You Couldn't Tell me

-

You couldn't tell me there was something

__wrong

____with me

'Cause I already know

'Cause I need things to be

__wrong

____with me

'Cause I depend on staying

__the way that I am

I see my "defects of character"

__as "assets"

Even when nobody else can

I'm wrong for wanting to be myself

__as I am

But like being how I am

Just don't like

__how others don't like it

And stay away from me

__because of the ways

____that I refuse to change

But

__me changing

____does not seem worth

______the love

________and acceptance

__________that I strive for

It would only be "people pleasing"

So I just can't win

__either way
