I'm through living in your shadow
When does my life become my own?
I've tried my best to do what's right
But it's always less than you condone

My whole life has always seemed foreign to me
Because I've been living out someone else's dreams
Well it's time to break through this euphoric haze
And begin to live life my own way

This is my life
This is my chance
To fulfill all my hopes and dreams
I'm through living my life for you
From now on, I'm living my life for me
I've tried my best to do what's right
But to you it's always been wrong
I'm just so damn tired
That is why I write this song

My heart is scarred from all these years
Of living out your humility
My mind has gone through it over again
Within my nightmares and my dreams

No more shadows
No more lies
I never knew just how I looked
Through other people's eyes
