If you only see yourself,you miss what's important.
You had dreams this I know
Of greater things you were meant to be
Of finer things just slightly out of reach
Even of a house high upon a hill
And what joy you felt
When finally your dreams
Started to come true
Oh how you loved those finer things
And you sat them all out
For the world to see
And the more you gained
The less you thought you had
There was still something missing
Something you still needed
You thought you weren't blessed
When you were more than most
And you never felt loved
Because you were reaching too far
You were only looking up
Never all around
I suppose they were too small to see
Or give what your heart needed
Still somethings missing
Because of your reflection
You never could see
