about

A reminder to be kind to yourself.

lyrics

Here we go all over again
just watching history repeating
Tell me, what’s it gonna take for us
to find ourselves a deeper meaning?
I’ve seen the writing on the wall and waited for the world to change
But maybe that’s the reason I get trapped inside the same old game.

Every time,
my expectations become
frustration.

I’m feeling kinda tired
Not deciding if I’m out or in
Lying awake at night just fantasising bout what might’ve been
I keep on hoping, dreaming 'bout the way I want things to become
But when I start expecting it the situation comes undone

And every time,
my expectations become
frustration.

Maybe I’m deluded in assuming I can change the world
I know it only happens when there’s action coming from my words
I look inside and hope I find the answer to just what is best
Cos I’m having trouble dealing with this aching feeling in my chest.

And every time, my expectations…
Widen my eyes to limitations…
Maybe I need to learn patience from my
Frustration.
