"Anything But Me" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
Nobody told me that I'd be in happy places
Just trying to erase the traces
What came before me
A girl that I used to see somewhere very deep
She's falling asleep and I'm trying to wake her said her pray

Now is a never ending thing
One more minute turns into another
Before I've had time to to run from all the other ones
And its so hard to live a dream
When the everything that they want you to be
Is anything but me

So much confusion circling inside my head
What this one and that one said
Its all an illusion
'Cause I'm still the same person no matter how fast I run
I'm trying to hold on to where it is I come from

Now is a never ending thing
One more minute turns into another
Before I've had time to to run from all the other ones
And its so hard to live a dream
When the everything that they want you to be
Is anything but me

Anything but me

I'm trying to hold on to where it is I come from

Now is a never ending thing
One more minute turns into another
Before I've had time to to run from all the other ones
And its so hard to live a dream
When the everything that they want you to be
Is anything but me

    General CommentI'm not sure if they typed up the lyrics correctly but anyway... it's about how she can't be herself because Hollywood or whatever wants her to be something, like an image... which isn't the real her. But she has to hide her inner self in order to not lose it since she's stuck pretending/acting/putting on a facade.
