I tried to live my life like you
Just the way you showed me
Did anything you wanted me to
And tried to be all I could be
I listened to what you say
Listened but you wanted too much
I've done everything you say
Done everything but it's never enough

Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I am not super human
Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I can't be more than a man

I used to want to be like you
Just so pure and amazing
But I never would've had a clue
Just what you would make me
I listened to what you say
Listened but you wanted too much
I've done everything you say
Done everything but it's never enough

Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I am not super human
Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I can't be more than a man

Rising up high you'd think I'm in the clouds
I've never had wings so watch me fall down
The scars are the wounds that I cannot heal
Sick of being admired for things that aren't real
Thought I was strong but that slipped away
My path isn't clear and it's riddled in gray
Nowhere to run and no place to hide
Everything feels like a waste of time

Slowly I'm starting to bend
Never will I fade these things cannot erase me
The promises I made continue to chase me

I don't have bulletproof skin
The shell I'm in has now begun to crack
I fall to ground and it breaks my back

I tried to live my life like you
I used to want to be like you

Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I am not super human
Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I can't be more than a man

Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I am not super human
Take a look and see I can't be perfect
I can't be more than a man
