lyrics

Nothing To Do With Me

I keep on knocking on closed doors.
Keep on searching for another lost cause.
I can see inside… but I know it’s not for me.
Though I’ve dotted the “I’s” and I’ve crossed the “T’s”
I may have said yes, now but I wish I’d said no!
So which part of me stays and which part of me goes
Is it the self-believer or the negative fool?
Or the one who obeys, or the one who breaks the rules?
The mischief-maker, or the plastic-saint? …
For I am what I am and I ain’t what I ain’t!

I keep on walking in dead-end streets.
Forever a talking and a shuffling my feet.
Unable to see your point of view.
I’m last in the line when you form a queue.
And, when it’s my turn, I turn away.
I never learned the right thing to say.
I get tongue-tied and I sound like a fool.
I’ve never learned how to bend the rules.
I’m not a devil… but I'm neither a saint…
For I am what I am and I ain’t what I ain’t!
I am what I am...
And I ain’t what I ain’t!

Whatever I do… I do….
It’s got nothing to do with you!
And whatever you see… you see…
It’s got nothing to do with me!

I keep on looking for a place to hide.
In the sun or the shade, it’s hard to decide.
It all depends on what mood I’m in.
And whether, I ever want to see you again.
I know in the past we’ve arranged to meet
And, I’ve said something stupid, said something indiscreet.
You took offence and treated me like a fool
I wish for once, I’d broken one of your rules.
Then, you’d see me just as I am
Crumbling under my own restrain
For I am what I am and I ain’t what I ain’t!
I am what I am and I ain’t what I ain’t!

So whatever I do… I do….
It’s got nothing to do with you!
And whatever you see… you see…
It’s got nothing to do with me!
