Better At Being Who I Am

Album: Rearview Town (2018)
  • Well you never liked them much
    But I broke out these old boots again
    Gonna jump in that old truck
    Head down to the bar and hang out with an old friend
    Been a while since I fired up a cigarette
    And got drunk on some draft beer
    Well where I'm going tonight
    There's a good chance you won't want me back here
    I tried to be what you were looking for
    But I can't do that anymore

    I'm better at being at who I am
    Better at letting my rebel run
    Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can't be my old man's son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something that ain't never had a chance
    I'm better at being who I am

    I wasn't ever gonna change
    I don't know who in the hell I thought I was kiddin'
    For a little while there it seemed like the sex would make it all alright but it didn't
    This ain't my side of the tracks
    I got good at forgetting that

    I'm better at being who I am
    Better at letting my rebel run
    Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can't be my old man's son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something I ain't never had a chance
    I'm better at being back on my side of town
    Back down to earth
    A blue jean boy and a flannel shirt
    I'm just not what you deserve
    For what it's worth, for what it's worth

    I'm better at being at who I am
    Better at being where I'm from
    Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can't be my old man's son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something I ain't never had a chance
    I'm better at being who I am Writer/s: Neil Thrasher, Casey Michael Beathard, Wendell Mobley
