Free to be me

I wanna be Free to be Me
Not what you want or expect me to be
I’m gonna come out of my shell
Be alive and well
Break out of my skull not be dull
I wanna soar and glide like a gull
high in the sky feel alive

I should smile and be kind
Not closed in behind a grin
When there’s no shades of grey
And everything’s grim
Not just a bad day

If I don’t pass their test
They’ll think I’m a pest
Pass judgment on me
I’ll pass judgments on them
It’s their fault
I’m condemmed

But it’s my fault too
I listened
To all the wrong things
Made bad decisions
Now I’m in prison
But I’m gonna get free
To be nice
Sociable Me
Get comfort in this skin
I’m gonna win

You are you
I am me
Just let it be.
