Shooting star across my sky
I wanted to keep you in my heaven
"I will be anything you want!" I said
"I will live into your dream just to see you smile"
"Be my baby -- I'll be your crusade
Your clown-lover, renegade
I'll be anything you want if it will make you stay"
-- oh but it could never be that way cause:
Chorus:
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be
The great pretender inside your head
A king wearing someone else's crown
Sacrificed who I am so that this heart could be fed
I spend so much time keeping myself underground
You know I love you but I am shaking inside
I know I'm not going to leave here alive 'cause:
Chorus:
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be
I have sailed this impossible ocean
I have sailed this crazy sea
I can never be what you want,
Whatever you want me to be
There is a spirit rising against what I have become
I have to come out and choose to stay our make my run
I'm slowly dying, I have to make a stand
I'm coming home, you'll have to take me for what I am
Chorus
Be? I can never be!
I can never be what you want!
I can never be what you want me to be!
