Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman


I tell you I have something on my mind, but you never listen to me
I try to tell you my dreams that you can’t accept
Every time I go right, why do you go left?
Why don’t you care about me?
You’re breaking me
You’re, you’re breaking me

Mom, I’ve tried so hard to make you proud
But all you’ve ever wanted, is just not for me (ohhh)
For me (whoa)

It’s so hard when I love you so much,
Lately things haven’t been easy between us,
There’s a whole battlefield unfolding
Don’t make me pick a team, nooooo
You’re, You’re breaking me

You tell me I’m wasting my time
I just like to take in each day
Why am I suddenly wrong if I don’t see things your way?
Just let me be (whoahh)
Just let me be

Though you say I live too much, I
I’m just beginning to open my eyes
Just beginning to open my heart
This is just the start, of a new beginning

I really want you to be in it
Will you take me as I am?
If not just let me be (whoahh), just let be

I’m not waiting for the storm between us to go away
I’ll be outside dancing in the rain
I’ll be living for myself, no strings attached
I’m sick of you always holding me back, from being me (whoahh)

So many words just left unsaid
I can feel us growing apart, no turning back
Mom I’ll always love you, I’ll give you that
Just wish you could see things in my perspective, It’s not half bad

Though you say I live too much, I
I’m just beginning to open my eyes
Just beginning to open my heart
This is just the start, of a new beginning,
I want you to be in it,
There’s no turning back
Take me as I am.
