You’re lying there trying to find yourself
But you don’t know where to look
You put on a new shirt change your hair
You look different
You want to be different
No matter how hard you try
There’s always someone better to become
Or try and become
And everyone is saying you’re unique and special
In your own way
But what if you just want to be like everyone else
For once
