This song was my acknowledgment of the end of the line of a particular relationship.


1 I’ll be the first to admit what I did wrong: I pretended that I could be someone different; that I was the girl I thought you wanted me to become. But I’ll never be anyone but me and that’s alright.

Chorus We came so close. We tasted love. But it strained and stalled. Now it’s gone.

2 Baby, you couldn’t help but criticize me. Nothing I did was good enough to make you happy. I tried to please you but there was no satisfying your need to be my everything. Everything?

Bridge I reveal the real me and you reject completely. I hope you find just what you seek, but tell me what is love if we can’t be genuine?
