The lyrics of "To just be me".

Just like a chameleon
He'd always try and fit right in
He knew the words to say
It was just his way
But later on his own at night
He'd find his mind was in a fight
Who am I supposed to be?
Wonder what it's like to just be me?

Always in his days at school
He'd be the one to play the fool
Though he knew in his heart
He was playing the wrong part
He hid his hopes and dreams away
And wore a mask from day to day
He's never really felt alive
Now he's pushing 45
Who am I supposed to be?
Wonder what it's like to just be me?

What is it you're afraid of
Afraid to be yourself?
Then no one will want to know you
You'll be left upon the shelf/
He hid his hopes and dreams away
And wore a mask from day to day
He's never really felt alive
Now he's pushing 45
Who am I supposed to be?
Wonder what it's like to just be me?

JHe decided he would move away
And live his life a different way
He took up the guitar
And opened up a bar
He left his fears at the door
And at the age of 44
His life has just begun
And he can feel the sun
Who am I supposed to be?
Wonder what it's like to just be me?

Who were you fooling?
No one but yourself
And all the pretending
Was not good for your health
You've taken the mask away
To show the world your face
And now the great pretender
Is no longer in your place

He left his fears at the door
And at the age of 44
His life has just begun
And he can feel the sun
Who am I supposed to be?
Wonder what it's like to just be me?
