This Is Me

lyrics

You can try to be someone you’re not
And suffer all your life
Or you can try to be yourself
Have a little fun
And enjoy the ride
You decide
You decide

If you always live the easy life
You’ll mostly do alright
But you’ll never see things go your way
Unless you take a stand and fight
You decide
You decide

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be as it was meant to be

It may be hard to look past the darkness in your life
And see the blinding light (can you see the light)
Of all the good things you bring to your friends
How you light their lives so very bright
I think you should know
You should know

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be as it was meant to be

solo

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud
If you see the glimmer in your eyes
Do you smile
Do you smile

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be
As it was meant to
As it was meant to
As it was meant to be

When you look at yourself
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
When you look at yourself
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
This is me
This is me
