That's Not Me - The Beach Boys

Brian Wilson & Tony Asher (Irving Music)

I had to prove that I could make it alone, but that's not me,
I wanted to show how independent I'd grown, but that's not me,
I'd try to be big in the eyes of the world
But what matters to me is what I could be to just one girl

I'm a little bit scared 'cause I haven't been home in a long time.
You needed my love and I know that I left at the wrong time,

My folks when I wrote them and told 'em what I was up to said that's not me,
Went through all kinds of changes, took a look at myself and said that's not me,

I miss my pad and the places I've known and every night as I lay there alone

I will dream

I once had a dream so I packed up and split for the city,
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

I'm glad I went
Now I'm that much more sure that we're ready

I once had a dream so I packed up and split for the city,
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty

I once had a dream so I packed up and split for the city,
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty
