To fulfill the need to be who I am
in this world, is all I ask
I can't pretend to be something that I am not
and I won't wear a mask.
Ooh, you touched my face with love in your eyes
but will you touch my heart
with the understanding that it takes
to realize, I just can't play a part.
Ooh, it's a need to be true to myself
and make my own mistakes.
I don't want to lean too hard on someone else
no matter what it takes.
So if you are sure it's love
just be sure it's love for this thing called me
cause I am who I am and I have the need to be.
I'm not fool enough to ever thing
that I could be the master of my faith
but it's up to me to choose my road in life
rocky may well be the road I take the one I take
There's a need to be something more
then just a reflection of a man.
I can't survive in someone's shadow
I need my very own little spot to stand
If you sure it's love
just be sure it's love
for me and only me
cause I am what I am and I have the need to be.
Just be sure it's love
real real sure it's love
for me for little old me
cause I am what I am I am what I am and I have the need to be
