lyrics

What Am I To You?

You say I’m what you’re looking for
I say I’ve heard it all before
Every time you tell me how much you like my hair
Reaching out to touch like I’m some kind of animal
Is that what I am to you?

What am I to you?

And you say it’s a compliment
Is that what you really meant
So you’ve never had someone like me before
Looking at my shape like I’m some kind of novelty
Is that what I am to you?

What am I to you?
Am I worth the same as you?

And I thought we were moving on
All the time this was going on
Have you some idea what it feels like to hear from a friend
“Sorry but this time there’s no place for a black one”
Is that all I am to you?

What am I to you?
Am I worth the same as you?
Am I worth the same, the same as you?
