who i am

I’m lost in this world
Where I don’t belong
I know I’m different
But is that so wrong

Is it wrong to be your own person?
Is it wrong to not wanna blend in?
Is it wrong to want to be different?
Why do you look at me as if I’m committing a sin?

See look here
I’m speaking out
See I just don’t wanna be like everyone else
I just wanna be myself
So if you don’t like me the way I am
Well I’m never gonna change
So you just have to deal with it
Cause I’m me and this is who I am

You look at my clothes
My hair, my shoe
You shake your
In disapproval

You look at me and just wanna scream
Because you know you hate me
I don’t care what you say
Cause I’m gonna stay this way


See look here
I’m speaking out
See I just don’t wanna be like everyone else
I just wanna be myself
So if you don’t like me the way I am
Well I’m never gonna change
So you just have to deal with it
Cause I’m me and this is who I am

You look at my nails
Cause their painted black
You look at me like there’s something I lack
But what could it be

My minds set in a whole different world
Cause I try an escape this one
Where I’m known as the misfit girl
And you just don’t approve

You tell me get my head of the clouds
And come back down to earth
But you might understand
If you lived my life

See look here
I’m speaking out
See I just don’t wanna be like everyone else
I just wanna be myself
So if you don’t like me the way I am
Well I’m never gonna change
So you just have to deal with it
Cause I’m me and this is who I am

See this is who I am
Yes this is who I am
Just who I am
