Can I Be You?

"can i be you? can i be you? oh, i could be you. but could you be me?"

i could be you. i could be the one doing something "honorable". i could be the one trying to "protect" my friend. i could be the one saying she's not ready, i have to keep her safe. i could be the one taking the smoother path. i could be the one making the choices. i could be the one in control. i could be the one with two lovers to choose from. i could be the one avoiding the subject. i could be the one making the promises that don't mean anything.

but could you be me? it's not so easy when you're the one being lied about, when you're the dirty little secret. it's not so much fun to know someone's hiding the fact that they're with you, that they can't even admit that they care about you. it's not easy to be treated like a play thing, around when someone wants you, then cast aside like nothing. it's not okay when you're the one being lied to and hurt.

can i be you?



(quotes from Liz Fohl's 'Can I Be You?')
