All of my friends stick up their noses
They ask me where my money is
And where does it go once I've spent it

But I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be

And even my own mother asks me a lot of questions
I tell her I don't want to talk
But she doesn't stop, she's just wondering

But I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be

I want you, you, you, you
I want you, you, you, you

'Cause when I wake up in the morning or the middle of the night
I wonder who's there and what they've said
Yeah, when I wake up in the morning or the middle of the night
I wonder who's there and what they've said
But when I wake up in the morning or the middle of the night
I look at you and I know it's alright
I wake up in the morning or the middle of the night
I look at you and I know it's alright

'Cause you don't want me to be
How they want me to be
You don't want me to be
How they want me to be

And I don't want to be how they want me to be
I don't want to be how they want me to be
You don't want me to be how they want me to be
I don't want me to be how they want me to be
