  • Troy, listen

    I gotta say what's on my mind
    Something about us
    Doesn't seem right these days

    Life keeps getting in the way
    Whenever we try, somehow the plan
    Is always rearranged

    It's so hard to say
    But I've gotta do what's best for me
    You'll be okay

    I've go to move on and be who I am
    I just don't belong here, I hope you understand
    We might find our place in this world someday
    But at least for now, I gotta go my own way (own way)

    Don't wanna leave it all behind
    But I get my hopes up
    And I watch them fall every time

    Another color turns to grey
    And it's just too hard to watch it all
    Slowly fade away

    I'm leaving today
    'Cause I gotta do what's best for me
    You'll be okay

    I've got to move on and be who I am
    I just don't belong here, I hope you understand
    We might find our place in this world someday
    But at least for now, I gotta go my own way

    What about us?
    What about everything we've been through?
    What about trust?
    You know I never wanted to hurt you

    And what about me?
    What am I supposed to do?
    I gotta leave but I'll miss you

    So, I've got to move on and be who I am (why do you have to go?)
    I just don't belong here, I hope you understand (I'm trying to understand)

    We might find a place in this world someday
    But at least for now (I want you to stay)
    I wanna go my own way

    I've got to move on and be who I am (what about us?)
    I just don't belong here, I hope you understand (I'm trying to understand)

    We might find our place in this world someday (world someday)
    But at least for now, I gotta go my own way
    I gotta go my own way
    I gotta go my own way

  • Makayla from Louisville, Kyand when they reunite it was with the help of ryan and kelsi and them because sharpay said that the staff could not participate in the talent show so troy quit but said he would do it if the staff could do the talent show as well. and then ryan said that sharpay switched the songs when she did not and he learned that one instead and when he started singing the girl that sang was not sharpay but gabriella and then the staff joined in with them and they finally kissed at the end!:)
  • Evie from Sweet Valley, PaThis is after Gabriella finds out Sharpay's tryin to get Troy all to herself. She breaks up with him, only to reunite at the talent show.
