I'm not who you want me to be

I'm not who you want me to be

Turn me into a puppet

I'll do as I'm told

Perform your little dance,

Watch the story unfold

You don't love me for me,

Only what I can do.

You don't want me as myself,

Only a copy of you.

So I'll put on a mask-

Go and make you proud,

Set my ambition aside,

I'll be a face in the crowd
