Mike Posner Be as You Are Lyrics

(Verse)
Virginia Woolf and poetry
No one seemed to notice me
Bein' young was gettin' so old
Cheap beer and cigarettes
Life was like a movie set
And I seemed to be given no role

(Pre-Chorus)
But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon understand
So at age twenty two
I cried to my mother
And she told me, 'young man',

(Chorus)
'There are moments when u fall to the ground
But u are stronger than u feel u are now
U don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as u are
Life is not always a comfortable ride
Everybody's got scars that they hide
And everybody plays the fool sometimes, yeah
Just be as u are!'

(Verse 2)
They played me on the radio
And everythin' was changin', so
I thought I was all the way grown
But I can still remember in that cold November
When I realized I'm all alone

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)
'There are moments when u fall to the ground
But u are stronger than u feel u are now
U don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as u are
It doesn't matter if u become some star
Life is betta when u open ur heart
U don't always have to act so hard, no
Just be as u are!'

(Bridge)
If I'm speakin' truthfully
I'm not who I used to be
And I know some people might laugh
Cos' my music doesn't sound the same
And my head's no longer shaved
I'm worried if I'm on the right path

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)
