But if there is somebody that makes you feel happy
Tends to your heart in the ways I've been lacking
Then who am I, who am I to stand in your way
That I feel is no longer your burden
If there is someone that can make you feel perfect
Then who am I who am I to stand in your way
Chester See - Who Am I to Stand in Your Way
Who am I to stand in your way? Who am I to stop you from moving on?
Who am I to stop you from being happy, even if it's with someone else? Who am I to put my feelings before your happiness?
The truth is that I'm no one.
I'm no one to you anymore. I'm your past and no longer part of your future.
I'm just someone that you used to know and you used to love. I’m someone that you share some memories with.
I won't lie to you, I'm still completely in love with you. I may always love you in away.
But by being so in love with you, I'm able to let you go. I’m able to let you move on with your life.
I want you to be happy more than I want anything else, and I couldn't make you happy.
So, now you’ll move on without me.
You'll find someone completely amazing (because that is what you deserve) that will make you happier than you've ever been.
And I will accept that and be happy for you. Because all I want is your happiness, despite where I am in that equation.
I would do anything to make you happy, including letting you go.
Don't worry about me. My pain isn't something you can control or get rid of, but your unhappiness is.
So, be happy for the both of us.
Move on and be happy. Find the love of your life, and live your life.
That’s all I’d ever ask of you and all I’ll ever want from you.
I’m not the one, so go out and find her.
I'm no longer your problem or your concern. What we had is over, and I’ve accepted that.
It's not your job to coddle me or put my feelings before your own. It’s not your job to let me down easy.
Don’t put your life on hold to make this less painful for me than it undoubtedly will be. Don’t pretend that this will eventually work out or that there’s a possibility for us.
Don’t make me be the thing that hinders you in life.
I can’t make you happy. I’ll never be exactly what you want or need. Us being together is an endless battle and I don’t want to fight for the rest of my life.
I don’t want you to have to fight. I don’t want to be the reason that you’re not happy.
I don’t want to wake up one day and have you resent me for not letting you be happy.
I want you to remember me just like this. I want you to remember me as the girl that loved you so much, she put you first and let you go.
The girl who painfully said goodbye so you could find a forever type of love. The girl that would do anything to see you happy.
So, who am I to stand in your way?
I’m the girl that will always love you. I’m the girl that will always put your happiness above her own.
I’m the girl that has your past and high hopes for your future.
I’m the girl that would never dream of standing in your way.
