i can’t be myself lyrics – leann rimes

(originally by merle haggard)

it’s a way of mine to say just what i’m thinking
and to do the things i really want to do
and you want to change the part of me i’m proud of
so i can’t be myself, when i’m with you

oh, you never liked the clothes i wear on sunday
just because i don’t believe the way you do
but i believe the lord knows i’m unhappy
and i can’t be myself when i’m with you

i can’t be myself and be what pleases you
deep down inside i don’t believe that you want me to
and it’s not my way to take so long deciding
that i can’t be myself when i’m with you

i can’t be myself and be what pleases you
deep down inside i don’t believe that you want me to
and i believe the lord knows i’m unhappy
and i can’t be myself when i’m with you
and i can’t be myself when i’m with you
