You needn't be someone with whom I've played.
You needn't hold the highest values.
But when you're in your blues,
I'll be there to come to you,
I'll be there to give you hope.
As long as you understand what my life means to me,
I'll help you to find the rope
That pulls you out of the ditch.
That makes you strong within.
As long as you realise just
How and why I love my skin.
You may try to curse me for being this way.
It doesn't matter, I won't feel sorry.
But when you understand why I stay,
I'm with you. Don't worry.
I'll give you only what's due.
I won't throw alms to you, I promise.
Only give when I get what I seek.
Because that's what my code of life is.
