Wasting Your Time

I’m wearing my heart on a sleeve,
Common analogy.
Really, my heart is in my pocket,
Under a locket.
And you can’t open it without a key,
Only created for the worthy.

Because I’m a pearl in the midst of swine,
And what I got it ain’t mine.
It belongs to One who gives me value,
And if you want me you got Him to go through.
He holds the key to my heart, my life, my destiny.
So if you would please, leave me be, unless He deems you worthy.

You’re wasting your money and your time.
My love you can’t buy.
I’m not for sale and I’m not showpiece,
So get your lustful thoughts off me please.

Because I’m a pearl in the midst of swine,

So if you would please, leave me be, unless He deems you worthy.

I hope you notice I don’t dress like those girls,
Who’ve lost their value and like to show off damaged pearls.
No, I’m a pearl of great price.
You think I’ll lessen my value, let me give you some advice.

You want a girl who will strut her stuff off to the world?
Who acts with no value
And doesn’t cost you?
Yeah, she may be free,
May even look lovely.
Show her off to your friends.
“Hey, look, my new trophy!”
But then there’ll come a time,
You’ll realize beauty doesn’t satisfy that empty void inside.
Drop your trophy off on the side of the road.
It’s not like you’ve been told.
You thought she would make you happy,
A pretty face and a half-naked body.
Feel bad for dropping her off like that.
Go back to find she’s already found someone else.
Someone to use her and someone she’ll use herself.
She’s a processed damaged good, someone nice to look at,
With no attachments.
But I’m not falling under that category.
You’re never gonna use me.
I’m not here to entertain your lustful thoughts.
In Satan’s nets, I’m not here to get you caught.
I know my value,
Wanna protect you,
Protect myself,
And I’m to be saved for someone else.

So if you would please, leave me be, unless He deems you worthy.

So just stop wasting your time,
Your silly songs that rhyme.
You won’t get anything from me,
Unless you’re the one He deems worthy.
And if you are, I’m still waiting for my wedding ring.
