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.

    I think that Gabriella loves Troy but she have to go her own way because she is feeling left out. And everytime when Troy arrange a date for them together but they never got to. Because Sharpay is in the way. I really like this song. Sometimes it makes me kinda sad. But whatev.

    ♥ this is such a sad song..about letting go of someone you really love..she was really hurt that's why she decided to leave..but isn't it nicer and more romantic that instead of leaving, she stayed and help him realize how she really felt? well, its kinda hard..nice song!♥
