Just Being Myself
Lyrics
Just Being Myself

Seven years with a man named Jim
Devoted my life to pleasing him
Changed my habits, changed my clothes
What was I thinking? Only Lord knows
I lost my independence
And my own identity
I was so wrapped up in someone else
I forgot about being me

It's time to take off my disguise
Look at the world through my own eyes
Take the pins from my hair and let it fall
It's time to put in my two cents
Take back my self-confidence
Talk to the mirror on the bathroom wall
Maybe just being myself ain't so bad after all

Thirteen months in New York City
Chasing a dream that was dark and gritty
Changed my accent to try to fit in
Ate too little and got too thin
I tried to live a lifestyle
Like some people on TV
I thought I was looking for myself
But I was being untrue to yours truly

So it's time to take off my disguise
Look at the world through my own eyes
Take the pins from my hair and let it fall
It's time to wrap up my loose ends
Get back together with my old friends
Talk to the mirror on the bathroom wall
Maybe just being myself ain't so bad after all

Now I'm back home in Virginia in my favorite flannel shirt
Making up for the time I wasted treating myself like dirt
I'm studying in night school, and playing my guitar
And I'm spending time with you, just enjoying being who we are

It's time to take off my disguise
Look at the world through my own eyes
Take the pins from my hair and let it fall
It's time to wrap up my loose ends
Get back together with my old friends
Talk to the mirror on the bathroom wall
Maybe just being myself ain't so bad after all
