Gavin DeGraw – I Don't Want To Be lyrics
[Verse 1]
I don't need to be anything other
Than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other
Than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other
Than the birth of two souls in one

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Part of where I'm going
Is knowing where I'm coming from

[Hook]
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

[Verse 2]
I'm surrounded by liars
Everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters
Everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis
Everywhere I turn

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Am I the only one who noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned

[Hook]
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

[Bridge]
Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that
You're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain
The crust of creation
My whole situation made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody

[Hook]
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

[Outro]
I don't want to be, yeah, yeah
I don't want to be, oh, ooh
I don't want to be
I don't want to be anything, (anything, anything)
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
