I always get everything I want
Yet my heart feels so empty
I have everything I could need
But my life just doesn’t feel filled
I know I am selfish from wanting more
And that so many people have less
I just cant forget the one thing
Everything about my life is so perfect
But I can’t find happiness in it
It’s like I have no control of it anymore
Someone else has the wheel in their hands
There is nothing more I should ask for
I know I have already asked too much
I just can’t help losing my happiness
For the one thing I can never have
The thing that will make me beyond lucky
To make anyone’s wildest dreams come true
It’s you that would make everything perfect
But too lucky is what I already am

Thank you so much! Ya I feel like it's good to write about exactly how you feel because so many others are probably feeling exactly like you are.
