about

A song about stickin to your guns, not giving up, and fighting for what you want, even if that means acting like a stubborn little child.

lyrics

STUBBORN:
Lyndy Butler

I don’t like being told what to do
But I don’t want to be in charge
Im easily distracted
Like when a bones been thrown
To the dogs in the junkyard
I clean up nice before supper
But still carry in some dirt
Give me what I want from the get go
And No one will get hurt

Cuz I don’t have to
And You can’t make me
Heed the words
of my inner stubborn child
I can hold my breath
Till my face turns blue
But Im never giving up on you
Im much to stubborn

Its cold over here on my side
You’re a kingsize world away
Not Like a toddler
with his nose in the corner
You can’t make me behave
Blessed are the peacemakers
And the ones that pacify
So you can give in
And let me win
Or you can
put up your dukes and fight

Cuz I don’t have to
And You can’t make me
Heed the words
of my inner stubborn child
I can hold my breath
Till my face turns blue
But Im never giving up on you
Im much to stubborn

Meet me, please meet me
Under the olive tree
Where we can forgive and forget
I’ll look into your eyes
And you can apologize
For making me so upset

Cuz I don’t have to
And You can’t make me
Heed the words
of my inner stubborn child
I can hold my breath
Till my face turns blue
But Im never giving up on you
Im much to stubborn

I don’t like being told what to do
But I don’t want to be in charge
Im easily distracted
Like when a bones been thrown
To the dogs in the junkyard
I clean up nice before supper
But still carry in some dirt
Give me what I want from the get go
And No one will get hurt

Cuz I don’t have to
And You can’t make me
Heed the words
of my inner stubborn child
I can hold my breath
Till my face turns blue
But Im never giving up on you
Im much to stubborn
