When you love somebody dearly
but the relationship’s estranged,
and you feel taken for granted
maybe it is time for a change.
Alter your own expectations
and take people for who they are.
You know nobody is perfect
and perhaps your opinion’s marred
by idealist perceptions
of what your connection should be.
it could be your own attitude
that’s causing all the misery.
Even true love wanes with pressure,
give your heart time to beat alone
Leave your trusted soul air to breathe
because a person’s never owned.
