I Don’t Wanna Be

by Cheri Roberts

<v-1>

I don’t wanna be the bad side of your town.

I don’t wanna be the mood that brings you down.

We were right when it was wrong

Then we played it out too long

Now I don’t wanna be.

*

<v-2>

I don’t wanna be the thorn that’s in your side.

I don’t wanna be the scar you try to hide.

I’ve cried way too many tears

Too afraid to face my fears

So I don’t wanna be.

*

<CHORUS>

I don’t wanna be

It’s time to set me free

We’ve gone on so selfishly

It’s time that we both see

This river’s flowed it’s course

There is nothing we can force

It’s headed out to sea

So accept this wave from me

I’m just a bad ol’ memory

And I don’t wanna be.

*

<v-3>

I don’t wanna be the question you ask why.

I don’t wanna be the heavy in your sigh.

The years have come and gone

And you’re the only one who’s won

So I don’t wanna be.

*

<v-4>

I don’t wanna be the ghost that hangs around.

I don’t wanna be the ties that leave you bound.

Although it will be rough

I think I’ve had enough

Cuz I don’t wanna be.

*

<CHORUS>

I don’t wanna be

It’s time to set me free

We’ve gone on so selfishly

It’s time that we both see

This river’s flowed it’s course

There’s nothing we can force

It’s headed out to sea

So accept this wave from me

I’m just a bad ol’ memory

And I don’t wanna be.

*

<v-5>

I don’t wanna be the darkness of your night.

I don’t wanna be the urge you have to fight.

I was just a plastic star

Left atop your heart-filled jar,

Now I don’t wanna be.

*

<CHORUS>

I don’t wanna be

It’s time to set me free

We’ve gone on so selfishly

It’s time that we both see

This river’s flowed it’s course

There’s nothing we can force

It’s headed out to sea

So accept this wave from me

I’m just a bad ol’ memory

And I don’t wanna be.

No matter near or far

I was just your plastic star

Now I don’t wanna be.

Now I don’t wanna be.
