I Can Only Be Me
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


Butterflies begin from having been another
As a child is born from being in a mother's womb
But how many times have you wished you were some other
Someone than who you are
Yet who's to say that if all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you as I can only be me

Flowers cannot bloom until it is their season
As we would not be here unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces
You could anymore be loving you that you'd see
You can only be me as I can only be me

Oh oh oh I can only be me

"I Can Only Be Me"

Butterflies begin
From having been another
As a child is born, from being in a mother's womb
But how many times have you wished you were some other
than someone who you really are
Yeah who's to say that if all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you
Cause I can only be me

Flowers cannot bloom
Until it is their season
As we would not be there
Unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yeah who's to say that unfamiliar places
You could anymore be loving you that you see
You can only be you
Cause I can only be me
♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Butterflies begin from having been another
As a child is born from being in a mothers womb
But how many times have you wished you were some other
Someone than who you are
Yet who's to say that if all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you as i can only be me
Flowers cannot bloom until it is their season
As we would not be here unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces
You could anymore be loving you that you'd see
You can only be me as i can only be me
Oh oh oh i can only be me

I’m 66 years old and I found Eva Cassidy a little over a year ago and I’ve been in complete ahh, I’m Hypnotized by her gorgeous voice to the point I can’t listen to any of my favorite songs from years past, I’ll listen to Eva singing Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain 5-6 times a day

Richard Daryl Osborn

Eva Cassidy and Karen Carpenter-two songbirds that have flown away way too soon. Two beautiful voices I will never forget.
