My life only sits in the background for you
I'm just evidence of your mistake
I don't want to get in the way for you
Here I'm in the way, you're moving on

I just want to make you stop
I want you to see today
That I am more than some memento
From harder times

I seem only to humiliate you
All I ever tried was to make you proud
Will you let me sit quietly here with you
And won't you please act like you give a damn

I just want to make you stop
I want you to see today
That I am more than some memento
From harder times
I don't need to be the prize
I don't need to be your one
But I refuse to be a keepsake
From your former life

Here, here I am, but you're not in
It's always something
You've stepped away, you've stepped away
No, you're not in
It's always something

You were on a search
For self-improvement
But I just never thought
I'd be so outside
