JUST BE WHO YOU ARE

(A Song For Maude)

Copyright 2014 Robert E. Shandor

 

You can live life seekin' outside approval

Or you can go your own way

You can spend time readin' another's story

Or you can write your own play

 

You can let ambition drive you crazy

Or you can pleasantly ride

You can swim hard against the waves, or

Float along with the tide

 

There's no need to try so hard

To become some risin' star

So relax, take a deep breath

And just be who you are

 

You shouldn't let hyper-ventilation

Take control of your day

You can breathe fine without assistance

So throw the Xanax away

 

You shouldn't work at being something

You must pretend to be

Don't you know you've got the power

To be yourself effortlessly

 

There's no need to try so hard

To become some risin' star

So relax, take a deep breath

And just be who you are

 

Can't you see that there is no reason

For life to be such a grind

It's just a lifestyle you don't need so

You can leave it behind

 

Can't you hear your inner voice that's

Whispering to you

It's tellin' you to take a break and

Change some things that you do

 

There's no need to try so hard

To become some risin' star

So relax, take a deep breath

And just be who you are

 

There's no need to try so hard

To become some risin' star

So relax, take a deep breath

And just be who you are

So relax, take a deep breath

And just be who you are
