Lirik lagu: Be As You Are


Virginia Woolf and poetry 
No one seemed to notice me 
Being young was getting so old 
Cheap beer and cigarettes 
Life was like a movie set 
And I seemed to be given no role 

But in times of trouble 
I can turn to my mother 
And I know that she gon’ understand 
So at age 18 
I cried to my mother 
And she told me, “young man” 

“There are moments when you fall to the ground 
But you are stronger than you feel you are now 
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no 
Just be as you are 
Life is not always a comfortable ride 
Everybody’s got scars that they hide 
And everybody plays the fool sometimes, yeah 
Just be as you are” 

They played me on the radio 
And everything was changing, so 
I thought I was all the way grown 
But I can still remember in that cold November 
When I realized I’m all alone 

But in times of trouble 
I can turn to my mother 
And I know that she gon’ understand 
So at age 22 
I cried to my mother 
And she told me, “young man” 

“There are moments when you fall to the ground 
But you are stronger than you feel you are now 
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no 
Just be as you are 
It doesn’t matter if you become some star 
Life is better when you open your heart 
You don’t always have to act so hard, no 
Just be as you are” 

If I’m speaking truthfully 
I’m not who I used to be 
And I know some people might laugh 
‘Cause my music doesn’t sound the same 
And my head’s no longer shaved 
I’m worried if I’m on the right path 

But in times of trouble 
I can turn to my mother 
And I know that she gon’ understand 
So at age 26 
I spoke to my mother 
And she told me, “young man” 

“There are moments when you fall to the ground 
But you are stronger than you feel you are now 
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no 
Just be as you are 
It doesn’t matter if you become some star 
Life is better when you open your heart 
You don’t always have to act so hard, no 
Just be as you are” 

Be as you are
