Who You Are

Charted: 8
  • I stare at my reflection in the mirror
    Why am I doing this to myself?
    Losing my mind on a tiny error,
    I nearly left the real me on the shelf
    No, no, no, no

    Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
    Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
    It's okay not to be okay
    Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
    Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
    Just be true to who you are

    (Who you are, who you are, who you are)
    (Who you are, who you are, who you are)

    (Who you are, who you are, who you are)

    (Who you are, who you are)

    Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?
    I forgot what to do to fit the mold, yeah
    The more I try the less it's working, yeah,
    'Cause everything inside me screams, no, no, no, no, yeah

    Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
    Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
    It's okay not to be okay
    Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
    But tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising
    There's nothing wrong with who you are

    Yes, no's, egos, fake shows
    Like woo, just go, and leave me alone
    Real talk, real life, good love, goodnight
    With a smile , that's my own
    That's my own, no, no, no, no, no

    Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
    Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
    It's okay not to be okay
    Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
    Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising
    Just be true to who you are, yeah, yeah, yeah Writer/s: Jessica Cornish, Shelly Peiken, Tobias Gad

  • Ronny from London, United KingdomThis song is so true.we all stare at our reflection in the mirror and judge the littlest things. ive seen myself looking in the mirror looking for things to be wrong. it puts you down so much. you feel horrible with yourself. and this song really makes you feel like. yeah i can just be who i want, stop looking at every little detail complaining. As the song goes...be true to yourself. x
