We learn a lot from those who love us
Learn a lot from those who don't.
There's only so much you can do
With those who can't or those who won't.
Eventually you come to see
That you can do and care for them
And love them 'till the cows come home
But it won't change things either way.
So if you find you're worrisome
Take on step back and try to see
If you deserve to wait and wait
For hell to freeze
Your foresight before it's too late
To have something
To call your own
Before the cows come home.
