The Opposite of Me

  • All that she wants is the honesty
    All that she wants is the opposite of me
    All that she wants is someone who doesn't hurt
    All that she wants is the action, not the words
    Oh, the action, not the words
    It's the action, not the words

    If she ever knew that I would never be the man
    I promised I would be
    If she ever knew that
    I was gonna be running around, she would've never stayed
    All that she needs is a good man
    All that she needs is another try
    All that she needs is something that
    I can't give her I just can't give her
    'Cause all that she wants is the honesty
    All that she wants is the opposite of me
    All that she wants is someone who doesn't hurt
    All that she wants is the action, not the words

    The action, not the words
    Oh the action, not the words
    The action, not the words
    Oh the action, not the words

    All that she needed was a true friend
    All that she received was a troubled man
    And she couldn't be with something like her dad
    And I just rewarded he with my drunken rants
    And all that she needs is a good man
    All that she needs is another try
    All that she needs is something that
    I couldn't give her I just can't give her
    'Cause all that she wants is the honesty
    All that she wants is the opposite of me
    All that she wants is someone who doesn't hurt
    All that she wants is the action, not the words

    Oh the action, not the words
    It's the action, not the words
    Oh the action, not the words
    It's the action, not the wordsWriter/s: ROBIN A. THICKE
