    I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son
    I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
    I don't have to be anyone other than the birth of two souls in one
    Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

    I don't want to be anything
    Other than what I've been trying to be lately
    All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
    I'm tired of looking around rooms wondering what I gotta do
    Or who I'm supposed to be
    I don't want to be anything other than me

    I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
    I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
    I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
    Am I the only one to notice?
    I can't be the only one who's learned

    I don't want to be anything
    Other than what I've been trying to be lately
    All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
    I'm tired of looking around rooms wondering what I gotta do
    Or who I'm supposed to be
    I don't want to be anything other than me

    Can I have everyone's attention please
    If you're not like this and that
    You're gonna have to leave
    I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
    My whole situation made from clay to stone
    And now I'm telling everybody

    I don't want to be anything
    Other than what I've been trying to be lately
    All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
    I'm tired of looking around rooms wondering what I gotta do
    Or who I'm supposed to be
    I don't want to be anything other than me
    I don't want to be
    I don't want to be
    I don't want to be
    I don't want to be

    Everybody come from somewhere or maybe nowhere
    The place you wake from
    The place you ain’t from
    That makes us scared
    The projects or overseas
    The trailer parks
    The poverty line, the place where ain’t no art on the walls
    Just pictures of Jesus and civil rights leaders or confederate flags and Elvis
    Observe
    From the plastic-covered seating
    There’s struggling mothers
    Young brothers turn-into-fathers and
    Troublesome cousins that we hang out with that sinks us farther
    Cause troubles in numbers

    But we can’t help it, that’s where we from
    And we ain’t got good educational systems to teach us
    Instead we see who we are not and think they are beneath us
    Cause he carry a heater, she got her college degree or
    Cause the sweetest love done knocked you up and he don’t want to keep her
    We all living different for a reason
    We come from the root
    The root
    The root
    The root

    Where you from
    Who you know
    How you know 'em
    Where you going
    What’s life coming from the bottom at the root
    Trying to rise up and grow to something from my truth

    Strong roots’ll make your tree grow old
    Strong roots’ll make your tree grow old

    Where you from
    Who you know
    How you know 'em
    Where you going
    What’s life coming from the bottom at the root
    Trying to rise up and grow to something from my truth

    Strong roots'll make ya
    Strong roots'll make ya
    Strong roots'll make your tree grow old

    Everybody come from nowhere to maybe somewhere
    And going back to where we come from
    Sometimes makes us scared
    Double checking funds to secure we got enough bread
    To look good, to eat good and do better than we once did
    Just trying to make ends meet each other
    When we’ve got nothing
    The root a 'lil stronger
    Spirits higher when we got comfort
    No comforter for the bed but we sleeping to dream for something
    What you say to the kid
    That only get meals from his school lunches

    Coming from different corners
    Brought up by broken daughters
    Cross the waters to the suburbs
    You really find some lost ones
    Struggling from the root
    But look what the root taught us
    Stay grounded in my childhood house cause home is where the heart is
    The start of us all, when we fall, we fall the hardest
    We fall beneath us
    To the beginning and with reason
    It’s the root
    The root
    The root
    The root

    Where you from
    Who you know
    How you know 'em
    Where you going
    What’s life coming from the bottom at the root
    Trying to rise up and grow to something from my truth

    Strong roots’ll make your tree grow old
    Strong roots’ll make your tree grow old

    Where you from
    Who you know
    How you know ‘em
    Where you going
    What’s life coming from the bottom at the root
    Trying to rise up and grow to something from my truth

    Strong roots'll make ya
    Strong roots'll make ya
    Strong roots'll make your tree grow old

    Strong roots'll make your tree grow old
    Strong roots'll make your tree grow old
    Strong roots'll make
    Strong roots'll make
    Strong roots'll make ya

    Okay, bear with me. Got this link from a friend. Did not know this guy existed. Not my type of music or anything, but - like me - just endulge and listen. From the info I got, this is a 20 something guy from Kazachstan, son of 2 opera singers, performing this French song on a Chinese version of The Voice. The guy has a 6 or 7 octave range. This song was originally from some French musical, this is the link to the original.

    And I just
    Like the way it's going
    Like the way it's sounding
    Like it when you tellin' me you feel the same
    Never tried to hide it
    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    Like the way it's going
    Like the way it's sounding
    Like it when you tellin' me you feel the same
    Never tried to hide it
    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    After sunrise passion
    She continued to grasp her phone
    Her other hand over her chest
    Behind a smile
    She wanna borrow a couple coins for the bus ride home
    It's five minutes 'til her psych test

    She promised to leave
    And I guess I believed her
    Don't need to change the key like Lex Luger
    Never rubbed the belly of a Buddha
    I have luck stuck in my blood
    Girl, now it's runnin' through ya

    She left, I stayed afloat in my bed
    I was tempted to go pick her up from class
    But I rolled up instead
    Candle burnt to the bottom of the wick
    It's the one I had lit in my room just before she came through
    She can laugh with my main crew
    That's how you know she gon' stay so cool
    Her body's smooth like a summer sand dune
    It feels so good when everything's brand new

    And she got me sayin' l
    Like the way it's going
    Like the way it's sounding
    Like it when you tellin' me you feel the same
    Never tried to hide it
    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    Like the way it's going
    Like the way it's sounding
    Like it when you tellin' me you feel the same
    Never tried to hide it
    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    Seein' her face underneath the sun
    Had enough hangin' out
    Let's go have some fun
    Always betting high
    That's how we do it on my side of town
    Peeled the same bill twice
    She made me miscount

    Don't slow down, you make me feel right
    The 55's ready for tonight, can't stop my stares
    Girl, this dress' way too tight
    Time for me to show you why you chose to be with me
    Alright?

    Grip on my skin, kiss on my lips, grab on your hips and work it
    No need for courage 'cause you found your niche
    Where everything is perfect
    And I like that style, make her open up her smile
    I'll devote my time with her
    And I knew when I met her everything would get better
    So I'm heading on the road with 'er that's right

    Like the way it's going
    Like the way it's sounding
    Like it when you tellin me you feel the same
    Never tried to hide it
    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    Didn't try to fight it
    Now it hit me and I just can't explain

    She holds it down
    Be my queen, wear this crown
    Not a thing, gonna get up in my way
    Smile at everything I say
    'Cause she holds it down

    Be my queen, wear this crown
    Not a thing, gonna get up in my way
    Smile at everything I say
    'Cause she holds it down

    Be my queen, wear this crown
    Not a thing, gonna get up in my way
    Smile at everything I say (I'll make her smile all I want)
    'Cause she holds it down

    Be my queen, wear this crown
    Not a thing, gonna get up in my way
    Smile at everything I say (I'll make her smile all I want)

    Help, I have done it again
    I have been here many times before
    Hurt myself again today
    And, the worst part is there's no one else to blame

    Be my friend, hold me
    Wrap me up, enfold me
    I am small and needy
    Warm me up and breathe me

    Ouch I have lost myself again
    Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found
    Yeah I think that I might break
    Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

    Be my friend, hold me
    Wrap me up, enfold me
    I am small and needy
    Warm me up and breathe me

    Be my friend, hold me
    Wrap me up, enfold me
    I am small and needy
    Warm me up and breathe me

    I think anybody who is anybody, in the music industry is playing an instrument in this video!

    ^Great piece of music, and I don't really like the banjo. Just this one and the tune from Deliverance.

    bruno mars - when I was your man



    Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
    Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same
    When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
    'Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

    It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh hoo hoo
    Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
    That I should have bought you flowers
    And held your hand
    Should have gave you all my hours
    When I had the chance
    Take you to every party 'cause all you wanted to do was dance
    Now my baby's dancing
    But she's dancing with another man

    My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
    Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
    Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, oh
    And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

    It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
    That I should have bought you flowers
    And held your hand
    Should have gave you all my hours
    When I had the chance
    Take you to every party 'cause all you wanted to do was dance
    Now my baby's dancing
    But she's dancing with another man

    Although it hurts
    I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
    Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
    To try and apologize for my mistakes

    But I just want you to know
    I hope he buys you flowers
    I hope he holds your hand
    Give you all his hours
    When he has the chance
    Take you to every party
    'Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
    Do all the things I should have done
    When I was your man

    Do all the things I should have done
    When I was your man
    "The wild, cruel beast is not behind the bars of the cage. He is in front of it."...Axel Munthe
