I'll never paint the world if I use Da Vinci's brush
I'll never write like Dylan if I'm always in a rush
I'll never help the world by passing on the blame
I'll never help the world by keeping it the same

Chorus
I'm no one else but me
I can't pretend to be another carbon copy
I'm no one else but me
I can't pretend to be another carbon copy

I'll never play like Jordan 'cause my feet don't fit his shoes
I'll never write like Mozart because I only know the blues
I'll never know the world from a book up on the shelf
I'll never know the world if I never know myself

Chorus

Oh and I get my inspiration from the best
When I'm around you
Oh and I give it all I got and nothing less
It's true

    General CommentNo one wants to be the same, everyone wants to make a mark on the world. We cant pretend to be all the same because we are all not the same. We cant pretend to be someone we're not because we all are different.
