Lyrics

Be Somebody

Written By: Graham Hartke

I don't want to want it
I know they don't even care
I saw when I left there
I know they won't understand

And on down the road
They never wanted me to be somebody
I won't be what I'm told

I tried just to join them
I know they don't even care
I don't want to like it
I know they can't understand

And on down the road
They never wanted me to be somebody
I won't be what I'm told
They'll never bind me that's for sure
And on down the road
They never wanted me to be somebody
I won't be

They never wanted me to be somebody
So I left town and went looking for something
They always wanted me to be just like them
But I like to form my own opinion

I'm always changing
They'll never change
I'm always changing
They'll never change

I don't even care
They don't even know my name
I don't even have
Things that are the same

I know what you wanted
I don't want to want it
I know what you wanted
I don't want to want it

Cornerstore Girl

Written By: Graham Hartke

When I come back babe I'll buy you a diamond ring
When I come back babe I'll buy you a diamond ring
I said I'm going to the corner store I'm gonna buy you some bread
Pretty little girl yeah you don't want none of this

I said I'm going to the corner store
I'm gonna find some water
For my little baby
I didn't know what I told her
But I could of quite of showed her
She's the one for me
I said that girl she's not for free

Come back baby now come back here to me
Come back baby now come back here to me
