Music and lyrics by Woody Jiang

lyrics

I remember when you'd speak to me about who we were going to be
I was sure there was nothing else but now our time has all run out

I'd always thought that in the end we'd have more to show than this
I wanted us to be the best but here we are with so much less

And is it everything you thought that it would be
Does it make you happy
Does it set you free

And is it everything you thought that it would be

'Cause when you told me
Like you didn't know me
You were gonna leave me
It nearly broke me

Don't think I don't understand
You've gotta be your own man
And no one spends their life asleep
Not even for the sweetest dreams

I used to feel it when we'd play guitar we'd go higher than the highest stars
And all our hopes were more than dreams and someday we would find our wings

But what are dreams without a plan they just lead you back where you began
I'm tired of saying I think we can and now it's just I think I can

And is it everything you thought that it would be
Does it make you happy
Does it set you free

And is it everything you thought that it could be
Are you happy
Are you free

'Cause when you told me
Like you didn't know me
You were gonna leave me
It nearly broke me

Don't think I don't understand
You've gotta be your own man
And no one spends their life asleep
Not even for the sweetest dreams
