I Don't Want To Be

Gavin Degraw

I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think in me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't wanna be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by a identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one to notice?
I can't be the only one who's learned

I don't wanna to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think in me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't wanna be anything other than me

Can I have everyone's attention please
See, not like this and that
You're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
My whole situation made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think in me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I got do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't wanna be anything other than me
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
