People change, over the course of a romantic relationship. Sometimes they grow and change together, and sometimes they grow and change apart. "The Person" is about the latter.
I'm sorry I'm not the person I used to be.
I wish I were but I'm not and I'm trying to bring, them back
I wish I could just go back to being that confident person.
Maybe that never was me, was it all an act.
And I know you're frustrated with my restraint and I'm sorry that I can’t be better
At meeting your needs oh I know I can’t please you I'm terrified to see, that
Maybe we're just not meant to be. I love you so much but I can't see
A way that this works out, A way to get back what we had
Because ultimately, I'm not the person, the person you need me to be
I'm sorry I'm not the person I thought I was
When we first got together, I told you you'd be my primary one.
But that didn't feel right, and I told you as much and we said we would make it work
And now you are needing that more everyday and I feel like I'm a big jerk
I'm holding you back, and
And I wanted to be that person for you, and I wanted try and see it through
Sometimes it's better to give up and call it draw
But that doesn't change the heartbreak when you fall
