Why Can't I Be Me

I look in the mirror
The face I see is not my own.
There's a stranger looking back,
Someone I have never known.

She's a child of my parents,
And she does what she is told;
Her choices made by those around,
But her heart is dead and cold.

CH.
Why can't I be me?
Why can't I make my own choice?
Why can't I be free,
From what I'm told, I'm to be?
Why can you not see
That I have to find my own voice?
Why can't I be me?
Why can't I be me?


I glance in the mirror
And wonder who she is,
And from the look in her eyes
I wonder if she lives.

She kept my parents happy
While she killed my soul inside.
She strived to keep the peace
And my heart has slowly died.
(repeat chorus)

I look in the mirror
And make a choice this day:
The stranger looking back
Will have to go away.

I'm sorry if my parents hurt
By my choosing to be me.
But i have to do this now,
Before I die completely.

I have to be me.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
