World Full of Fakes

In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.
Is it too much for me to take on,
should I just back up and,
become one of you?
I feel like my life would be easier,
if I was one of you,
if I looked liked you,
if I talked like you,
or at least tried to.
In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.
I have already lost everyone I used to know,
everyone I used to love,
everyone I used to be,
to the world of the fakes,
and I feel like I'm all alone.
All alone,
in this world full of fakes,
oh! Why can't it be real!
Would be easier to just become one of you?
Follow down the footsteps of people past..
In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.
