[Verse 1] I am a question to the world Not an answer to be heard Or a moment that's held in your arms And what do you think you'd ever say?
I won't listen anyway You don't know me And I'll never be what you want me to be And what do you think you'd understand?
They're the ones that stay the same They don't know me 'cause I'm not here [Verse 2] And you see the things they never see All you wanted, I could be Now you know me, and I'm not afraid And I want to tell you who I am Can you help me be a man?
They can't break me, as long as I know who I am [Chorus 2] And I want a moment to be real Wanna touch things I don't feel Wanna hold on, and feel I belong And how can the world want me to change?
