we always want what we can't have
a fancy car
flawless makeup
the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend
dazzling jewelry, a huge house
a plane, a million dollars

but why must we always want more?
why can't we settle for what we have?
a car that runs
the face you have
someone who treats you fair
and loves you for the way you are
happiness to bejewel you
a house that is a home
a ride with friends
money won't buy true love, friendship, or happiness
why must we always want more
when we have everything we need
right here, right now
what we have
