Paul Adolphus


Be Yourself


Don't try to be me
and I won't try to be you
there is only one of me
and there is only one of you

Don't go around pretending to be
somebody that you are not
there real you is who you should
let people see
and not what you've got

You don't need to put on a false identity
trying to look and act like a celebrity
you are who you are with your own personality
that's the way it so just deal with reality

Looking up to someone is nothing wrong
but when you try to become that someone
that's where you don't belong
just be yourself and play it cool
why pretend and make yourself look like a fool?

I won't try to be you
so don't try to be me
if others can't accept they way you are
then just let them be
