Everything You Wanted

May 30, 2008
By Sylvan Tsai, New City, NY

Hey, you- remember me?
I'm everything you wanted to be
The ballerina; the fairy tale princess
The hero who gets rid of the mess

Hey, you- remember me?
I'm everything you used to be
Innocent, ignorant, and naïve
The fool wearing his heart on his sleeve

Hey, you- remember me?
I'm everything you thought you would be
The beloved queen; the gallant knight
The beauty in love at first sight

Hey, you- remember me?
I'm everything you wish you could be
The school girl with a happily ever after
The one surrounded by familiar laughter

Hey, you- remember me?
I'm everything you'll never be
And just another face in the crowd.
Because you are who you are now.
