Why is it we all seem to lose part of ourselves in a relationship and that the only way to get "us" back is to leave?

I'm comin back to reality and it sure feels nice

Cause I'm seeing the forest for the trees and I won't go backwards twice

There's no one to blame

Its all about perception

But when it starts to change,

Beware of the lessons...

I'm seeing you my friend quite differently

Or maybe what's changing is inside of me?

I'm not a needy little girl

who'll follow you around the world

I got it goin' on again

I'm saying goodbye at last my friend

Cause I see who you are quite clearly

Though I admit I do miss you dearly

When I said goodbye I left your issues too

If you don't believe what's inside me then that's the real you

Now I walk with my head towards the sun

through the hot and humid streets

And think about who's right for me, the one I'll someday meet

Who feels deeply it's what they deserve

Who can give of themselves in more than just words

Whose desires are fueled just being with me

Who understands the meaning of "believe"

And I hope as you read this it won't be too strong

But one more minute with you is a minute too long

When the love that would be, could never be free

To feel and grow when you just don't believe

(Love:  a process)
