Seems to me that living large is far too overrated When I hit the wall it became far too complicated When it stopped being fun I was altogether numb Looked over my shoulder; couldn't see from where I'd come
Been driven forever toward everything I thought I wanted Believed that's what mattered.... but now I'm just exhausted Not sure these days who I was trying to impress, anyway With a false sense of success I could never break away.
In the chase to have it all I became overextended Seeing it clearly now, it's not the life I intended If I never have the chance to tell you face-to-face Your touch on my heart opened a place of grace
My thoughts are filled with hope and contrition For what I know is the truth is quite the contradiction The life I created for myself was completely untrue Then I knew what it could be when I came to know you.
Should our eyes never meet, you'll not see my gratitude But I can tell you, at least, so it's clearly understood Your gifts have inspired a soul worth exploring My appreciation grows for a person worth knowing.
