I give up, you win
I surrender to your will
I let go, you win
Cause if I don’t you’re still

Gonna have the last say
Have the last word
Even if I throw a tantrum
It’s as if you haven’t heard

My petitions, my requests
Or my usual complaint
My tears don’t even move you
Nor holding my breath – faint

Or till I’m blue in the face
In hopes I’ll convince
You to move on my behalf
To grant my every wish

I know now I can’t resist you
As tempting as it may be
I can’t go against the grain,
I can’t go against me
