(VERSE ONE)

I've always tried to be someone else

Tried to fit in with the crowd

I changed my face, my hair, and what I wear

To blend in with my friends (yeah)

(Chorus)

But through everyday

I seem to be farther away

From what they want me to be

And I've learned (yeah, yeah)

All I've ever got to be is…me

(VERSE TWO)

As I begin to show myself

For the first time

Some of my friends begin to walk away

But the better ones stay

(Chorus)

And through everyday

I seem to be farther away

From what they want me to be

But I've learned (yeah, yeah)

All I've ever got to be is…me

(VERSE THREE)

Some of them may make fun of the real me

But from far away I glimpse their jealousy

Cause some of them would rather be me

(Chorus)

And through everyday

I seem to be farther away

From what they wanted me to be

But I've learned (yeah, yeah)

All I've ever got to be is…me

(VERSE FOUR)

They're afraid to step out of their cliques

To show themselves as individuals

They say to be popular you must be like them

But I'd rather stand out

(Chorus)

And through everyday

I seem to be farther away

From what they wanted me to be

But I've learned (yeah, yeah)

All I've ever got to be is…me

Yeah, I've learned (I've learned)

I've only got to be….me


I really liked this song, because it's so true! So often we start doing what our friends do, so we'll fit in. When really we only have to be ourselves. If our friends our truly our friends they'll still be our friends!
