~Verse 1~
Don't try to show me the way to be,
To be me,
Don't try to show me just how I am,
I already know.

~Prechorus~
Don't tell me who I am,
And what I can't do.
Don't tell me that,
I'll never make my way through.

~Chorus~
Don't try to tell me just who I am,
You don't know me,
And you won't understand,
What it takes to be me.

Don't try to show me how I should be,
I'm trying to live my own life,
I'm writing my own Destiny.
I'm just me.

~Verse 2~
Don't try to show me the way to act,
Act like me,
Don't try to tell me how to talk,
Talk like me.

~Prechorus~
Don't tell me who I am,
And what I can't do.
Don't tell me that,
I'll never make my way through.

~Chorus~
Don't try to tell me just who I am,
You don't know me,
And you won't understand,
What it takes to be me.

Don't try to show me how I should be,
I'm trying to live my own life,
I'm writing my own Destiny.
I'm just me.

~Bridge~
I'm fighting my way through,
Chasing it all away!
I'm searching for the chance to show 'em,
Who I really am.
I don't need someone telling me who to be,
I'm finding my own way by just being me!

~Ending Chorus~
So go ahead,
Try to tell me just who I am.
Try to get to know me,
And then you'll understand,
Some of what it takes, to be me.

You tried to show me,
How I should be,
Now, start living your life,
Stop writing my Destiny...
Just let me be...

Just let me be me...
Just let me be me...
Just let me be, me.


The author's comments:
I wrote this for all the people, including myself, who feel that they are pressured to be someone they aren't.
Break out guys/girls. This is YOUR day. This is YOUR now. Live it up.
