Gotta Go My Own Way
Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron

GABRIELLA:
Troy Ė listen...

I gotta say whatís on my mind.
Something about us, doesnít seem right... these days.
Life keeps getting in the way.

Whenever we try,
somehow the plan is always rearranged.

Itís so hard to say,
but I gotta do whatís best for me.
Youíll be okay...

Iíve got to move on, and be who I am.
I just donít belong here,
I hope you understand.
We might find a place in this world someday,
but at least for now,
I gotta go my own way.

Donít wanna leave it all behind.
But I get my hopes up and I watch them fall every time.
Another color turns to grey.
And itís just too hard... to watch it all... slowly fade away.

I'm leaving today
Cause I gotta do whatís best for me.
Youíll be okay...

Iíve got to move on, and be who I am.
I just donít belong here,
I hope you understand.
We might find a place in this world someday,
but at least for now,
I gotta go my own way.


TROY:
What about us?
What about everything weíve been through?


GABRIELLA:
What about trust?


TROY:
You know I never wanted to hurt you.


GABRIELLA:
What about me?


TROY:
What am I supposed to do?

GABRIELLA:
I gotta leave but Iíll miss you

TROY (ECHOING):
...miss you.

GABRIELLA LEAD, TROY AD-LIBS:
So Iíve got to move on, and be who I am.
(Troy: why do you have to go)
I just donít belong here,
I hope you understand.
(Troy: trying to understand)
We might find a place in this world someday,
but at least for now,
(Troy: I want you to stay)
I gotta go my own way.

Iíve got to move on, and be who I am.
(Troy: what about us?)
I just donít belong here,
I hope you understand.
(Troy: try to understand)
We might find a place in this 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,

Teen heartthrob!  Excellent performances!

Zac Efron "is an American actor and singer. He began acting in the early 2000s, and became known to young audiences after his roles in the Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical, the WB series Summerland, and the film version of the Broadway musical Hairspray. Speaking to Newsweek in June 2006, director Adam Shankman described Efron as "arguably the biggest teen star in America right now." In 2007, right before the release of High School Musical 2, Rolling Stone declared him the "poster boy for tweenyboppers" and featured him in their late August issue."
