People have always compared me to you...
They have said I am inferior to you so many times,
I start to believe it.
I know that I could never fill your shoes
That I was a horrible replacement.
Besides, how do you leave a person you've known so long
Behind in the dust?
If they are loved and prestigious,
How can you ever match up to them?
How will everyone react to you
If you suddenly take their place in the scheme of things?
They will say that he did this or that better,
Or that you can never take their place.
Even if I was on center stage,
If you were there, everyone would turn to you.
I used to idolize you,
But I can't ever be you.
People equate me with you so much now,
That I've lost my self-identity.
I'm always called your replacement
Or the guy that isn't as good and popular as he is.
All this time,
I know I never did anything for myself.
Someone always related to you was pulling me in the right direction,
Moving the strings of the pitiful puppet.
