I Don't Want to Be Your Obligation!
I don't want to be your obligation
Just another mouth to feed
Nor do I want to be indebted to your good graces
I just simply want to be
I can't always be your source of satisfaction
And a burden is not my desire to be
But neither do I always have your desired reaction
I am not and will never be perfect, can't you see?
It may sound selfish, it may sound wrong
But if I'm not already what you need
Then dammit go write your own song
And let me just be me
……… ♥ ………
In lieu of a video. . .
Since I couldn't find a YouTube video to this song, which is now in my head after writing this, I found a link to listen to it instead.
So. . .if you're interested, it is Reba's "Everything That You Want".
If I don't keep you satisfied
You can't say that I haven't tried
And if I'm not what you want by now
For the life of me I can't see how
I'll ever be
Everything that you want me to be.
Came across a decent video of the song. . .

We're all a bunch of human hypocrites, I don't care who you are. The true hypocrite forgets that fact.
When love rings true, it lasts.
Sometimes it is not anything tangible, but an act that communicates love best. Take that into consideration when giving from the heart to a loved one. Also, recognize why love offered may not be felt.
