the way i am lyrics – amanda

this may come as shocking news
i don’t wanna be like you
i’m not afraid of standing out
don’t belong in a crowd

i don’t act like i’m all that
don’t think i’m better than you are
still you wanna h*ssle me
just ’cause i’m following my heart

i’ve tried to fit into what
other people think that i should be
but now i found the only way
to make me truly happy

so many ways to go, i choose to use my own
and you don’t have to understand
because it’s up to me and up to me alone
and you can’t change the way i am

just a girl showing off is what you see
i just do what’s right for me
wont imitate anyone else
you be them, i’ll be myself

don’t get me wrong ’cause i have respect
how other people choose
how to live their lives but i
deserve that respect too, oh

so many ways to go, i choose to use my own
and you don’t have to understand
because it’s up to me and up to me alone
and you can’t change the way i am

so many ways to go, i choose to use my own
and you don’t have to understand
because it’s up to me and up to me alone
and you can’t change the way i am

oh oh, oh oh
just a girl is what you say
showing off but you just wait
you ain’t seen yet just what
i have got, no, no, no

just a girl is what you heard
showing off [incomprehensible]
you ain’t seen yet just what i have got
(what i have got)

so many ways to go, i choose to use my own
and you don’t have to understand
because it’s up to me and up to me alone
and you can’t change the way i am

so many ways to go, i choose to use my own
and you don’t have to understand
because it’s up to me and up to me alone
and you can’t change the way i am

oh and you can’t change the way i am
oh and you can’t change the way i am
