Pearls and a girl

See, as people we try to please one another
In order to be equal, we lie so we don’t have to suffer
But I’m tired of hiding for the benefit of my peers
What’s so wrong with shining?
Why’ve you got so much fear?

I will be myself cause I like who I’m becoming
If you’re ready come with me, these boots are made for running
But, I’m sick of running in circles around ya
This ain't about ya, this ain't about ya
