The Way We Are

I’ve been outside my bubble
for too long now
I’ve been trying to walk at your speed
Though I’m stumbling on my feet
I want to be someone
I want to be brave
I want to paint with my heart
And be good at something

Mmm…

I’ve been working a lot lately
Not having time for anyone
I’ve been wasting my energy
On trying to be someone
I just want to do right
I want to do good
Be a good friend, a nice daughter, sister
And do things that I should

But it’s way too much
I can’t be all that
And something tells me
That perfect is what humans can not be
Sometimes we fail
Sometimes we forget
That being just the way we are
Is simply the best

Mmm… 

It’s not about winning
It’s nor about the race
It’s about taking part
And find your true place
Where nothing is wrong
And your heart tells you right
Were you can be strong
With no need to fight

When it’s way too much
you can’t be all that
And something tells me
That perfect is what humans can not be
Sometimes we fail
Sometimes we forget
That being just the way we are
Is simply the best

Mmm…

Just the way we are
Just, just the way we are
