Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Center of attention once again
They don't understand
They don't understand, no
Then they try to tell me who I am
But they don't understand
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
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
