lyrics

You never really loved him like you told him that you would
He asked you, would you marry him? you said it sounded good
You said that you would pay for all your school first by yourself
And you never really loved him like you told him that you would

You worked as many hours as you could to make your way
He said that he would care for you, you pushed it all away
You found your peace in showing him that you could be okay
And you worked as many hours as you could to make your way

You always dreamed of making it a little down the road
You didn’t want to stop til you became a CEO
Or something independent that would show off all you know
Yea, you always dreamed of making it a little down the road

But oh, you don’t know where you’re trying to go
You try and you try and you try, but you will never know

One day you decided that it really wouldn’t do
You didn’t want to end it, but you needed something new
Only for a while, to remember how it feels
And the day that you decided was the day you chose to move

You told us with an obvious excitement on your face
You couldn’t wait to see what it was like at your new place
It was a chance to reimagine who you were and where you’d been
Yes, you told us with an obvious excitement from within

And oh, you don’t know where you’re trying to go
You try and you try and you try, but you will never know

And it’s hard to make a guess at where you’ll be in some odd years
And even harder yet to know if you’ll have overcome your fears
You’re stronger without your tendency to make us all
Believe that you are stronger than we know
