What if I was alright?
What if I wasn't wound so tight?
What if I had the balls to be bad?
Would you still look at me like that?
Would you be mad that I had held the old me back?

Why can't I be somebody else?
Somebody who isn't too cool to believe it's okay to be just me

Maybe I was too much
Maybe I'll take it down a notch
Maybe I'll have the guts to go mad
Maybe I'll mess me up real bad
Maybe I'll make you wish you had the old me back

Why can't I be somebody else?
Somebody who isn't too cool to believe it's okay to be just me

What if I can't remember who I'm trying to be?

Why can't I be somebody else?
Somebody who isn't too cool to believe it's okay to be just me
Just me...

    General CommentI just love this song...it can relate to alot of people and it's just..pretty!

    I think it's about this person who is trying so damn hard to be something they're not. Trying to change to fit in or impress, and they're finding it difficult because every time thye have to lie about themselves it tears them apart.They get scared that they're going to lose someone they love and care about if they slip up and they find out they'r enot who they think they are.
