Lost and drowning in the sea of love
I found myself lost in your shadow
Living a life that wasn’t mine
I was scared, and I just tended to follow

But as time went on, I slowly realized
That I was more than just your significant other
I had dreams and aspirations to pursue
And a future that wasn’t tied to anyone
