Gotta Be Me

Gotta be me.

No one else.

I tried to be,

Someone's clone,

And it gave me an uneven tone.

Gotta be me.

I don't care if you don't like it.

I don't care if you strike it.

This is my life.

And I can't hitchhike it

I probably tried to be you,

But it's not true to me.

I tried to be people in my family.

I can't do that either.

Gotta be me.

Whether it sends you colorless chills,

Or give you scarlet fever.

Gotta be me.

It makes me free,

To be only,

Who I wanna and gotta be,

Me.
