I couldn’t be who I wanted to be by standing with you,

I felt like a caged bird that needed to be free,

I was confusing myself by walking with you,

No, in the beginning I didn’t need to be free,

In the beginning it was okay to stand and walk by you.


Then I began to experience more,

I began to see a different life,

I started to want more,

I met new people in my new life,

I felt I could have more.


No, I don’t think I’m better than you,

I was just tired of my old life and my old self,

The new me wasn’t right for you,

I didn’t want to stay in your life by being my old self,

I wanted a different life and different me so I had to walk away from you.
