Never thought I'd be the person to hang my head

In reaction to the things that no one yet had said

Never thought I'd be the one, whose own identity

Based on conformity

I'd start to questioning, no…

-

It's been a year since I first met you

You said we were on the same boat

(I hope not 'cause)

We try to row it in different directions

And we can barely make it float

-

Showing my feelings outside

Wish I could say that I tried

To let you know

-

That you are you, and I am me

And we are who we choose to be

It's hard, it hurts, but still you're free

'Cause there's this thing called agency

However strong your feelings are

No matter who lifts up your heart

Don't blame it for the role you choose to play

Let's try our hardest either way

-

Some people cause themselves to capsize

In protest of the angry waves

My heart is echoing their anguished cries

(But I) keep rowing with the oars He gave

The current's moving so much stronger

To the place I don't want to be

But I can row the boat for longer

Should you choose not to go with me

-

These boats are just illusions

Really, we all have to swim

I hope you know

-

That you are you, and I am me

And we are who we choose to be

It's hard, it hurts, but still you're free

'Cause there's this thing called agency

However strong your feelings are

No matter who lifts up your heart

Don't blame it for the role you choose to play

Let's try our hardest either way

-

We can try rocking the boat

And we can stand firm to the fate that we wrote

It's not my business to convert you

The last thing I want is to hurt you

But I can no longer just float

And yet I know

-

That I am me, and you are you

And I can't tell you what to do

Whatever pain it puts me through

I know the choice is yours to choose

However wrong I think you are

If you end up among the stars

I know you're there 'cause you believe it's right

Please write me from the other…

-

You are you, and I am me

And we are who we choose to be

It's hard, it hurts, but still you're free

'Cause there's this thing called agency

However strong your feelings are

No matter who lifts up your heart

Don't blame it for the role you choose to play

Let's try our hardest either way
