You had me to get her
And here I thought it was me
I was changing, arranging
My life to fit your lies
It's all said, and all done
I gave it all for the long run
Can she say, the same thing?
I guess, this is goodbye and good luck

I can't be what you want me to be

CHORUS
I'm sorry for changing,
I'm sorry, it had to be this way
Believe me, it's easier
Just to pretend
But I won't apologize for who I am

Remember the time when
You said you were out with your "best friend"
But it wasn't your best friend
That you knew, I thought you meant
And I used to accept it
I didn't know I could be free
But I am, and I won't
Go back
'Cause you so don't deserve me

I don't even wanna be her

CHORUS
I'm sorry for changing,
I'm sorry, it had to be this way
Believe me, it's easier
Just to pretend
But I won't apologize for who I am

I thank you for
This hopeless war
'Cause through the pain I found
I'm stronger than before
Now I'm more
I don't need you anymore
Sorry

Listen close, I won't say this again

CHORUS
I'm sorry for changing,
I'm sorry, it had to be this way
Believe me, it's easier
Just to pretend
But I won't apologize for who I am

CHORUS
I'm sorry for changing,
I'm sorry, it isn't like it was
Believe me, it's easier
Just to pretend
But I won't apologize
Why should I apologize?
No, I won't apologize for who I am

    My ex boyfriend. He lied to me, when we were dating all the time. Then he dumped be because i changed. And bacause he liked another girl. Then a month later, he said he wanted me bakc, and still loved me. And he said he should have never let me go. Well, to bad. I'm dating someone. Hiws best friend actually. And it's easier just to pretend, that he didn't exsit in my life. And i feel bad that he was to late. And it's not like it was anymore. I'm sorry for not wanting to be what he wanted. Andhe doesn't derserve me anymore. All my friends say that also. I guess i'm not what he wanted. I wouldn't want to be the next girl he dates. I have someone better. I don't need him anymore.
