You have the talent, and partners want what you've got, not what you don't have!
So you’re ready for some responsibility
That takes plenty of talent and ability;
You would like a partner and a job –
No, you’re not being a demanding snob…

But what in this life doesn’t take talent and luck?
To survive in this world, you need love and a buck.
What on earth do I expect you to do?
Be by yourself and be as poor as you?!

Signed, sealed, delivered, it’s yours –
You have all the talent to open these doors.
You just have to learn some important restraint;
When you can’t, you can’t, and when you ain’t, you ain’t!

You’ve hit a roadblock, and I can tell
The size of the tree you’ve been trying to fell.
But you’re here, my dear, and able to succeed,
For the mother of all inventions is need!

I could never ask you to win a fight that big,
Or find a challenge that you couldn’t renege;
But the truth is, babe, you’ve got the talent,
And there’s hope with that that’s Heaven sent!

Your partner will be looking for what you’ve got,
Not all the things you wish for, or not!
Count your blessings like your future lover will;
They will find you adorable, and quite a thrill!

People think you’re cute – they know what they like;
Folks go together – it’s like riding a bike.
It’s the faith and yearning they’re trying to perceive
From your poor, young heart before you receive…

Hopeless romantics, could this be enough
For that weak, tired soul to act really tough?
I know you want to sigh, and say “I can’t do it!”
But you have nothing to lose, and there’s nothing to it!
