Take them for granted every time
Gave up everything to start me breathing
And there's no name for that resolve
There's no name for that, it's everything but needing

And keep this little thing in mind
Your old devotion and your way of thinking
What a way to spend your time
What a way to give me all you could be keeping

But do you really enjoy this?
Does it not make you wince sometimes?

And you deserve everything I was given in real life
Look at this house you've built I've been living in all this time

You did what I worry I could never do
Sacrificing all your hopes for mine
Now I've become so self-involved
It's easy to forget what you left behind

And would I ever do the same?
The task of giving, never asking anything
Does it resonate with selfish souls?
Are you like me, or have I grown up cold?

But do you really enjoy this?
Does it not make you wince sometimes?

And you deserve everything I was given in real life
Look at this house you've built I've been living in all this time

I've been feeling, but I know that you know me
I'll always need mothering
Never discovered how to live beyond myself
Life is so giving
Don't think that I'm capable
Would sacrifice anything

You deserve everything I was given in real life
Look at this house you've built I've been living in all this time
You deserve everything I was given in real life
Look at this house you've built I've been living in all this time
You deserve everything
Oh, you deserve everything
