I try hard to make it,

But nothing's good enough for you.

I'm sick of trying,

Sick of failing,

Just sick of you.

I've given up,

Trying hard to beat

The expectations

You set for me.

All I ever wanted to do

Was make you proud,

But I wasn't good enough for you,

Instead I drowned

In your plans. You see,

I'm not you.

All I ever wanted to be

Was to myself true.

Now you've lost me

And I'm never turning back

Cause I want you to see,

I can make it in this world

Just by being me.
