You Think You Know Me

I'm your best friend but I'm your worst enemy. 
I'm everything I want but I'm nothing I need. 
I'm just like you but I'm better than you. 
I'm clumsy but I'm balanced. 
I'm dumb but I'm smart. 
I'm here but I'm up in the clouds. 
I'm unpredictable but I have a reason for everything.
I'm perfect but I have iniquities.
I'm the best but I'm the worst.
I'm lost but I'm saved.
I'm you but I'm me.
I'm standing still but I'm always moving.
I'm hopeless but I'm optimistic. 
I'm open but I'm reserved.
I'm laughing but I'm crying.
I'm memorable but I'm forgotten.
I'm falling but I'm moving forward.
I'm alone but I'm always with you.

You said forever but you meant never.

    The wording reminds me a bit of the lyrics to "One Hand in My Pocket" by Alanis Morissette. Nevertheless, it is quite descriptive.
