She gave me not only my life
but an independence along with it
A freedom, a wish I didn't have to ask for
Those who have only thought about my life as theirs
all I want to do is share
My greatest defeats, my sacrifices, my triumphs
all of it is now yours
For the life’s I have unconsciously given birth to
and for the life’s I have unconsciously taken
Don't choose to only receive my burdens
Don't see me only in negative aspects
for I am you, I aspire to be you
We must share the blame,
The regrets and the things we take for granted
because I know what we all know
Life could be worse.
Of all the times, this, us,
are only to make someone proud
because what if my life was yours?
