Going in blind

Make up my mind

Where is the one?

They told me about


Forgot my intentions 

Rose-colored glasses

I got distracted

Cause I was imagining


Her out the shadows 

I was so lost

Just wanted love

That wasn't enough


But I don't need lust

Cause I'm thinking of us

Trying to impress her

But I just messed up


He was successful

Caring and respectful

I was waiting for someone

Now I feel like no one


But I don't need trust

Cause I'm imagining us

Trying to please him

But I just freezed up


We were so happy

Overlooked a bad seed

Disappointment and denial

Abandonment, betrayal


You have permission 

To be loved, it's your mission

Communication and support

Honesty, stability


Mainstream lies

Often made me cry

Thought I'd rather die 

They were never true


Co-dependency is fire

Doubting is a liar

Independent persons

Can no longer worsen


Healthy relationships are these

Things we say we want

But often just ignore 

Take off those colored glasses 

And come and see what happens.
