna love you if I want to
don't tell me how to feel
when it concerns you

no need to explain what I've come to know
a heartbeat too late
I don't need to be told what to do
I'm gonna love you if I want to
 
don't tell me what to say
I'm gonna love you anyway
don't tell me how to be
'cuz in the end I"ll be okay
 
come a little closer
come, dance with me this last time
don't say a word, not another word
 
don't tell me what to say
I'm gonna love you anyway
don't tell me what to do
I'm gonna love you if I want to
