Be Myself Again
by Donna Summer



Let me introduce myself
I'm a woman that you've never seen
You might know me from somewhere else
As someone that I've never been.

I gave everything to play the game
My soul fell apart at the seams
I fell down like a house of cards
When somebody pulled the queen.

[Chorus]
'Cause you could spend your life
Lookin' for your own reflection
Time could blur the lines
Between what's real and what's projected
Had I known what I lost?
What I gained, what it'd cost
I'd still give what remains
To be myself again.

You must believe me when I say
Don't live someone else's design
Turn it around like a photograph
The writings been there all the time.

Now you can have all these hopes and dreams
The ones I can't use anymore
I don't know what it is you lost
But I hope you got what you came for.

[Chorus]

Sometimes I want to leave right now
Sometimes I want to cry out loud
I want to let it all hang out
But I don't want to let you down.

Sometimes I want to just lay here
Sometimes I want to disappear
I want to show you all my fear
But I don't want to let you down.

[Chorus]

To be myself again...
