I just wanna live my life because I wanna, and I need to 
So don't be trying to steal my light because you don't know me, don't pretend to 
I've been busy on my grind, just like you, I've been trying 
I've even shed a tear or two, I swear to you, I aint lying 

Sometimes I feel the world is after me, trying to get to me, trying to stop what I do 
Because I'm the only one that looks out for me, can be me and walk in my shoes 
Everday there's something that's new to me, I just, gotta breathe, I don't, know about you 
But I'm the only one that looks out for me, can be me, and... walk in my shoes 

It ain't easy being Emily 

But I don't want to change my name, because I ain't got to, and I don't need to 
So I'm a do what I do, because I ain't gotta live for you 
But I'm a keep up with mine, keep on striving and surviving no 

[Repeat Chorus] 

See everybodys got their own problems that their going through 
I take it day by day, it's only thing that I can do 
So I live for me as you live for you 
But you can't be me unless you walk in my shoes 

[Chorus x2] 

Walk walk, walk walk, walk walk - walk in my shoes [x 2]
