People just aren't perfect.
so you tried to be my lover
as if that could ever work
then you tried to be my mother
as if that could heal the hurt

the inevitable blurring
or the crossing of the line
that delineates our problem
you're so sure you are divine

always take one step too many
never look before you leap
sow more seeds than you are counting
never caring what you'll reap

But you smile when you are hurting
and you care more than you should
can't ignore the plight of others
can't resist just doing good

and you love to say you love me
sad to say I know it's true
our relationship ain't failing
friction works somehow, who knew?
