When I say give me space
I don’t mean to be mean
You believe, that I need people around
True, but all the same I need space even more.

To unmask the character before you
To believe in whom I am.
To laugh and cry alone.
To hug and rebuke me.
I need space.

To know that when I say yes,
It’s a firm yes.
If it is a no,
Then I have stood my ground.

Give me space
To be with me.
To love me.
To build me.

Space.
Self time!
