Where Are They?
Sunshine shed your light on me
Reveal the path I should be following
I'm trying to find it, I've gone off road
Seen some people I will never know like me.
They just put a barrier up
Trying to cover their hearts with nonsense of
Being a fan of the biggest band
Wearing the clothes that they truly find drab
And I wonder why they try to be
Pleasing to the majority
Not themselves, to hell!
Don't be who you are
'Cause no one will like you
Unless you are, who you aren't.
So where I've been hasn't worked for me
'Cause everyone wants me to not be me
There's no one like me
I'm truly unique
But in other words I happen to be just plain me
I like it that way Though it's a pretty lonely life
Trying to discover people alright
Personally I think It's too much work to pretend
To be some annoying kid's best friend
Though it's up to you
Send my regards to your heart so bruised.
Sunshine is it really your fault?
Maybe it's the people who've got it all wrong
Thinking that they shouldn't be just themselves
Not letting out emotions so dear and heartfelt.
Warm up their hearts
Kindle a fire
'Cause would-be best friends aren't
Here to be hired
Not to be bought
But made as you sought
Someone to understand you
And open your heart.
