Verse 1
You see those preppy girls, in high tied ponytails
Along with mini skirts and shirts that show too much skin
They have their boyfriends, who slave on all of them
But that’s not me I’ll never be one of them

Chorus
I’m gonna break loose, be free
I don’t need anyone telling me what to be
Break down, scream out
All I wanna do is just be me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, just be me

Verse 2
I’m sick of all these cliques, people always labeling
Kids are living by what others tell them to be
You can only act like this, you can only dress in these
You shouldn’t let anybody tell you what to be

Chorus
I’m gonna break loose, be free
I don’t need anyone telling me what to be
Break down, scream out
Cause all I wanna do is just be me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, just be me

Verse 3
And if people rag on me, for not following
The guidelines of their perfect society
All I can really say is that I’m so sorry
That I don’t want to be another mindless zombie

Chorus
I’m gonna break loose, be free
I’m not afraid to show the one true only me
I break down, scream out
All I wanna do is just be me
Run around, scram and shout
Don’t be afraid to let your true colors come out
You know it’s completely true,
All you gotta do is just be you
Yeah, yeah

I hope that this piece will inspire others to be true to themselves and to not be ashamed of who they are.
