Stevie Wonder – I Can Only Be Me lyrics

Butterflies begin from having been another
As a child is born from being in a mother's womb
But how many times have you wished you were some other
Someone than who you are
Yet who's to say if all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you
As I can only be me

Flowers cannot bloom until it is their season
As we would not be here unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces You could anymore be
Loving you that you see
You can only be you
As I can only be

I can only be me

    God made each one of us and we are to value ourselves and others as unique and precious to Him. Made in His image with a purpose and plan. And the most amazing thing even though the outside is beautiful with absolute amazing detail, the inside is too. Especially the spirit, with radiant beauty that each person was gifted upon conception in a combustion of light and spark to be like their beautiful God who made them. I will not look at a person on only the outside anymore. If what pours out is hurt and anger it is my gift to them to show them how to unleash the hurt and let the beauty of the Lord shine in them. We have been lied to for a long time and everyone IS beautiful and transformation is from the inside out, not the outside in. Embrace yourself and others, as will I!
