I find myself
I'm just awastin' my time away
No matter what I do
It always ends up the same
One minute moves
Into the next
My life was simple but now it's complex
And it doesn't seem to mean anything at all

And everything I wanna be
Is just another silly dream, you see
But I'll keep dreaming just the same

Sometimes it's hard to be me
When people stand in my way
I get so easily discouraged
Well, what can I say
They try to mess you up
They try to push you around
They'll do anything
To bring you down
I'm not gonna be
Stuck in mediocrity
When everybody's trying to bring me
Back down to reality
Oh, why can't they see
Just how much this means to me
Maybe one day I'll be special
I'll be special

It means nothing
It means everything
It means something to me
What you tryin' to say
I'm not gonna play
in this little game
That you have created for me
Then had your chance to do
What you needed to
And now it's time for me to step right up and
Spin that wheel
This time's for real

It's not gonna work this time
Cuz in the end it's going to be mine
There's no need for me to stay
Cuz everything is gonna go my
My way
My way, my way
My way
My way, my way

    My InterpretationIt's about how we keep dreaming even though our dreams may be silly to others.
