Be Who You Are

Album: Best Of… So Far (2017)
  • Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    Ta, ta, ta da da da

    You don't know who you are
    The road's gonna take you, make you walk too far
    You're a liar, you're a thief, you're a star
    But you don't know who you are

    You are just a kid with a sentimental heart
    Afraid of what would happen before you ever start
    And you don't need the baggage and you don't need the stuff
    And you don't need nobody to fill your empty cup

    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Baby you're a star)
    Ta, ta, ta da da da

    Never give up, Coltrane
    Never be a slave to your own name
    You're a poet, you're a fake, you're a star
    But you don't know who you are

    We could shine a light here inside the dark
    And get a little closer, lonely spark
    When there's nothing left to win and you could only lose
    What's keeping you from doing what you always wanna do

    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Baby you're a star)
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)

    Lately I've been feeling
    Like the stars are rolling out for me
    Stars are rolling out
    Lately I've been feeling
    But the stars are rolling out for me
    Stars are rolling out
    But maybe they're misleading
    Is it just a light reflecting off the street?

    And you are just a kid with a sentimental heart
    And do it for yourself and do it for the art
    You don't need the baggage, you don't need the stuff
    You don't need nobody to fill your empty cup

    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be, be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Baby you're a star)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Be who you are)
    Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta da da da
    (Baby you're a star)
