Original track by Blue Hawaii off of their 2013 album 'Untogether'


I watch as my big dreams walk behind me,
they trick, they scheme they tease
felt like as a young girl I barely knew exactly
What I wanna be, what I wanna be, what I wanna be, what I wanna be

And as the real world comes to its feet
to shake me hand to greet
with calmness and eloquence, I'm never tired,
to in distress
What I'm supposed to be,
What I try to be
What I thought I'd be
What I'll never be

May as well just be me

All I wanted was a need
to be wanted
not forgotten
(the bombs were fired into the night
my mind prepares for flight
with fearlessness and confidence
I dream myself above the rest
not supposed to be
what I shouldn't be
what I couldn't be
only try to be)

May as well just be me


from Lost EP, track released August 2, 2017
