She just wants me to be like somebody else
So she can keep me from becoming my true self
Don't wanna have to change my own identity
Or be some body else's personality

Pre-Chorus:
Where is everyone's originality
Where can it be
I'm not ashamed of what I believe
Cause now is not eternity

Chorus:
Oh I'm not gonna be like everyone else
I ask you not to take it personal
I don't have to be under anyone's spell
I said I wanna be original
I just wanna be free,
Have my own identity
No need to be the next big thing
I'm gonna be the next me
She can talk about me never to my face
She thinks that she can try to put me in my place
I wont even let her try to play that hand
Cause I wanna be the bigger one I gotta a bigger plan

Bridge:
That boy, that girl... don't need 'em now
Those shoes that shirt... don't need 'em now
That group, this club... don't need 'em now
Take all these things and cut all these strings
For all the pain and all that it brings
Don't wanna be fake
Oh what mistake cause that's not me
