Why Can't I Be Me?

This song is by The Cure and appears on the single Taking Off (2004) and on the single Alt.end (2004).

I try so hard to be just for you
Careful what I want to know and what I do
Make my second nature all you ever see
You're sure it's the only way to be

Never go too far or ever stay too late
Worry what I think about and what I say
Make this second nature all I ever show
You're sure it's the only one to know
You're sure it's the only way to go

But why can't I
Why can't I believe?
Believe
Why can't I believe?

I don't want to break it down with you
Wondering if I ever did and never who
Take my second nature all you ever need
You're sure it's the only way to feel

Always run it back before I really should
Thin-lipped sorry every time to make it good
Take this second nature, all I ever play
You're sure it's the only one to stay
You're sure it's the only way...

But why can't I
Why can't I
Why can't I
Why can't I
Why
Why
Why can't I be me?
(Simply elegant...)
