Potential Man

I fell in love with your potential
You see you didn't have everything I wanted in a man
And trust me I understand
Theres no such thing as the perfect man
But you weren't the right man for me
I fell in love with what I thought I could see
I saw the potential in you to be someone great
Mate,
I fell in love with the person you couldn't see yourself becoming
But I had faith in you
Something you did not have in yourself so I hoped my faith would not only carry me but carry you too.
To where?
 I don't know, but I was willing to come along for the ride because I fell in love with your potential
Something that will probably never come into fruition because it was what I wanted
In order for it to be, you would have to want it too
But you don't want it boo
You're just so caught up by what you can get now
But how do you expect to grow if you don't build from now.
Don't get it twisted people I don't doubt his abilities
He's more than capable of making his dreams a reality.
To encourage you to support you to push you I will
But there's only so much I can do I'm just being real
Maybe I'm not supposed to reach that promised land with you
 it's hard to swallow that pill
But I fell in love with your potential
It's time for you to show the world what's real
