My Way
by Melissa S, Ryan

WHEN WE MET IT WAS LOVE, BUT WE KNEW IT COULD NOT BE
WE CAME FROM TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS AND WE JUST WEREN'T MEANT 
I THOUGHT YOU WOULD SEE.

WE DIDN'T GIVE UP OUR LITTLE FIGHT. 
WE TRIED FOR HAPPINESS, 
WE CRIED IN THE RAIN. 
THE LOVE BETWEEN US WAS SO INSANE, 
'CAUSE IT ALWAYS HAD TO BE YOUR WAY.

SO I TRIED IT YOUR WAY AND YOU PUSHED ME AWAY, 
IT WAS NEVER GOOD ENOUGH. 
I NEVER SAID WHAT YOU WANTED TO HEAR, 
I WAS NEVER WHAT YOU WANTED ME TO BE.

WE LAUGHED, WE CRIED WE SAID OUR GOOD BYES 
BUT WE NEVER REALLY LEFT, DID WE? 
'CAUSE IT WAS YOUR WAY. 
"MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY", I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY, 
IT WAS ALRIGHT, IT WAS OK.

YOU WEREN'T HAPPY AND YOU AREN'T NOW 
'CAUSE YOU COULDN'T SEE THE TRUTH IN YOUR HEART. 
IT WAS THERE YOU JUST HAD TO MEET ME HALF WAY 
BUT IT COULD NEVER BE, 
CAUSE IT WASN'T YOUR WAY. 

YOU PUSHED YOU SHOVED, I SHOVED BACK. 
NOT CUTTING YOU ANY SLACK. I GAVE IN, I LET GO, 
YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW... YOU WERE TOO INTO YOURSELF. 
TOO BLIND TO SEE THAT YOU NEED ME AND THAT OUR LOVE WAS STRONG. 
NO MORE "I'M ON MY WAY", TO SOMEONE NEW THAT WILL MEET ME HALF WAY. 
NOT YOU, IT AINT YOUR WAY.
