Wanted

Going in blind

Make up my mind

Where is the one?

They told me about

 

Forgot my intentions 

Rose-colored glasses

I got distracted

Cause I was imagining

 

Her out the shadows 

I was so lost

Just wanted love

That wasn't enough

 

But I don't need lust

Cause I'm thinking of us

Trying to impress her

But I just messed up

 

He was successful

Caring and respectful

I was waiting for someone

Now I feel like no one

 

But I don't need trust

Cause I'm imagining us

Trying to please him

But I just freezed up

 

We were so happy

Overlooked a bad seed

Disappointment and denial

Abandonment, betrayal

 

You have permission 

To be loved, it's your mission

Communication and support

Honesty, stability

 

Mainstream lies

Often made me cry

Thought I'd rather die 

They were never true

 

Co-dependency is fire

Doubting is a liar

Independent persons

Can no longer worsen

 

Healthy relationships are these

Things we say we want

But often just ignore 

Take off those colored glasses 

And come and see what happens.

Our world
