Long flowing hair, slim and pretty,
Is this what I'm supposed to be?
Am I beautiful if I'm that...
Or am I beautiful if I'm me?
QUESTIONS FROM ME, EXPECTATIONS FROM THEM
Expensive cars, fancy clothes
Spending everything until there's nothing more
From Christ and Salvation we often run
Spending life wasting until it's done
EXPECTATIONS OF YOU, EXPECTATIONS OF ME
Am I supposed to listen to music that defames God's name
and give up my convictions so I don't look lame?
Will anyone embrace me if I just am who I am
or will they brand my personality as a sham?
INVITATIONS FROM THEM, EXPECTATIONS OF ME
My life is not a fashion statement
I don't have to prove who I am
I go by my own morals
I refuse to live by yours
DECLARATIONS FROM ME
I am intelligent
I am weird
I am talented
My life is perfect
EXPECTATIONS FROM THEM
I am average
I am typical
I am a loner
I'm just a human
EXPECTATIONS FROM ME
I am a woman
I am a sex machine
I am all-that
I rule the world
EXPECTATIONS FROM SOCIETY
BUT IN REALITY
I AM NOT A GRADE
I AM NOT THE PERFECT MIRROR IMAGE
I AM NOT AN ACCOLADE
I AM NOT A DISAPPOINTMENT
I AM NOT AN EXPECTATION
I WON'T ACCEPT INVITATIONS
I am deep enough, strong enough, special enough, and smart enough to know I am a prized creation
and no matter where I go in life I'll do my best to stand out in this generation
I know that by the end of my life I don't have to be a celebrity
Because I'm perfect enough at just merely being me.
