I don't seem to get it,

the way things should be.

If I'm happy for you,

could you be happy for me?

Sometimes things just seem,

so perfectly wrong.

my whole life is a dream,

will I ever be strong?

I see what I want

but I can't seem to reach it.

I know it's right there

but yet I still only preach it.

I want more out of life

would it really be fair?

I'm somebody's wife

does anyone care?

I need to feel wanted and needed too

But what more would it take

and would it be you?

Please help me

from feeling so blue.
