Born To Be What I Want To Be

Born To Be What I Want To Be

Copyright Joel Lerner 11-7-12

 

Have you ever searched for hope with a microscope?

Have you ever crashed the Vatican to see the Pope?

Have you ever reached down in your heart and soul?

And if you did when done did you fill the hole?

 

When the chips are down do you smile or frown?

Are you born for failure or glory bound?

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon

But I’ve got the mindset of an oil tycoon

 

I was born to be what I want to be

Never gonna be a guppy in a shark filled sea

You’re not a failure less you fail to try

And I’m gonna make my mark before I die

Cause I was born to be what I want to be

I want to live large and be free to be me

 

I’m tearing down the barriers to reach the top

I’m not scared of heights, not afraid to drop

Time is finite so I can’t slow down

When you quit treading water that’s when you drown

 

I’m a freight train racing down the track

I’ve lost a lot of time and I want it back

Can’t say just when I’ll achieve my goals

But I don’t need no shovel, I ain’t digging no hole

 

I was born to be what I want to be

Never gonna be a guppy in a shark filled sea

You’re not a failure less you fail to try

And I’m gonna make my mark before I die

Cause I was born to be what I want to be

Living large and free to be me

 

Have you ever searched for hope with a microscope?

Have you ever crashed the Vatican to see the Pope?

Have you ever reached down deep in your heart and soul?

And if you did when done did you fill the hole?

 

When the chips are down do you smile or frown?

Are you born for failure or glory bound?

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon

But I’ve got the mindset of an oil tycoon

 

I was born to be what I want to be

Never gonna be a guppy in a shark filled sea

You’re not a failure less you fail to try

And I’m gonna make my mark before I die

Cause I was born to be what I want to be

I want to live large and be free to be me
