Sometimes I feel like being like everyone else
Most of the time
Not trying to be myself
I hear the voices in my mind
They're telling me right from wrong
I have to read between the lines
To figure out what's right
'Cause nothing's gonna change what I am

To me things are all the same
Still trying to make a name
But I'm happy just being myself
'Cause nothing's gonna change what I am

You may be a big shot
But I'm in a headlock
From trying to fit in with everyone else
Save me from the ensemble headache
Instead of trying to blend
Why not start my own trend
You may be stronger
But I'm a lover
Not a fighter
But you don't control my mind
It's my life
And I'm taking back what's rightfully mine

To me things are all the same
Still trying to make a name
But I'm happy just being myself
'Cause nothing's gonna change what I am
No one's gonna change who I am
'Cause I'm happy just being myself

This song is about me trying to be like everyone else, but later in life I learned that I have to be myself.
