Lyrics
Treated you as a friend so I let you in,
Yet you tried to change me never even stopped to understand me
You introduced weird ideas into my head,
tried to so-called cultivate me, more like brainwash me

I never understood why I listened to you,
perhaps it's cos I felt out of the crowd
Cos when I look into the mirror,
I couldn't recognize myself so much I begin to hate myself

Fashion, trends and desires,
And things I never knew, I don't want to know no more
Things I thought I knew, I no longer know no more
And ideas, and thoughts that I don't care

I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else

You wrote the rules the way you wanted it,
Expected me, to follow faithfully,
You introduced wild ideas into my head,
Said it was okay, to express myself

I never understood why I heeded your advice,
now I feel my mind is in fright,
Cos when I look into the mirror
I couldn't recognize myself so much I begin to hate myself

Fashion, trends and desires,
And things I never knew, I don't want to know no more
Things I thought I knew, I no longer know no more
And ideas, and thoughts that I don't care

I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
(whom you feel close to deep down inside)
I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
(when I dun even recognise myself)
I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
(I just don't wanna be someone else)

Good hook. Nice vocal, like the way you mixed up the instrumentation from section to section.
I liked the piano part especially. Nice job overall.

Was
looking at the rain out the window at work while listening to the intro and it really connected with me. Yep the piano part is great as is the vocal. It's a very listenable tune.

Oh Boy
I can relate to these lyrics based on a previous relationship. You've hit the nail on the head there. Well done. Loved the piano intro. Might have been good to spread the piano bits around in the song more rather than have it so much front ended as it was quite a while before the vocals came in, ( just a thought!). Cheers Mark
