I CAN NEVER BE (WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE)

 

Shooting star across my sky

I wanted to keep you in my heaven

“I’ll be anything you want!” I said

“I will live into your dream just to see you smile”

“Be my baby - I’ll be your crusade

your clown-lover, renegade

I’ll be anything you want if it will make you stay”

- oh, but it could never be that way cause:

 

CHORUS:

I can never be what you want

I can never be what you want be to be

 

The great pretender inside your head

a king wearing someone else’s crown

sacrificed who I am so this heart could be fed

I spend so much time keeping myself underground

You know I love you but I’m shaking inside

I know I’m not going to get out here alive ‘cause:

 

CHORUS:

I can never be what you want

I can never be what you want be to be

I have sailed this impossible ocean

I have sailed this crazy sea

I can never be what you want,

whatever you want be to be

 

There is this spirit rising, rising against

what I have become

I have to come out and choose to stay or make my run

I’m slowly dying, I have to make a stand

I’m coming home, you’ll have to take me for what I am.

 

CHORUS:

 

Be?  I can be?  I can never be!

I can never be what you want!

I can never be what you want be to be!
