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 a 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 a 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
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 a 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 I don't want to be I don't want to be

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 a birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

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

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by a identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one to notice?
I can't be the only one who's learned

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

Can I have everyone's attention please
See, 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 wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think in me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I got do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't wanna be anything other than me
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be

If you don't envisage Lucas with a basketball on a bridge when listening to this, did you even have a childhood!?

Christopher Flores

Or Haley changing the open sign to closed

I'm 11 and I know that.

Gurtbag

@Crazy Cookie Ah, yes. You mean my comment from well over a year ago. Thanks for replying man, hope whoever pissed in your cheerios has a rough day.

Crazy Cookie

@Gurtbag Well, the fact that you're naive enough to believe "beta males" exist in humans certainly proves that you're teenager. Also, how would liking a TV show even make you into a "beta male"? It's nonsense piled on top of nonsense.

Crazy Cookie

I don't envision Lucas with a basketball when I hear this song, although it's not because I didn't have a childhood; it's because I was only 3 years old when One Tree Hill first aired.

2020 pandemic. I can’t stop thinking about this song whenever I think about my childhood.I hope I’m not the only one who heard this song before I realized it was the One Tree Hill theme song.
