my lyricsbox
We are partners, we are a team
Together we'll have everything we dream
If we combine our efforts
there's nothing we can't do
You'll support me, but first I'll support you
For now we'll go after the things that you need
A single objective to help you succeed
Because I'm as important to you
as you are to me
I'll get what I need eventually

But you go first
And I'll take the rest
And it will all work out for the best
I have patience because I understand you
And can wait to do
all of the things that I planned to
But what is that elusive thing you'll earn
That makes you finally realize it's my turn
Am I fooling myself that we're really united
The love is there but the respect unrequited
I am your anchor, do I just hold you in place
The eye of your storm, am I just empty space
But you go first
And I'll take the rest
And it will all work out for the best
You know an object at rest stays at rest
You can't have inertia with things unexpressed
By the time I knew politeness
Was the opposite of brilliance
I'd spent my resources
And lost my resilience
Without me you pick up where you left off
Without you I'm back where I started
But you go first
And I'll take the rest
And it will all work out for the best
I know you didn't consciously deceive
And neither did I when I chose to believe
But now I am stuck in a place I can't leave
While I watch you achieve and
achieve and achieve
I guess maybe I knew how much you would cost
That when I said yes that I'd already lost
But now I'm so tired and
not sure how to pursue it
And I don't have a partner like me
to help me do it
This song is from the album "Secretions".
