Angst Of The Wayward

How many years have I wasted
trying to be someone else?
How many years have I wasted
wishing I had taken a chance?
I just want to change.

At what point did I become
the stranger in the mirror?
At what point did I become
what I tried so hard to avoid?
I just wanted to change.

But when I crossed that bridge
I tried not to look back.
And when I crossed that bridge
I burned it behind me.

I was never who I wanted to be
and I lost myself along the way.
I was never who I wanted to be
and now I know I never will.
