'''[Verse 1]'''
+
???
Center of attention once again
 
 
They don't understand
 
They don't understand
 
They don't understand, no
 
They don't understand, no
  +
 
Then they try to tell me who I am
 
Then they try to tell me who I am
But they don't understand
+
They don't understand
 
They don't understand, no
 
They don't understand, no
   
'''[Pre-Chorus]'''
+
You want a perfect picture to believe in
You want a perfect picture to believe in?
+
Then you can't be looking in believe it
Then you can't be looking for me then
+
I don't even
 
'''[Chorus]'''
 
I don't need to live by your rules (you don't control me)
 
Until you've walked a mile in my shoes (you don't know me)
 
And I know, I know, I know you don't like it
 
You don't, you don't, you don't know where I've been
 
It's my life, so truth be told
 
I see you thinking but there's just one thing dear
 
You think you know, but you don't have no idea
 
Think you know me, but there's more to see, my love
 
 
'''[Verse 2]'''
 
The same arguments time and time again
 
And you watch them all happen
 
But they don't understand, no
 
Thinking you're the reason that it ends
 
And he won't be back again
 
But they don't understand, no
 
 
'''[Pre-Chorus]'''
 
You want a perfect picture to believe in?
 
Then you can't be looking for me then
 
 
'''[Chorus]'''
 
I don't need to live by your rules (you don't control me)
 
Until you've walked a mile in my shoes (you don't know me)
 
And I know, I know, I know you don't like it
 
You don't, you don't, you don't know where I've been
 
It's my life, so truth be told
 
You don't know me
 
 
'''[Bridge]'''
 
The girl you see in photographs is only a part of the one I am
 
Don't judge me
 
'Cause that's not reality
 
And all I can be is in love with who I'm becoming
 
 
'''[Breakdown]'''
 
Think you know me, but there's more to see, my love
 
You think you know, but you don't have no idea
 
 
'''[Chorus]'''
 
I don't need to live by your rules (you don't control me)
 
Until you've walked a mile in my shoes (you don't know me)
 
And I know, I know, I know you don't like it
 
You don't, you don't, you don't know where I've been
 
It's my life, so truth be told
 
I see you thinking, you don't know me
 
I don't need to live by your rules (you don't control me)
 
Until you've walked a mile in my shoes (you don't know me)
 
And I know, I know, I know you don't like it
 
You don't, you don't, you don't know where I've been
 
It's my life, so truth be told
 
I see you thinking, but there is just one thing my dear
 
You think you know, but you don't have no idea
 
Think you know me, but there's more to see, my love
 
 
'''[Outro]'''
 
My love
