They can play 'let's pretend'
Make out like they're my best friend
Telling their lies
And they can scheme behind my back
Make fiction not a fact
Try to re-write my life

But they ain't got a clue
If I were in their shoes
I'd shut right up

Take me as I am
Or not at all
I ain't ever gonna change myself for no one
No compromise
'Cause it's my life
It's all or nothing.

They can laugh all they like
Got no need to justify

I am who I am
And they can do their worst if they dare
If it makes them happy we don't care
It's out of their hands

'Cause they ain't got a clue
If we were in their shoes
We'd shut right up

Take us as we are
Or not at all
We ain't ever gonna change ourselves for no one
No compromise 'cause it's our life
It's all or nothing.

Take me as I am
Or not at all
I ain't ever gonna change myself for no one
No compromise 'cause it's my life
It's all or nothing

    it means she just have to be her
    and won't change herself for no one
    and for her to be accepted for who she really is
