Let Me Be Me, Give Me That Chance

I tell myself not to hide,
but then you come along
and my true self is deprived
I think to myself, 'I'll do better next time'

but you come along again
and take over my mind.
How do you do this?
take over my life?

making me miss
all my goals
I'm not myself
I'm beaten with poles.

Why do you have so much control?
I worry about pleasing you
and become the bad girl.
I'm never myself whenever you're around

and all it's doing
is pushing me to the ground.
I feel so insecure
whenever I'm with you

and I'm sure
I don't know what to do.
My goal in life
is not to please you

so please don't push me
to be who I'm not
please can't you like me
the way I am?

Please don't try to change me
or take over my life
why can't you see
you only cause me strife?

Let me be myself, I know that you will see
You'll like me better
when I'm truly being me.
