You need something I can’t give

I have something nobody wants

I wish I could be something you need

But you need to be far away from me

Please believe me when I say

It’s not you, it’s me

Our ambitions were made up of hot air

Not every story is boy meets girl and they conquer the world

Sometimes it’s meant to be engraved in pills and tablets,

who are we to go against God’s word?

I was born to harbor a disease that can’t be cured

You were made to shelter feelings you could never express

Ultimately we were shaped to be like balloons

As long as someone was around to hold us together we could co-exist

But once left alone, we would always drift apart
