  • My life is a movie and everyone's watching
    So let's get to the good part and past all the nonsense

    Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing
    When the pressure's coming down like lightning
    It's like they want me to be perfect
    When they don't even know that I'm hurting

    'Cause life's not easy, I'm not made out of steel
    Don't forget that I'm human, don't forget that I'm real
    Act like you know me, but you never will
    But there's one thing that I know for sure
    I'll show you
    I'll show you
    I'll show you
    I'll show you

    I've got to learn things, learn them the hard way
    Got to see what it feels like, no matter what they say

    Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing
    When the pressure's coming down like lightning
    It's like they want me to be perfect
    When they don't even know that I'm hurting

    'Cause life's not easy, I'm not made out of steel
    Don't forget that I'm human, don't forget that I'm real
    Act like you know me, but you never will
    But there's one thing that I know for sure
    I'll show you
    I'll show you
    I'll show you
    I'll show you
    'Cause life's not easy, I'm not made out of steel
    Don't forget that I'm human, don't forget that I'm real
    Act like you know me, but you never will
    But there's one thing that I know for sure

    I'll show you
    I'll show you Writer/s: Joshua Gudwin, Justin Drew Bieber, Michael Tucker, Sonny Moore, Theron Otis Feemster
