Your Definition of Success Didn't Include My Dreams, So Goodbye

Location

Austin
United States

You've got me pacing back and forth
You've got me doubting what I'm worth
This is it now, I'm all through
I'm living my life and it's not for you

They say I need you, but they're all wrong
I'm gonna conquer this world on my own
So, I'm leaving in just a few days
To chase my dreams and sing my blues away

Because you're not what I need
And I want to be free
Yeah you're not what I need
Just watch and you will see

Stop testing me for my definition
It doesn't measure my intelligence or my ambition
I'm just fine the way I am
You tell me I can't and I'll prove that I can

They say I need you, but they're all wrong
I'm gonna conquer this world on my own
So, I'm leaving in just a few days
To chase my dreams and sing my blues away

Because you're not what I need
And I want to be free
Yeah you're not what I need
Just watch and you will see

It's been real but it hasn't been fun
And all I can thank you for is showing me
You're not the one
