Some people demand and demand without giving much themselves

Maybe a little more
or maybe less
to ensure our happiness
maybe some other place
or maybe another time

that's what we need

or maybe other people
another love
someone quite new
(not you)
not this or that

yeah everything new
that's what it takes
- or even more -
to please an old heart
tired ticker
measuring happiness
doesn't change or grow
only demanding, demanding ...

It's not difficult to understand. A sad subject, but the attitude is all around us.

Yes, sometimes a heart is set on all too much - and then it's still not enough ....
