Let me tell you something that you don't know
Living this way ain't easy all the time
You might think you know me, but you don't know
There's things about me that you never see

Pre-chorus
(If I told you) If I told you sometimes
I'm just so tired that I can't even get out of bed
(If I told you) Sometimes they want me to be
Some other person and I just don't know where to begin so

Chorus
Take me to a place
Where there's nobody telling me how to be
Just let me
Be myself for a minute I don't wanna be no one else

Everywhere I go I gotta nod and smile
I feel like I'm a puppet on a string
But I have bad days just like everyone
And I'll tell you I ain't perfect all the time (no, no)

Pre-chorus (with ad libs)

Chorus

Somebody take me to the place
I can just be myself
It's just one of those days I'm tired
Yeah I just wanna be alone

(If I told you) If I told you sometimes
I get so angry that I just wanna scream and shout (heeey! )
(If I told you) If I told you sometimes
It gets so hard that I could just walk away from it all (oh oh oh)

Chorus (with ad libs) x4

Don't wanna be no one, no one else, oh
Walk away from it all! (yeah)

If I told you sometimes
I get so angry that I just wanna scream and shout
Sometimes they want me to be
Some other person and I just don't know where to begin
