"I Am Me" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
What's she got that I don't have
Does she fill those spaces that I left you
When you wake up every night
Does the scent of regret ever haunt you

(chorus)
Put this under your skin
'cause I am me
And I won't change for anyone but me
And I won't change for anyone,
For anyone... like you

Does the weight of consequence drag you down
Until it pulls you under
And does she lend an eager hand to save you
From the future of being with her
Are you with her?

(chorus)
Put this under her skin
'cause I am me
And I won't change for anyone but me
And I won't change for anyone,
For anyone... like you

Why would I
Why would I change
Why would I change

(chorus)
Put this under your skin
'cause I am me
And I won't change for anyone but me
And I won't change, I won't change

What she got that I don't have?
What she got that I don't have?

    General CommentI think a girl is was with this guy who has this idea of who she should be and she's not given in to it. he is cheatign on her with a girl that's more of what he want. She finds out about the other girl they brake up and now he's regretign that he ever cheated on her in the first place.

    General Commentshes not going to be anybody but herself. she will not change for some guy. it makes me think of myself, as i definately wont change for anyone, regardless with the fact that im not like lots of people [ the ones im around most atleast ]. im just different in a sense, dont exactly "fit" into my atmosphere. its something i have come to accept, but i like screaming this song, letting people know that i surely wont change for anyone. not a guy either!

    General CommentHe left her but obviously she's too good for him and they both know it?
    I like to think that I would tell this song to an ex because he should KNOW that I was the best thing that ever happened to him. If only he agreed with me.

    General Commentno one is going to change you to become someone else. You know who you are, and you're not changing to please others

    General CommentTHIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG BY ASHLEE and it's about how she was with a guy and i guess he dumpred her for another chick...and ashlee doesn't know why....but all she's saying is that maybe he wanted her to change and she isnt going to change for anybody " i am me"

    My InterpretationI agree, this is by far one of Ashlee's best songs.
    I personally think it's about a broken relationship, where the guy left the girl because she wasn't what he wanted. Ashlee's saying that she might be hurt by what happened, but she's not going to change for somebody just because they want her to she's only going to change for herself.

    "Does the weight of consequence drag you down
    until it pulls you under
    and does she lend an eager hand to save you
    from the future of being with her
    Are you with her? "
    She's asking if he made the right decision in choosing this other girl over her, or if he regrets it now.
