D A D E

D        E    D     E
Please don't mistake me, or try to make me
  D     E    A
The shadow of anybody else
D      E   D        E
I ain't the him or her you think I am
     D   E      A
I'm just trying hard to be myself
  E            A
Oh, society's goal is to be part of the whole
     D             E
That may sound good to you, not to me

    A
Let me be, let me be
  D      E
To think like I want to
    A
Let me be, let me be
    D     E
That's all I ask of you
 D            C#m  Bm    A
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be

D A D E

D      E    D    E
Don't try to plan me or understand me
 D   E        A
I can't stand to be understood
D         E   D      E
I could never give in to or ever live up to
   D    E    A
Being like you think I should
     E             A
I've got some inner need which I'm trying to heed
    D           E
I can't take hand me down destiny

    A
Let me be, let me be
  D      E
To think like I want to
    A
Let me be, let me be
    D     E
That's all I ask of you
 D            C#m  Bm    A
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be

D      E     D   E
Don't try to change me or rearrange me
  D  E           A
To satisfy the selfishness of you
D     E        D            E
I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day
    D   E           A
And I'm not a pawn to be told how to move
       D               E
I'm sorry I'm not the fool you thought would play by your rules
    D    E      A
But to each his own philosophy

    A
Let me be, let me be
  D      E
To think like I want to
    A
Let me be, let me be
    D     E
That's all I ask of you
 D            C#m  Bm    A
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be
       D   E    A
I said that's all I ever can be 3x
