Not the Illusion in Your Head
Do I? Do I really matter to you?
Am I really that important,
Because right now I don't feel like I do
Feels a little more like you're blindly self righteous or even a little arrogant
You said I'm special, called me different from the rest
But I am really not that different
Definitely not the illusion in your head
Some reflection of imaginary bewitchment
The more I find myself the less I have to lose
I believe, though, in a special kind of love
It's there, there for us to choose
And it takes a tremendous amount of trust
To believe a relationship is strong enough
Choosing anything else would simply be unjust
So I bare my heart and I share my soul
Believing that my feelings and my needs matter to you too
To be critical, demeaning, accusing, or demanding is never my goal
After all, if necessary, I want the same from you
Who said that sorting the chaff from the grain
Would always be an easy task
Or that it would happen free of pain?
It is, however, how a friendship lasts
You may feel I've done you wrong
But there's nothing now I can do about that
So here I am with my light of friendship on
Maybe someday you will find your way back
