(Geoffrey Williams and Simon Stirling)

Some people know what they wanna be
Some people see what they wanna see
Everyday needs some kind of dream
But the complexities of life escape to an ideal scene, yeah

People try to tell you how to live your life
Let the blind lead the blind
Well, that's all right
So make up your mind
The fool or the wise
There are things in this life
Which you can't compromise

Break away
And take the time to know your mind
And leave it all behind you
And say
That's the way I am

Yeah - I was born this way
Can't you see it in my eyes
Yeah, heah, heah
Oh, I was born this way
Can't you feel it in your heart
Yeah, heah, heah, oh

It's not always easy to disagree
Don't make excuses for what you see
There's one thing in life
I have no doubt
You're on the way up
On the way out, baby, oh

Some people see what's gonna be
But they hide in a corner
From reality
Sometimes you're up
And sometimes you're down
You can't spend your whole life
Just fooling around

Break away
And take the time to break the ties
And leave it all behind you and say
That's the way I am

Yeah - I was born this way
Can't you see it in my eyes
Yeah, heah, heah
Oh, I was born this way
Can't you feel it in your heart and say
Yeah, heah, heah, oh

In this world
There's a love that's unspoken
Letting go
Reaching out
Then it's time to search your heart
And stop, it's you
Learn to love yourself
Respect yourself
Say - that's the way I am

Say, I was born this way
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah - I was born this way
Can't you see it in my eyes?
Yeah, heah, heah
Oh, I was born this way
Can't you feel it in your hearts and say
Yeah, heah, heah, oh
The fool or the wise
So open your eyes
And say yeah, heah, heah
Yeah - say it loud and clear
And say yeah, heah, heah
I was born this way, oh, oh, oh
Say yeah, heah, heah
I was born this way
Born this way
So say, so say, yeah
I said yeah
