Life has come a long way since yesterday I say
And it's not the same old thing over again I say
Just do what you feel and don't you fool yourself I say
Cause I can't make you happy unless I am I say I say I

Got to be true to myself got to be true to myself

Day in day out I've asked many questions I say
Only to find the truth it never changes I say
If you don't deal with it it keeps killing you a little by little I say
Call me selfish if you will my life I alone can live I say I say I

Got to be true to myself got to be true to myself

I don't care if it hurts I'm tired of lies and all these games
I've reached a point in life no longer can I be this way
Don't come crying to me I too have she'd my share of tears
I'm moving on yes I'm grooving on well I'm finally free I've

Got to be true to myself got to be true to myself
Got to be true to myself got to be true to myself
