[Gabriella]
I gotta say what's on my mind
Something about us
Doesn't seem right these days
Life keeps gettin in the way
Whenever we try, somehow the plan
Is always rearranged
It's so hard to say
But I've gotta do what's best for me
You'll be ok...
I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find our place in this
World someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way
Don't wanna leave it all behind
But I get my hopes up
And I watch them fall every time
Another color turns to grey
And it's just too hard to watch it all

Slowly fade away
I'm leaving today 'cause I
Gotta do what's best for me
You'll be ok...
I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find our place in this
World someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way

[Troy]
What about us?
What about everything we've been through?

[Gabriella]
What about trust?

[Troy]
You know I never wanted to hurt you

[Gabriella]
what about me?

[Troy]
What am I supposed to do?

[Gabriella]
I gotta leave but I'll miss you

[Troy]
I'll miss you

[Gabriella]
So
I've got to move on and be who I am

[Troy]
Why do you have to go?

[Gabriella]
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

[Troy]
I'm trying to understand

[Gabriella]
We might find our place in this
World someday
But at least for now

[Troy]
I want you to stay

[Gabriella]
I gotta go my own way
I've got to move on and be who I am

[Troy]
What about us?

[Gabriella]
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

[Troy]
I'm trying to understand

[Gabriella]
We might find our place in this
World someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way
I gotta go my own way
I gotta go my own way

    Eish, this song hurts, simply implies that sometimes in some situation you just have to do something right for someone even if, is to leave that person. The girl loves the boy to an extend that she is strong and brave to let him go maybe the boy was acting strange, his actions depicted that he needed a space. For example he always rearrange the plans. (thuso wilson maja).

    I think that the meaning of the song "gotta go my own way" is trying to tell people that if you love a person that much tht you need to let them go even though it is going to hurt you but lettung them go is whats beat for you and the love one that you are letting go: '(
