"Be Yourself" as written by Enrique M Iglesias and Paul Michael Barry....
Well I am, what I am, what I am, could be who you are?
Is your pain, when you smile 'cause you built a wall around your heart?
Do the thoughts in your head keep you up 'cause you feel alone?
And are you strong enough to be yourself?

My papa used to say
You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes
Mama used to say
All that loud music you play ain't gonna get you nowhere

Na naa, you gotta be yourself
Na naa, you gotta be yourself

If you cried, would you hide?
Would you want all the world to know?
And if you believe in love, would you let it show?
Are you in, are you hip, are you cool?
Do you try too hard?
Or are you strong enough to be yourself?
Wait

My papa used to say
You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes
Mama used to say
All that loud music you play ain't gonna get you nowhere

My papa used to say
You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes
Mama used to say
All that loud music you play ain't gonna get you nowhere

Na naa, you gotta be yourself
Na naa, you gotta be yourself

If you can't, can't oh, be yourself, what are you living for?
If you can't, can't oh, be yourself, you're gonna lose it all
If you can't, can't oh, be yourself, what are you living for?
You're gonna find someday, you gotta run away
You gotta run, run, run, run away

My papa used to say
You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes
Mama used to say
All that loud music you play ain't gonna get you nowhere

Na naa, you gotta be yourself
Na naa, you gotta be yourself
Na naa, you gotta be yourself
Na naa, you gotta be yourself

    General CommentE said that he sings about things that happen in his own life. I am wondering if this is what he really heard as he was growing up. If this is look at how talented he has become and how strong of a person and artist he is.
