I could be mean
I could be angry
You know I could be just like you

I could be fake
I could be stupid
You know I could be just like you

You thought you were standing beside me
Your were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you
You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

I could be cold
I could be ruthless
You know I could be just like you

I could be weak
I could be senseless
You know I could be just like you

You thought you were sitting beside me
Your were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you
You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

On my own, cause I can't take liven with you
I'm alone, so I won't turn out like you
Want me to

You thought you were standing beside me
Your were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you
You thought you were there to guide me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you

I could be mean
I could be angry
You know I could be just like you

    I relate to this song very well. This is my song to my mother. She has tried to control every aspect of my life, and for the most part has succeeded. Everything I want to do, she has stood in the way. She's tried to turn me into a perfect clone of her, and not let me be my own person. I crank it up every time I listen to it. ; P

    He only wants to live his life the way he wants to. Hes saying he can do anything he wants cause it's his own body. And the "Person" is telling him no he can't do that. The "Person" is standing in his way to make sure he does what he was told to be.

    I can relate it to my own life, when my 'friend' Alex, didn't turn out to be such a friend after all. It's an odd connection, but I think the times when he says "I can be mean, I can be stupid, I can be fake" and "I can be cold, I can be just like you" remind me the most of how Alex was.
