You are selfish like a child
Attention is your middle name
It haunts me why this is so
I gotta let this go.
You need to have that attention
For your safety and my piece of mind
You keep my hands tied, I struggle free
To save your pride, and dignity.
Pride is something that ‘s hurtful to others
To always to have your own way
But I see reluctance on your part
Or I’m hopeful for a better day.
Hard to tell, with tears in my eyes
Why you can’t let things go
Let’s meet half way and happy be
But there’s that pride and dignity.
