He just doesn't see
All the things I see in her
That I used to see in me

He gives me his heart and
Most of his time
But why does he leave her standing
Alone and so far behind?

The path of their friendship
Is rocky and rough
Brushed over with weeds
It's just not clear enough

Yet I am the gardener
Their future in my hands
Cutting back years of growth
So much harder than I planned

There're vines that are tangled
And roots that run deep
And big hills and drop offs
Dangerously steep

All this sprouted from seedlings
Planted far in the past
Still her flowers are like mine
To see that is all I ask

He just doesn't see
All the things in her
That I used to see in me

He just doesn't see

He just doesn't ever see

All the beauty growing strong in her
That once grew in me

All the beauty strong inside of her
That same thing is in me

It's just so hard for him to look at her
To look at her and see
We've got so many similarities
So what is different about me?

I just do not get why he cannot see

It makes absolutely no sense to me
It makes absolutely no sense to me
It makes absolutely no sense to me
