That's Not Me
The Beach Boys Lyrics


Had to prove that I could make it alone
But that's not me
I wanted to show how independent I'd grown now
But that's not me

I could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl

I'm a little bit scared
Cause I haven't been home in a long time
You needed my love
And I know that I left at the wrong time
My folks when I wrote them
Told 'em what I was up to said that's not me

I went through all kinds of changes
Took a look at myself and said that's not me
I miss my pad and the places I've known
And every night as I lay there alone I will dream

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty
I'm glad I went now I'm that much more sure that we're ready

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

Yes. That and :


"I could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl."


Sums up the last 10 years of my life.
We all have to figure it out on our own. <3

I had to prove that I could make it alone
But that's not me
I wanted to show how independent I'd grown now
But that's not me

I could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl

I'm a little bit scared
Cause I haven't been home in a long time
You needed my love
And I know that I left at the wrong time
My folks when I wrote them
Told 'em what I was up to said that's not me

I went through all kinds of changes
Took a look at myself and said that's not me
I miss my pad and the places I've known
And every night as I lay there alone I will dream

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty
I'm glad I went now I'm that much more sure that we're ready

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

I once had a dream so I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

This song reminds me of a time after I had been discharged from the military. I went back home but I wasn't at ease, everything had changed and my father was still trying to treat me like I was his kid. I went back to where I had been stationed which was Anchorage Alaska. It was a year and a half later and that too had changed. I moved on a light budget so I used public transportation. One winter Saturday I took the bus to go see a movie. The bus stop was about a half a mile away from the mall where the theater was located. As I was walking in near zero degree temperatures after a free snowfall which was half up to my knees a car passed. It was a girl who had liked me 3 years before, she was with her new boyfriend, her fiance I later found out. It made me sad thinking that all this time later I was alone, walking in the bitter cold and snowe, alone, to see a movie, alone, with no one to see or call. I later realized, you can't go and revist the past, it no longer exists, you have to move forward.

Leaving the military sucks. Life in the civilian world keeps moving on but we aren't there to see it. It's like an alien landscape once we leave. You might be feel alone but there are thousands of others who feel the same way. Take care.
