  • What if we were all the same?
    Same rules, same game
    And we weren't allowed to change anything about anything
    That anybody's ever done before?
    Wouldn't that be boring, yeah

    Always spinning on a ride, all walking on a line
    That they drew a long time ago
    When you know that you don't have to go where they go
    You can go write your own story

    Hey, hey, you gotta be
    Who you oughta be
    So who do you wanna be?
    Oh

    You can choose if you're bad, if you're good
    If you're left or right, speaking your heart or speaking your mind
    You can be what they say you can be, a cliche
    You can tear up the box and throw it away
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Everybody gotta dream out loud
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Square pegs make the world go 'round

    There's a lot of open doors you can go and explore
    You can always open more if you're hitting a wall
    Dropping the ball, haven't we all
    Been down that same hallway?
    So let 'em talk and whisper, let 'em try to fix ya
    Repaint your picture, at the end of the day
    It fits in your frame,
    Just 'cause you're different don't mean you're crazy

    Hey, hey, you gotta sing
    Like nobody's listening
    'Cause somebody's listening, yeah
    Oh

    You can choose if you're bad, if you're good
    If you're left or right, speaking your heart or speaking your mind
    You can be what they say you can be, a cliche
    You can tear up the box and throw it away
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Everybody gotta dream out loud
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Square pegs make the world go 'round

    They make the world go 'round

    Hey, hey, you gotta be
    Who you oughta be
    So who do you wanna be?
    Whoa, oh

    You can choose if you're bad, if you're good
    If you're left or right, speaking your heart or speaking your mind
    You can be what they say you can be, a cliche
    You can tear up the box and throw it away
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Everybody gotta dream out loud
    Everybody gotta be themselves
    Square pegs make the world go 'round

    Hey, you gotta be
    Who you wanna be, so
    Who do you wanna be?
    Square pegs make the world go 'round

    Hey, you gotta be
    Who you wanna be, so
    Who do you wanna be?
    Square pegs make the world go 'round Writer/s: Joshua Shaun Osborne, Kelsea Nicole Ballerini, Scott B. Stepakoff
