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.
