Be Who You Really Want to Be

from Campfire Songs by Richard Turgeon



Sometimes it’s like we’re stuck in one place
Sometimes we’re stuck here with ourselves
You have a choice no matter where you are
Pick up and move to someone else

Don’t let them tell you what you’re thinking
Some master plan that you can’t see
You’ll find your way before you’ve found yourself d
Be who you really want to be

Just when you think you’ve found the answers
The world will spin around again
Open the book and tell your story
The pages turn until the end

We’re all just fumbling in the darkness
Looking for light to guide our way
Stay wide awake or you’ll die sleeping
Say what you really wanna say…
