  • Yeah

    Maybe I'ma get a little anxious
    Maybe I'ma get a little shy
    'Cause everybody's trying to be famous
    And I'm just trying to find a place to hide (oh)
    All I wanna do is just hold somebody
    But no one ever wants to get to know somebody
    I don't even know how to explain this
    I don't even think I'm gonna try

    And that's okay
    I promise myself one day
    Hey!

    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am
    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am

    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am

    Maybe I'ma get a little nervous
    Maybe I don't go out anymore (oh)
    Feelin' like I really don't deserve this (-serve this)
    Life ain't nothing like it was before (ain't nothing like before)
    'Cause all I wanna do is just hold somebody
    But no one ever wants to get to know somebody
    If you go and look under the surface (surface)
    Baby, I'm a little insecure

    And that's okay (baby, now, that's okay)
    I promise myself one day
    Hey!

    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am
    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am

    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am
    That's just the way I am

    I'ma tell 'em all (that's just the way I am)
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me (that's just the way I am)
    or love me (that's just the way I am)
    But that's just the way I am

    Am, am
    Yeah, this is what you wanted
    Oh, this is what you wanted
    I am, am, am
    Yeah, this is what you wanted
    Oh, this is what you wanted all along
    Everybody's trying to be famous
    And I'm just trying to find a place to hide (Hey!)

    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am
    I'ma tell 'em all
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am

    That's just the way I am (Maybe I'ma get a little anxious)
    That's just the way I am (Maybe I'ma get a little scared)
    That's just the way I am ('Cause everybody's trying to be famous)
    Even though that's just the way I am

    I'ma tell 'em all (that's just the way I am)
    I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me
    But that's just the way I am Writer/s: Charlie Puth, Jacob Kasher
