      D   A    D6  E            [2X; 12-string enters 2nd time]
      / / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

        D              E      D          E
      Please don't mistake me or try to make me
            D        E       A
      The shadow of anybody else
      D            E      D              E
      I ain't the him or her you think I am
                D      E            A
      I'm just trying hard to be myself
                E                     A
      Though society's goal is to be part of the whole
                 D                       E
      That may sound good to you, not to me


      Let me be, let me be
          D            E
      To think like I want to
      Let me be, let me be
              D        E
      That's all I ask of you
        D                       C#m   Bm     [1,2: repeat intro  3: to coda]
      I am what I am and that's all I ever can be

Verse 2:

      Don't try to plan me or understand me
      I can't stand to be understood
      I could never give in to or ever live up to
      Being like you think I should
      I've got some inner need that I'm tryin' to heed
      I can't take hand-me-down destiny

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

      Don't try to change me or rearrange me
      To satisfy the selfishness in you
      I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day
      And I'm not a pawn to be told how to move
      I'm sorry I ain't the fool you thought would play by your rules
      A to-each-is-own philosophy

[repeat chorus]



                     D     E       A
      I said that's all I ever can be   [repeat to fade]
