  • I'm on the move
    I don't wanna lose what I came to prove
    (It's everything)
    I expect myself to be
    And I'm gonna do everything I set out to
    Making my dreams come true
    It means so much to me
    But you could never understand
    How I feel when I'm searching for the words to say
    And I don't wanna be nobody else
    Take the time and get to know me
    (The real me)
    And you will see, yeah

    (I'm just like you)
    I'm tryna take my time and get to know me
    (I'm just like you)
    Tryna live my life and take care of mine
    (I'm just like you, you)
    I'm tryna be happy
    (I'm just like you)
    Ooh-whoa whoa-whoa whoa

    I wanna be the one who you can depend on
    And when it feels so bad, know I can handle it
    'Cause I've been through so much, oh
    It's so much I've overcome
    I had to look inside of me and see just who's inside of me
    And know who I need was me
    (Ooh, it took so much for me just to see it's all in me)
    And you could never understand (uh)
    How I feel when I'm searching for the words to say
    And I don't wanna be nobody else

    Try to take the time and get to know me
    The real me
    And you will see, yeah

    (I'm just like you)
    I'm tryna take my time and get to know me
    (I'm just like you)
    I'm tryna live my life and take care of mine
    (I'm just like you, you)
    I'm tryna be happy
    (I'm just like you)
    Oh

    You know blessed be the Lord my strength
    Which teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight
    Through it all he's protected me along the way
    And I wanna thank you
    'Cause without you I'm nothing

    (I'm just like you)

    I know it gets a little hard
    But He will take care of you
    (If you trust and believe and have faith)
    Oh
    And if you

    (Look in the mirror, look in the mirror, what do you see?)
    (Look in the mirror, look in the mirror, what do you see?)
    (Look in the mirror, look in the mirror, what do you see?)
