FREE CEE i reckon i come in second

     I RECKON I DESPISE WHEN I COME SECOND

You have no idea how much it hurts when insult comes to beckon
and I realize that no matter what my wishes will come second
there's always a pillar of doubt standing in the way of my devotion
and you are playing with a man with a raw emotion

I ask you to do something but something else comes first
and nothing I can think of can feel any worse
knowing that someone comes before me
and it happens repeatedly

I don't ask much, at least that's my belief
and the way you treat me brings nothing but grief
when you need something done I drop everything in favor of you
and i'm tired of the selfish things you do

I could be anxious to have you listen to me
but someone else has you do something benevolently
forget the notion that you should consider my need before all involved
and this is a problem that may never be solved

you can't imagine how badly it makes me feel
when you say “don't worry, it's no big deal”
well to me it's major and I'm tired of being shoved aside
it's a notion this storm of a man can no longer abide

    It is hard when we feel unappreciated Jeffry, it is important that we know our own value so we don't get lost in someone else's value of us. You count, know that. Luv vie
