What I Thought I Wanted?
What I wanted I truly thought it was you.
Someone who loves to be with me,
Someone who’s love was strong and true.
What I wanted was becoming a reality
You said you never wanted to leave me alone
What I wanted was love, and to see it grow,
Having a home with love, while calling it our own.
What I wanted was to be number one or even the fifth in your life.
What I wanted was the person I love, to become my wife.
Someone to take the time, to understand how loving I am.
Someone that knew when it comes to being a man, “that I am.”
Know that there’s nothing I am materialistic attached.
Someone that knows when disputing not attacked
What I wanted I saw in you.
Sadden by the clock of time it became untrue.
So many things I heard that came from your voice
That made me believe the person I wanted was you,
But when time passed on by
I realize, what I wanted was not you.
What I wanted was an image, an image you made.
Of a woman that you were not.
I think it’s called being played.
Funny how people paint a picture of life.
Then it’s up to you to see the colors of truth and lies.
Not an easy task, and at times impossible too.
I thank god to this day
That what I truly wanted I realized it was not you.
