Reflections

They say you tell me who I am
Who I will be
And if i've got what it takes
Somewhere inside I get this feeling
I'm not perfect

(Chorus)But something steps in
I begin to feel that you don't define me.
You don't define me
You can't tell me who I am
Deep inside I have to learn to ignore the stories
You make in my mind
You make me less than what I should ever be

Destruction sets in
You've got me once again
My mind underneath your hold
Why can't I let go?
Somehow i'm not good enough
I don't measure up to that girl
When I look at you, I see shame
Beauty is invisible

(Chorus) But something steps in
I begin to feel that you don't define me.
You don't define me
You can't tell me who I am
Deep inside I have to learn to ignore the stories
You make in my mind
You make me less than what I should ever be

Why can't I be who I want to be?
Is it you thats always told me?
Something I want to be is something that I will never see.
Maybe I should be who I am
Trying to accept leaves me empty
Filling me with more doubt than before
I want so much to be happy
This is something I can't ignore

(Chorus)But something steps in
I begin to feel that you don't define me.
You don't define me
You can't tell me who I am
Deep inside I have to learn to ignore the stories
You make in my mind
You make me less than what I should ever be
