I'm Not That Half Eaten Apple

I know I’m not that good

But I swear to you
I’m not that bad
I’m not that half eaten apple
You throw in the trash
Plant me and you’ll see
A big beautiful fruitful tree
Everybody wants to be wanted
Everybody needs to be needed
Nobody wants to be nobody to anybody
So why
Do you treat anybody
That way
Would it be something
If everyone could be everybodies some one
Nobody to fight for
No one to have or die for
Understanding that we
Are what we are here for
