Story

This song tells the story of someone who misses his opportunity to really show the person he loves how he feels and in doing so misses his chance for a lasting relationship. An old story and a sad one, but he seems to have learned his lesson this time, even if it's too late.

Lyrics

Me, Being Me

 

I always have believed we were written in the stars

My true love, sure enough, is what you are

But when you needed more from me, I said I needed time

Afraid to show you what I felt inside

 

So me, being me I put it off another day

And me, being me I couldn't find the words to say

It was my mistake, now it's too late

'Cause you, being you walked away

 

You always were the one who knew which way to turn

You'd say either way there's something learned

But I was busy standing still, resisting every change

Afraid of something I couldn't even name

 

Chorus

 

All I had to do was open up my soul

But I never thought you'd really go

 

So me, being me I put it off another day

And me, being me I couldn't find the words to say

Oh me, being me I should have begged you then to stay

That was my mistake, now it's too late

'Cause you, being you walked away
