Underneath It All
Pillar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can see you stepping to me just by the look in your eyes
You think that I can't be who I am if I don't live out your life
But that's alright

'Cause I know who I am underneath it all
And I'm gonna be who I am through it all

I can see you talking to me, but I can't hear what you say
And all the words coming outta your mouth have got me moving away
But that's okay
But I won't walk away from the Place that I need to stay

I don't want to be like you, I don't want to be like me




I want to be like I Am
The One that made me, me
