Paroles Be Myself

Le - Par .

No, you can't flip a flipbook
'Cause this isn't like the trigger
I won't change just 'cause you can't figure me out
Never doubt what I have to play
If the world's not ready they'll just have to wait
Don't put me on no pedestal
Tell me I'm incredible
Ask me to change and make my lines more legible
So learn to love what your listenin' to
'Cause my music is my music, this is what I do

Don't tell me what I need
Like what I need is what you want
'Cause everybody wants to have their say
They're just a bunch of know-it-alls
And chiming in, just tryna do my thing
Y'all just gettin' in the way, no-no
'Cause all I wanted was a little peace
A little time to play

'Cause I can feel it when the beat drops down
And the lights go out
'Cause you just need to let me be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no no no, oh
I won't strike a pose
Or sell my soul to break the mold
I'll just be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no, no

When the mic's in the booth, got the lights down low
Turn up the check and the headphones
Get that kick drum kickin'
And the bassline sittin' tight
Sippin' rum under the candlelight, oh
You oversee what you can't see
I'm just tryna be free
Creatively, you're killin' me
There's another storm on the frontline
Gotta keep a hold of the mic tight

Don't tell me what I need
Like what I need is what you want
'Cause everybody wants to have their say
They're just a bunch of know-it-alls
And chiming in, just tryna do my thing
Y'all just gettin' in the way, no-no
'Cause all I wanted was a little peace
A little time to play

'Cause I can feel it when the beat drops down
And the lights go out
'Cause you just need to let me be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no no no, oh
I won't strike a pose
Or sell my soul to break the mold
I'll just be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no, no

Just let me be
And then you'll see, yeah
Just let me be, yeah

'Cause I can feel it when the beat drops down
And the lights go out
'Cause you just need to let me be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no no no, oh
I won't strike a pose
Or sell my soul to break the mold
I'll just be myself
'Cause I ain't nobody else, no, no
