Who I am

YOU SAY THAT I’M NO GOOD
NO GOOD FOR ANYTHING
YOU SMOTHER ALL MY DREAMS
MAKE MY HOPES STILL BORN
TRY TO CONTROL ALL THAT I AM
KEEP ME UNDER YOUR THUMB
BUT I’M READY TO CHANGE
YOU’D BETTER WATCH YOUR BACK

THE WORDS YOU USE TWIST AND TURN
ALL MY DREAMS YOU SPURN
MY LIFE’S AN OPEN BOOK
DON’T TELL ME WHO I AM

THOSE WORDS YOU SAY TO ME
I NOW SEE THROUGH THEM ALL
ALONE THEY MAKE NO SENSE
BUT TOGETHER THEY CONTROL
THOSE WORDS YOU SAY TO ME
I NOW SEE THROUGH THEM ALL
IF YOU SAY NOTHING NOW
THEY LET YOU LIVE TO CRAWL

THE WORDS YOU USE TWIST AND TURN
ALL MY DREAMS YOU SPURN
MY LIFE’S AN OPEN BOOK
DON’T TELL ME WHO I AM


WHO I AM

THE WORDS YOU USE TWIST AND TURN
ALL MY DREAMS YOU SPURN
MY LIFE’S AN OPEN BOOK
DON’T TELL ME WHO I AM


MY LIFE IS NOT FOR YOU TO JUDGE
DON’T CRAWL INSIDE MY HEAD
TELL ME WHAT TO THINK
I KNOW WHAT YOU NEED INSTEAD.
