A Shooting star across my sky
I wanted to keep you in my heaven
"I’ll be anything you want!" I said
"will live into your dream just to see you smile
Be my baby - I'll be your crusade
Your clown-lover, renegade
Anything you want if it will make you stay"
Oh but it could never be that way, ‘cause :

Chorus :
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be!
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be!

The great pretender inside your head
A king wearing someone else's crown
Sacrificed who I am so that this heart could be fed
I spend so much time keeping myself underground
You know I love you but I am shaking inside
I know I'm not going to leave here alive, ‘cause :

Chorus :
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be!
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be!

I can sail your impossible ocean
I can sail your crazy sea
I can never be what you want
Whatever you want me to be
Oh There is a spirit rising against what I have become - never become
I have to come out and choose to stay or make my run - never be
I'm slowly dying, I have to make a stand
I'm coming home, you'll have to take me for what I am
Oh Ye - Oh Ye - Oh Ye - take me for what I am

Chorus :
I can never be what you want me to be!
I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be!

Be ? I can be ? I can never be!
Be ? I can be ? I can never be!
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want me to be!
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want me to be!
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want
Be ? I can be ? I can never be! - I can never be what you want me to be!
