Not One To Dumb Up For Love

Don't leave me in the cold,
With a freezing shoulder you throw.
To prove to everybody you are through.

I choose not to be as vicious,
With someone I still love.
Someone so quick to give,
A chill with attitude.

I want to give you what I wish but can't.
But you don't seem to understand...
I'm not the one,
To dumb up for your love!

I like that boldness you uphold!
An attraction,
That's a fact.
But suffering through your tantrums?
Keep that where it's at!

I'm not a coupon purchase.
What I give to you...
Is topnotch in the doing.
And you believe I'll discount...
What you are doing to me?
Uh-huh.
You will not find me behind you in line.

I want to give you what I wish but can't.
But you don't seem to understand...
I'm not the one,
To dumb up for your love!

I like that boldness you uphold!
An attraction,
That's a fact.
But suffering through your tantrums?
Keep that where it's at!
You will not find me behind you in line.

I'm not the one,
To dumb up for your love!

I'm not one...
To dumb up for love!
