lyrics

I had dreams of a little girl, a perfect thing in a crooked world
seems I’ve strayed far from the plan. It's made me feel like a confidence man.
Yes I have lied before, but that just isn't me any more.
I couldn't pick a rougher way, I'd rather fight to live than be held at bay

I’m making changes, I’m resetting the score. Now I can tell you who I’m living life for.
I’ve got to spend my whole life with me—when I was younger this was too hard to see.
They said this was a Phase, they tried to tell me I got lost in a maze.
This ain't a phase, this is who I am. you don’t like it? Well I don’t give a damn!

I'm not gonna grin and bear it
Not gonna hide this anymore
If you can't hold me for who I am
Then let me go.

Live your own life, and let me have mine. You think you own me? Then you've crossed a line.
I'm not your man, I'm not your woman. I'm not your man, I'm not your woman.
That choice is all my own. A bombshell bettie or a working jo.
If I’ve got, then I’m gonna flaunt. I’ll be what I need: what ever I want.

I'm not gonna grin and bear it
Not gonna hide this anymore
If you can't hold me for who I am
Then let me go.
