I Want To Be

If only I could just be someone
If only I was recognised
If only I had an opinion
And if I did that it was mine
If I could only get attention
If I could only have my time
If only I had an idea
And if I did that it was mine

I could go on
To be someone
To be anyone at all
I could go on
To be someone
To be anyone

You see

I want to be
What they tell me to be
All the things that I see
The superficial belief
They want me chasing the name
They’ve got me playing the game
They’ve got me aiming to be
They’ve got me craving to be

I’ve got me aching to be

Anybody but me

If I could just find aspiration
If only I knew how to try
If I could only have a passion
And if I did, it could be mine
If only I could just get noticed
If I could only learn to fly
If only I knew how to beat the shame
If I did, it could be mine

I could go on
To be someone
To be anyone at all
I could go on
To be someone
To be anyone

You see

I want to be
What they tell me to be
All the things that I see
The superficial belief
They want me chasing the name
They’ve got me playing the game
They’ve got me aiming to be
They’ve got me craving to be

I’ve got me aching to be

Anybody but me
