Amerie - Paint Me Over Lyrics




[Verse 1]
Lonely days and lonely nights are waiting for me
But I gotta leave
From the day rise up until the night falls down
I'm losin myself, so I can't stay around

[Hook]
I'm still the girl that you met, you called me perfect
But now you're changin' I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us, I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I thought that I would please you more

[Chorus]
You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

Oh Ohhh

[Verse 2]
I close my eyes and memorize the girl that I was
Before there was us
Hard to remember, it's been so long since she's been around
I gave up myself, and still
I let you down

[Hook]
I'm still the girl that you met, you called me perfect
But now you're changin' I'm not good enough anymore
So I did it for us, I wanted to keep your love
You tried to mold me
And I thought that I would please you more

[Chorus]
You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

Oh Ohh

[Bridge]
I must have fought for your heart
If it was mine from the start
Your love's conditional
Mine I let you have for free
You had a price to your love, and gladly I gave it up
And now there's nothing left
Because I let you change all of me

[Chorus]
You want me to be what you want me to be
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over
I tried my best to be your everything
But you can't
Paint me over, you tried to paint me over

Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

  36. T P

  37. Ajay Cbaby

    Amerie has one of the most horrible voices in the industry hands down. If she was not pretty and mixed she would have never made it. I can only listen to her fast dance hits because those songs have great production. Her slow songs make me want to jump off a cliff. She should have stuck to doing dance anthems.

    Jnl5481

    Ajay Cbaby you sound like a dark skinned hater

    Jnl5481

    Ajay Cbaby Don't be a dark-skinned hater.

    Ľuboš Búžik

    R u serious? 😁😁 Amerie is vocal beast! Her harmonies are everything and it's not something you can just mix or mastered in studio! You need to add that extra something! And Amerie CAN sing smh...

    Richard Lomax

    Oh well, thanks for the view and comment.

    James Domonte

    She went to college, graduated, having a 4.0 for music/dance arts. What do you have?

  38. Beautifulstar24

    Such a heart-breaking song, but I love it how you need to love yourself enough to walk away from a relationship.
