"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
~Michael Jordan

I know who you are, but at the same time, I don't.
For awhile you were on a sinking boat,
now you're starting to float,
but sometimes I think you're still sinking...

Are you the boy with the golden smile who looks at me with those gorgeous eyes?
Or are you still where you started?

Do you care about me, my feelings, my fears?
Do you care about my opinions, about the tears
that hit my pillow?

Is your disrespect just a charade?
Part of your parade?
Or is it you?
I know who you're trying to be...
But at the same time, I don't.

Are you the boy who secretly cries at night?
Or are you really that boy who openly challenges a fight?
Openly defies authority?

Have you come as far as you've deceived me to think?

I know what you're trying to do...
But at the same time, I don't.

Are you still the rebel?
Or are you a beautiful blossoming flower?
Who has the superpower
of making me smile at any moment

But you can't be both my golden boy and my enemy
Gotta pick a side, boy, 'cuz you keep me up,
Wondering if this was luck
That you sit behind me
That I can't really see
If you've come as far as I thought, baby.
I get you, why you act like you do. But at the same time, I don't.
