I know you’re settling
Settling for less
I know 'cuz I’ve been there before
Ice cold desires
Filling the empty void
With lies
To burn out the fire
Let’s be honest here
Do you really care
Or are you just afraid,
I wish I could tell you
Tell you the truth
Maybe you will see
See clearly
You are wearing foggy glasses
They are not rose coloured
Please do not settle
For less than you deserve
Maybe I’m being selfish
Because I want to be
The person you deserve

When we build ourselves up, so will others in return. This is a lesson I should have learned. Good philosophy
