lyrics

Eager to start, afraid to begin
I let the old feelings out as the new ones sink in
Ready to fight, willing to negotiate
They said "Leave it to him", so I left it to fate
They said "Leave it to him", so I left it too

I've never been wise, no that just isn't me
But I've almost escaped all this lingering naivete
And I may be a fool, but I'll stay who I am
'Cause it's even more foolish to stop and start over again

You'll never break me down
You'll never make me learn
Oh no, no

I, I won't accept the norm,
You can't make me conform
That just isn't me
I'm all I'll ever be
I'm all you'll ever see when you look my way
So do me a favor and don't look my way

Sometimes I'm wrong, but I try to be right
And I'd say that I'm different if saying that wasn't so trite
So I keep to myself, I guess that's all I can do
I won't spend my whole life tryna satisfy the likes of you
I won't spend one more minute tryna satisfy

You'll never break me down
You'll never make me learn
Oh no, no

I, I won't accept the norm,
You can't make me conform
That just isn't me
I'm all I'll ever be
I'm all you'll ever see when you look my way
So do me a favor and don't look my way
