Why Can't ( I Be Who I Want To Be )

Why cant

I be Who i want to be

why cant

the world see me more clearly why cant they open up their eyes

and stop telling me

who they want me to be



Ive always been someone different

then who they think

i am always afraid

they'll see that im weak



so

why cant i shine

why cant i show

who i really am

inside



ba dat da da da

ba dat da da da



why cant i shine

why cant i show

who i really am

inside



I know theres someone out there

who will see my light

i'm just wondering

when they'll see it shining bright



eventually they'll see it

like a light house in the fog

and like a wave upon the rocks

they'll crash into me



well

Ba dat da da da

Ba dat da da da



why cant i shine

why cant i show

who i really am

inside



I might be just a girl

so quite on the outside

I might not be that someone

your looking for



but i dont care about that now

im gonna show who i am

im gonna be that someone

i want to be



Well

ba dat da da da

ba dat da da da



I will learn to fly

over the mountainside

I will learn to live

on the bottom of the ocean



Well

ba dat da da da

ba dat da da da

ba dat da dat da dat da da da
