i've been slipping into your skin; what can i do when you expect so much of me? when you are all i want to be? when i don't feel myself whenever you're around? and every cell inside my body screams that you're the only one i'll ever need, and, piece by piece, i'm losing more and more of me just to get close to you. i've been slipping into your life, your heart, your world, tasting your touch. what would it like to be you just for a moment? just for once? i wish i could be good enough to play the part you wrote for us; i can't be me, and yet i can't be you. what can i do when you don't like the way i am when i'm not trying to please you? what can i do when you expect so much of me? and you are all i want to be, but even if i lay my life down at your feet, all that you'll ever love is you, all that i'll ever be is me.
