I Don't Want to Be
Gavin DeGraw Lyrics


I don't need to be anything other
Than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other
Than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other
Than the birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who's noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me, ah

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain
The crust of creation
My whole situation made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I don't want to be, hey yeah, hey yeah
I don't want to be, oh
I don't want to be
I don't want to be, anything
Anything other than me

(Hey yeah yeah yeah) I don't want to be
(Hey yeah yeah)
(Hey yeah yeah yeah) I don't want to be
(Hey yeah yeah)
(Hey yeah yeah yeah) I don't want to be
(Hey yeah yeah)
(Hey yeah yeah yeah) I don't want to be

I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son
Eu não preciso ser outra coisa senão um filho de um guarda de prisão

I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
Eu não preciso ser outra coisa senão um filho de um especialista

I don't have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one
Eu não tenho que ser outra coisa senão o nascimento de duas almas em uma

Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from
Parte de onde estou indo é saber de onde eu venho


I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Eu não quero ser nada além do que estou tentando ser ultimamente

All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
Tudo o que eu tenho que fazer é pensar em mim e ter paz de espírito

I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Estou cansado de olhar os arredores imaginando o que eu tenho que fazer

Or who I'm supposed to be
Ou quem eu devo ser

I don't wanna be anything other than me
Eu não quero ser nada além de mim


I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
Estou cercado por mentirosos por todos os lados

I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
Estou cercado por impostores por todos os lados

I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Estou cercado por crise de identidade por todos os lados

Am I the only one to notice?
Eu sou o único que percebeu?

I can't be the only one who's learned
Não posso ser o único que aprendeu


I don't wanna to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Eu não quero ser nada além do que estou tentando ser ultimamente

All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
Tudo o que eu tenho que fazer é pensar em mim e ter paz de espírito

I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Estou cansado de olhar os arredores imaginando o que eu tenho que fazer

Or who I'm supposed to be
Ou quem eu devo ser

I don't wanna be anything other than me
Eu não quero ser nada além de mim


Can I have everyone's attention, please?
Posso ter a atenção de todos, por favor?

See, not like this and that
Veja, não desse jeito

You're gonna have to leave
Você vai ter de partir

I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
Eu venho das montanhas, a casca da criação

My whole situation made from clay to stone
Toda minha situação foi do barro para a pedra

And now I'm telling everybody
E agora eu digo para todos


I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Eu não quero ser nada além do que estou tentando ser ultimamente

All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
Tudo o que eu tenho que fazer é pensar em mim e ter paz de espírito

I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I got do
Estou cansado de olhar os arredores imaginando o que eu tenho que fazer

Or who I'm supposed to be
Ou quem eu devo ser

I don't wanna be anything other than me
Eu não quero ser nada além de mim


I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Eu não quero ser nada além do que estou tentando ser ultimamente

All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
Tudo o que eu tenho que fazer é pensar em mim e ter paz de espírito

I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I got do
Estou cansado de olhar os arredores imaginando o que eu tenho que fazer

Or who I'm supposed to be
Ou quem eu devo ser

I don't wanna be anything other than me
Eu não quero ser nada além de mim


I don't wanna be
Eu não quero ser

I don't wanna be
Eu não quero ser
