This Time
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


This time
I won't show I'm vulnerable
This time
I won't give in first
This time
I will hold out with my love
This time
I will not be hurt

I'm gonna love myself
More than anyone else
I'm gonna treat me right
I'm gonna make you say
That you love me first
And you'll be the one with the most to lose tonight
This time

This time
I won't let my emotions rule my life
This time
I'm gonna keep my heart locked safe inside
This time
I'm gonna be my own best friend
This time
I'm gonna be the one

To win your love, your affection
To hide my fear of rejection
This time

I love "This Time" because Tracy sings of one being hurt the first time yet they have learned to put themselves first before anyone else the next time. Beautiful!
