We are what we're supposed to be?



You are you
I am me
we are what
we're supposed to be

What I was
Is not who I am
Time can change
people from more than
hand to hand

But only you will ever know
I have lost everything
and gained back
And I am finally happy
where I am at

You are you
I am me
We are exactly
what we're supposed to be
for I am happy
that I am free
