What’s it like to be me?
Sometimes it’s like a tree,
Big, solid, strong.
 
What’s it like to be me?
Sometimes it’s like the seashore,
Quiet, calm one moment, storm ravaged the next.
 
What’s it like to be me?
Sometimes it’s like an obstinate reed,
Trying not to sway in the wind.
 
What’s it like to be me?
Sometimes it’s like an eagle,
Soaring free, high in the sky.
 
What’s it like to be me?
Sometimes, well more often that not,
It’s all of them at once.
 
Wondering what it’s like to be me?
Don’t bother.
Just try to be you first.
