Be Somebody

Updated on March 25, 2018

Someone Else

We are at a phase

That I thought would work

Winning the race

For what its worth


Then again I fell short

Thinking maybe it was my fault

Not showcasing the best

Not truly knowing what to express


Waiting for the right moment

Even if gestures were offered

Yet why is it all over

Nothing started nor ended


Everyday was magical

A simple message

Drove me insane

How am I to blame


You were everything I wanted

Honestly even more

That's why I feel rotten to the core

Because it was just me


I broke down my walls

Trying to break yours

Forgetting the worst

Thinking of a new birth


Trying to be a better man

Leaving it all behind

No more secrets, no more lies

I wanted to be that guy


So what else could I have done

Just to find out

You never wanted one

Simply put, I wasn't the one


Thoughts rambling through

I wasn't meant for you

Still I thought differently

Waiting, that just maybe


She would slowly realize

That I would be the right guy

But why has it come to this

You never wanted it


I tried to get closer

Yet you pushed me further

Telling them it wasn't enough

I thought, I already did much


Still I choose to blame myself

Since I thought well

Maybe she needs time

To slowly make up her mind


Why not tell me to stop

Rather than watch me try

Fall deeper inlove

Without a chance to survive


So watch me try,

Even ask you why,


WHY CAN'T I BE THAT GUY...
