-The brightest future will always be based on the forgotten past
- It takes who you are and where you've been to make the person you are today
-As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person
-To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail


I've been counting the days
Since I began to live without you
So don't come around
I'm out of this town
And it don't get me down
'Cause I'm partying without you now

You're stuck in your miserable world
And I've dealt with it for way to long now
But it don't get me down
The fights go 'round and 'round
It's like a war that never ends
Now you're on your own now

When something makes me happy
You take it away
So get out of my way
'Cause you've never meant much to anyone
You're just jealous
'Cause it's me they want
And they get irritated when they hear your name

I fleed from you
I'm free
Don't care enough to
Write you a letter
That I'm happier without you
I'm free
I'm free
I'm free

This song is about me living with my abusive mother, but when I move out, I tell her that I'm free and I'm very happy without her. I tell her not to speak to me anymore, because I don't want to bother with her, because she can be miserable by herself. She's not gonna make me miserable anymore!

This song reminds me of Mitchel Musso's "Hey". Even when I sang it in my mind, words fit with melody. But it's still good :)
