Everyone has got a secret side
A winding path that's through a door that's open wide
You think you know me but I'm changing all the time
'Cause if I wanna be sweet, if I wanna be wild
If I wanna cry like a child
If I pick up the world in the palm of my hand
I guess that's just who I am

This is me, can't ignore it
Reaching out, breaking free
Constantly falling forward
Yeah, I'm just goin' for it
This is me

Sometimes life is a confusing thing
When I talk it seems like no one's listening
Try to be an angel but I just can't find my wings
'Cause I wanna be sweet but I wanna be wild
And I wanna find my own style
So I make a mistake, then I'll do it again
But I'll do it the best that I can


More than what you see
Finding out who I can be

(This is me, this is me)


Can't ignore it
Reaching out, breaking free
Constantly falling forward
Yeah, I'm just goin' for it
This is me
