Lyrics

 

Maybe I should just think it out, close my eyes, press rewind,      

figure out all these scenes in my mind,     

It began years ago, all I wanted was you,           

and I tried to be all that you wanted me to.

 

Now you only ever ask me about,        

the part of my life you have planned out.

 

 Am I who you want me to be,       

or am I just a grown-up girl you never really knew,        

oh I’ve tried all my life to be free                  

hoping that you would love me just for who I really want to be.

 

You and I were always so close, so I thought,              

just as long as I hid all the things that I’m not.       

Then I realized the way that I am with a friend          

I could never show you in the time that we spend.

 

And so I get angry and tough  

I never feel quite good enough.

 

Am I who you want me to be,

or am I just a grown-up girl you never really knew,       

oh I’ve tried all my life to be free                      

hoping that you would love me just for who I really want to be.

 

(piano...) or am I just a grown-up girl you never really knew,

 oh I’ve tried all my life to be free                    

hoping that you would love me just for who I really want to be.
