Vanessa-
Troy, listen.

I gotta say what's on my mind
Something about us
Doesn't seem right these days
Life keeps getting in the way
Whenever we try
Somehow the plan
Is always rearranged

It's so hard to say
But I've got to do what's best for me
You'll be okay

[Chorus]
I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find a 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 gray
And it's just to hard
To watch it all
Slowly fade away

I'm leaving today
'Cause I gotta do what's best for me
You'll be okay

[Chorus]
I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find a place in this world someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way

Zac-
What about us?
What about everything we've been through?

Vanessa-
What about trust?

Zac-
You know I never wanted to hurt you

Vanessa-
What about me?

Zac-
What am I supposed to do?

Vanessa-
I gotta leave but I'll miss you

Vanessa-
So, I've got to move on and be who I am

Zac-
Why do you have to go?

Vanessa-
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

Zac-
I'm trying to understand

Vanessa-
We might find a place in this world someday
But at least for now

Zac-
I want you to stay

Vanessa-
I gotta go my own way (hold "way")
I've got to move on and be who I am (say during "way")

Zac-
What about us?

Vanessa-
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

Zac-
I'm trying to understand

Vanessa-
We might find a place in this world someday (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

    This song means that Gab. doesn't want to be with Troy because he got new shoes and everything. Gab. is thinking of leaving but she'll miss Troy. I mean, if she doesn't leave now, then sooner or later she will have to. And things will get worst. Ya get it?

    I like this song because it is very good. But it makes me sad. It reminds me of something. But anyways, this song is about sadness. Troy doesn't want Gab to leave. But Gab wants to leave because everything is going wrong for them. So when Gab sings this song, Troy wants to say "sorry" but it's too late. Troy and Gab got to go separate ways sooner or later.

    This song means that Troy loves Gab but he always have something popping up to him right when he does something with Gab. So she is feeling left out and she's leaving. But Gab will miss Troy.

    This song'z meaning can be they are breaking up or they love each other so much but there isn't much space in the whole world for them together and maybe they can be together after a while so now they have to go their seperate ways

    i think it means that they love other each but right now they cant be together cuz of the sitution and even though they are apart they'll be missing and loving each other but till then they gotta go the separate ways and they meet again
