"Something That I'm Not" as written by and Andrew Meunier Steve Miller....
I keep thinking there's something I'm supposed to do
I keep searching but I'll never measure up to you
I hate the way that you always have something to say
Yeah I can bend but I won't break for what you're willing to pay

Maybe I'm not meant to be, all the things you want from me
Isn't it enough to just believe what we've got is enough?
Maybe I'm not meant to be, inside all the dreams you're dreaming
I can totally feel you changing me, into something that I'm not

I'm getting tired of you playing me like a fool
I thought I'd land in the skies when I aimed for you
I find myself coming up short everytime
If you can't see me standing here love then you're blind
Open your eyes

Maybe I'm not meant to be, all the things you want from me
Isn't it enough to just believe what we've got is enough?
Maybe I'm not meant to be, inside all the dreams you're dreaming
I can totally feel you changing me, into something that I'm not

I feel the pressure in my life, I feel you closing in on me
I feel you closing in on me

Maybe I'm not meant to be, all the things you want from me
Isn't it enough to just believe what we've got is enough?
Maybe I'm not meant to be, inside all the dreams you're dreaming
I can totally feel you changing me, into something that I'm not

I can start to feel you changing me, into something that I'm not
I can start to feel you changing me, into something that I'm not
And I can totally feel you changing me, into something that I'm not
And I can totally feel you changing me, into something that I'm not

    General Commentgreat song.

    i do have som small corrections, though:
    I keep thinking there's something I'm supposed to do
    I keep searching but I'll never measure up for you
    I hate the way that you always have something to say
    Yeah I can bend but I won't break for what you're willing to pay

    Maybe I'm not meant to be all the things you want from me
    Isn't it enough to just believe what we we've got is enough?
    Maybe I'm not meant to be inside all the dreams you're dreaming
    I can slowly feel you changing me into something that I'm not

    I'm getting tired of you playing me like a fool
    I thought I'd land in the skies when I aimed at you
    I find myself coming up short every time
    If you can't see me standing here love then you're blind
    Open your eyes

    Maybe I'm not meant to be all the things you want from me
    Isn't it enough to just believe what we we've got is enough?
    Maybe I'm not meant to be inside all the dreams you're dreaming
    I can slowly feel you changing me into something that I'm not

    I feel the pressure in my life
    I feel you closing in on me
    I feel you closing in on me

    Maybe I'm not meant to be all the things you want from me
    Isn't it enough to just believe what we we've got is enough?
    Maybe I'm not meant to be inside all the dreams you're dreaming
    I can slowly feel you changing me into something that I'm not

    I can start to feel you changing me into something that I'm not (x2)
    And I can slowly feel you changing me, into something that I'm not (x2)
