The circumstances
They’re killing me.
I feel like a fish
Lost out at sea.
Don’t know which way
I should turn
And everyone’s so dang concerned

Trying to run
My life
They think they’re
Teaching me the best
But I got to make
My own mistakes
And find my way through the rest

No one can
Live life for me
So tell me
Why do they try
All the bickering
Isn't necessary
Feel like I’m
about to die

Just let me do me
And you all gone and
Do what ya’ll do
Because I’m no longer a child
And you aren't gone play me like a fool

I’ve got a mind
Of my own
No telling what
I can be
I’ve got arms that can reach
Out beyond infinity

So just leave me alone
Because the final decision
Now that’s, all up to me
I’m simply tryna tell you
