I'm afraid
For the first time in my life
I am terrified
I don't know what's around the corner
I don't know which path to take
I don't even know who I am anymore
I never knew that you were so much of me
I always thought I was my own person
That no one told me who I was
No one influenced me
I was myself, no one else
But that is never true
I think we're all made up of so many things
We can't even tell the difference
Between ourselves
And who makes us
And now, only now I learn this
Now that you're gone, and I lost a part of myself
Now I have to fill that void
I have to become something else
But I just don't know how
How do I make something else of myself
When so much of me was you for so long
I pretend that I'm fine
That I know who I am
That I don't need you
But I need you so much
I don't want to be myself anymore
I want you back
I want you to be a part of me again
Please come back
Fulfill me again
I want to become you
I want to forget myself
I don't care who I am apart from you
I only care about you
Just come back
And let me be you
