I watch as my big dreams walk behind me
They trick, they scheme, they tease
Felt like as a young girl I barely knew exactly
What I'd wanna be
What I wanna be
What I wanna be
What I wanna be

And as the real world comes to its feet
To shake my hand, to greet
With commonness and eloquence
I'm never tied to in distress
But I'm supposed to be you
And I try to be you
But I thought I'd be you
But I'll never be you

May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.

Mamamamamamamamama...

(All I wanted)
(Was a need)

(To be wanted)
The thoughts revived into the night
My mind prepares for flight

(Was forgotten)
There's fearlessness and confidence
I dream myself above the rest
I'm supposed to be you
But I shouldn't be you
But I couldn't be you
Only try to be you

May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.
May as well just be me.
