Lyrics

Be Me (Millie Glaser/Nita Hope/Josh Rahalski)
I?m waitin? for the day when it never even passes my way
I?m waitin? for the time when it never even crosses my mind
I know I won?t forget about it any time soon
Maybe not until my next life in my mother?s womb
So I will smile more and laugh a lot
I will change my mind or maybe not
I will laugh out loud. Who cares if someone can see me?
I?m jes gonna be me

I?m goin? through my past, only keepin? the finest memories
All my silly transgressions, unspoken confessions I am tossin? to the seas
Well, I know I won?t forget ?em by the end of the day
It doesn?t really matter cuz I?ve thrown ?em all away
I?m gonna dance around in my front yard
I?m gonna finally let down my guard
I will smile at that woman that I see
I?m jes gonna be me.

All my childhood humiliations
All my foolish 20-somethin? indiscretions
All my daily naggin? self-recriminations
I am leavin? ?em all behind

I?m gonna sail my life on a different course
I?m gonna take my cue right from the source
I will live my life without regret or fear
I?m jes gonna be
I?m gonna be
I?m jes gonna be me.
