Cymphonique – Only You Can Be You lyrics

Hey you, what's the matter?
Lately you've been looking down.
Is that someone in the mirror the
The reason you don't come around?
(That's crazy.)
This isn't the "you" I know.
(Feeling un-pretty.)
Puttin' on a show.
(You don't wanna be a wannabe.)
So who you really gonna be?

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)

You think you ain't got swagger.
Gotta be cooler than you are.
I think whatever,
Let 'em know that you're a star.
(Be crazy.)
Be who you wanna be.
(No maybe's.)
You're a celebrity.
(You don't wanna be a wannabe)
Show them who you're gonna be.

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)

Rap:
If you love who you are, put
Your hands up.
You feelin' good 'bout yourself?
Then stand up.
You independent and you're strong
Throw your hands up.
You feelin' fabulous
Put your hands up.
You could be you, I could be me.
You a star if you ain't on tv.
You tall, you short, you different, you cute.
You light, you dark, you beautiful, you, you.

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
And You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)

    I think this means your perfect the way you are with your flaws and your differences. It tells yout that its ok to be different. Its ok to be you. Don't be afraid to show off the true inner beauty you have hidden. Let em know that youre ready to let it shine. Don't try to be something youre not, be happy for who you are in life. Who knows maybe just maybe being you can get far. Really far. Enjoy every second of youre wild ride!

    I believe this song means that you souldnt try to be someone else cuz there cool or popular. It means that your popular in your own way, your own you, and nobody can change that cuz ther not you.
    I always thought that I would be looked down at cuz of the funky tall socks I wear, but it turns out all my friends like my socks and they told me. If I didn't wear tall socks, well I just wouldnt be me! I have my own personality and nobody elses is the same!

    What this song means is that you should never change who you are just to fit in with the "in crowd" make ur own fashion statement, don't try to dress like everyone else wear zebra striped pants and bright neon shirts, be who you are! "only you can be you only i can be me, you always wanna be what your not cant you be happy with what you got? " take a chance on being different. You were born to be different not to be like everyone else :))

    Self-evidently, the meaning of this song is: "can't you be happy with what you got/you're perfect the way you are/with your insecurites, doubts and scars. /life's to short to worry/ don't you know its true/ only you can be you/only i can be me. " if that's not enough then, its saying that people are so caught up trying to be "perfect" they don't realize they themselves are already "perfect" and they should be happy with themselves regardless of others's opinion. But you are the only you.

    Only you can be you. You heard it yourself. Only be you no one can change you. Keep your self humour so no one can top that even if they try that hard. You can only be your wonderful, creative, beautiful/handsome self. Keep that in mine so if anyone is trying to be you tell them to back off. Don't be doubtful of what you don't have but be true to yourself. You might not be a star on tv but that day might even come true to you so stay self confident.
