I Don't Wanna Be Lyrics - Gavin DeGraw

Review The Song (66)



I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son,
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son,
I don't have to be anyone other than the birth of two souls in one,
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from,

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,
I don't wanna be anything other than me,

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn,
I'm surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn,
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn,
Am I the only one to notice?
I can't be the only one who's learned,

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind,
sponsored links
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,
I don't wanna be anything other than me,

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave,
I came from the mountains,
The crust of creation,
My whole situation made from clay to stone,
And now I'm telling everybody,

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,

I don't wanna be anything other than me,
I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,

I don't wanna be anything other than me,
I don't wanna be, hey yeah, hey yeah,
I don't wanna be, oh, oh, oh,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be anything,
Anything other than me,
I don't wanna be (hey yeah, yeah),
I don't wanna be (hey yeah, yeah),
I don't wanna be (hey yeah, yeah),
Hey yeah, yeah,
Hey yeah, yeah.

comfortable in my own skin | Reviewer: Ken | 8/20/11

I really appreciate the message that this songs gives us. It's really tiring to live your life always thinking if people might not accept you and might say something bad about you. I've gone through those days too and still from time those thoughts drive me crazy. I have just realized that you become truelly happy when you are living your life having self confidence and being proud of your family and where you came from.

Uplifiting | Reviewer: D.Rasberry | 5/14/11

This is a great song. I was recently selected to speak at my graduation...I had no idea what I was going to say...but then I heard this song again on the radio and it gave me great inspiration.So kudos to mr. Degraw. wander if his song's ever been used in a speech before...

I wish i was acting in this movie. hope to play a part in the next season. when i watch this movie it makes me feel like i am interacting live with the rest of the actors and actresses. Lil J. luke is so smart and cute, keep it up boy.

i dont want to be | Reviewer: shelbystaygold | 6/23/09

This is one of gav's songs i can really relate to the most. It is saying how you don't have to be anything other than yourself. he does not have to be something extraordinary. and how you can't get anywhere without knowing where you're coming from. he knows he is a good person, so when he thinks of himself he has peace of mind. he is tired of seeing lairs, imposers, and identity crisis. He has noticed this and hopes he isn't the only one that has learned to just be himself. he is not going to try fit into the crowd like ALOT of kids these day. He talks about how he hasn't always knew who is was, but now he sure...of what he is and what he is not. He just wants to let everyone know he has found himself.
I think the message is great because looking around, alot of people do not know themselves. how do you expect people to understand you when you don't even understand yourself, or know who you are? i think gavin is saying people that don't know who they are don't bother him anymore because he knows himself...so there is nothing he should worry about.
