For whatever reason I experienced a lyric-writing kick for a good five months. This first one came to me whie I was at work, which is odd because nothing I do at work could possibly be related to what I'm speaking about in this song...

More Like You

They say you shouldn't try to be somebody you're not
But lately it feels like that's the one thing that I've got
To do
Cause truth is I feel like I should be less like me
And more like You


In most cases I would suggest
That being yourself is the one thing that's best
But sometimes I think we get in the way of ourselves
And put the person we're meant to be on a shelf


More and more, that's all my eyes are seeing
And sadly it has affected my being
Who I am, and I can't help but feeling
That whoever "they" are, they're wrong...


Cause they say you shouldn't try to be somebody you're not
But lately it feels like that's the one thing that I've got
To do
Cause truth is I feel like I should be less like me
And more like You


So sit down, cause there's something I need to confess
When I'm at my worst is when I'm at my best
In my imperfection and all that it entails
Is the only state in which I'm truly myself


More and more, I am losing all my freedom
And in consequence I will continue being
Who I am, but I can't help but feeling
No matter how right it feels, it's wrong...


And they say you shouldn't try to be somebody you're not
But lately it feels like that's the one thing that I've got
To do
Cause truth is, I feel like I should be less like me
And more like You


In this chasm that lies between you and I
It's hard to say if or when I will finally die
To myself, and accept what you'll offer
If I could just let go of who I think I'm supposed to be
My heart is reprimanding me relentlessly
Constantly reminding me that I know better


They say you shouldn't try to be somebody you're not
But lately it feels like that's the one thing that I've got
To do
Cause truth is I feel like I should be less like me
And more like You


So make me more like You
