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

    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 a felt broken heart when a girl has to go somewhere with their own family leaving their own true lover boy out of nowhere to be found and be separated as though it had become very sad and it hurts really bad too! I would not be crying if I see and watch this music video that will break my heart for a reason and I would not leave my own boyfriend alone and I will be with my own boyfriend forever! :-(!

    Hey my name is breanne and I'm from florida I watched hsm 1 2 and 3 I listen to ashley's music and vannessa's I have wii sing it and I have sung the song bet on it like 10 to 20 times I love yall so much and hope to be as good as you 1 day. When I 1st watched hsm2 I wanted to keep watching it over and over cuz I loved it so much hsm3 was my favorite I love the song scream by zac I have all his songs from hsm and I love them all yall rock. Gotta find my own way I think is were sometimes you think ur in a safe place and you have a good time bring there but 1 day you have to leave and draw the straw like vanessa did to ashley before she started singing she said to ashley ' you can't look in the mirror long enough to clear the damage left behind' I thought that was true becuase she does do some pretty bad stuff in the movie but shes not like that in real life I hope or I think lol well you guys rock!
