Because You’re You. And I’m Me.

It’s never going to work.

You and I.

I want it to,

But it’ll never happen.

We have our own separate lives now.

We can’t put everything and everyone on hold

Just because I want to see you.

I want to be with you.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.

We won’t see each other after high school.

And I’m trying to live with that fact.

Maybe I’ll see your Facebook status every now and then.

And it’ll take me back to the day.

The memories we shared.

The feelings we had.

The need to be loved

By one another.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.

When we first met,

I remember it like it was yesterday.

It was one of the best days of my life.

Even if you were with someone else at the time.

When we first kissed

I felt like I was going to die

From the wave of emotions

That I felt for you.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.

I have to life with the fact

That I won’t have you ever again.

That you’re going away.

That I need to let go.

I get jealous every time you flirt with a girl,

Wondering if it’s harmless fun

Or turning into something serious.

Oh, how I wish it was me.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.

I don’t know how

To say goodbye.

Every time I see you in the hall at school

I turn away.

I don’t want to live with the fact

That I’ll never see you again.

We might never talk again.

I don’t want to.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.

So this will be the last

Time I write of you.

The last time I speak of you.

The last time I will see you.

But this won’t be the last time I think of you.

This won’t be the last time I want you.

This won’t be the last time I need you.

This won’t be the last time I love you.

Because you’re you.

And I’m me.

And this can’t change

Who we’re going to be.
