Your Mistake(Glad It's Not Mine)

Folder: 
Romanticism

you don't like how i dress
and you don't like how you look
in the mirror
you've got gossip to share
and the latest clothes to wear
it's not enough
i can't be surprised
you say to my carefree ways, why?
and that i can't see you
but i can't be surprised when you can't see yourself

well thankfully i don't have your eyes,
or i'd be really missing out on something...you
that's your mistake
not mine
and i'm glad i get rewarded for that
when you pass me by

you don't like what fashion jests
and you don't like how you look
versus models
you've spread gossip about her
and she's spread gossip about you
it's ironic
but i can't be surprised

i'm not surprised

well thankfully i don't have your eyes,
or i'd be really missing out on something...you
that's your mistake
not mine
and i'm glad i get rewarded for that
when you pass me by

it's your mistake
i'm glad it's not mine
because i'd be missing out
goodness your'e missing out on you

it's your mistake
i'm glad it's not mine
because i'd be missing out
goodness you're missing out on you

might be missing out on me, too

well thankfully i don't have your eyes,
or i'd be really missing out on myself too
that's your mistake
not mine
and i'm glad i get rewarded for that
when i live my life

can you live your life?

can you live your life?

well thankfully i don't have your eyes,
or i'd be really missing out on something...you
that's your mistake
not mine
and i'm glad i get rewarded for that
as time passes by
as time passes by

Song Lyrics

 Why am I hearing a blue guitar? I'm glad I am me - developing sight is patamount! Try to see it my way? Hmmmm...

That sort of "hearing" seems

That sort of "hearing" seems be a not entirely uncommon response my writing. I think I've gotten that a few times now, and almost certainly on a previous writing which you've been kind enough to read. Whereas I try to write lyrical poetry, I'm glad that comes across sometimes : )  Thank you for reading, and I am glad to 'hear' that you are glad to be you ; )
