YOU WANT ME TO BE YOU

YOU WANT ME TO BE YOU,

WALK IN YOUR SHOE.

BUT I CAN’T, BECAUSE I’M ME,

AND THAT’S WHO I WANT TO BE.

IF I WORK MY FASTEST,

YOU WANT FASTER.

IF I WORK MY HARDEST,

YOU WANT HARDER.

IF I DO MY BEST,

YOU WANT BETTER.

BUT I CAN’T BE YOU,

BECAUSE YOU’RE BETTER THAN ALL THE REST.

HE IS SO HARD TO PLEASE,

I JUST WANT TO DROP DOWN ON MY KNEES.

LOOK UP AT THE BLUE SKY,

AND ASK GOD HOW AND WHY?

I CAN’T BE WHO HE WANTS ME TO BE,

AND THAT’S WHY FOR SO MANY YEARS MY MIND HASN’T BEEN FREE.

IT’S EATING AT ME.

IT’S ALMOST LIKE WE ARE BEST FRIENDS,

BUT WE BOTH ONLY PRETEND.
BECAUSE BENEATH OUR LAUGHTER AND JOY,

I KNOW TO HIM I’M NOT THAT PERFECT BOY.

IT’S NEVER EASY, IT’S ALWAYS HARD,

THAT’S WHY I ALWAYS PICK THE WRONG CARD.

BECAUSE TO HIM ALL THE CARDS ARE WRONG,

THAT IS WHY I MUST KEEP MY HEAD HIGH, BE ME AND STAY STRONG.
