You see all that is within me
Know all that I could ever be
Fighting, struggling, wanting to be free
From the cage locked deep inside of me
I cry no tears even though your pain is tormenting
And for as long as I can remember, for as long as I have felt my own heartbeat
You have been there, torturing everlasting
Taking away what I want, destroying my needs
Controlling my dreams, striving to be led
But I like Red and you like Aquamarine
We’re too different, it seems, for both of us to be free
It’s either you or me
I must depart from you and say GOODBYE to the old me.
