Expectations

Just saying “no” to peer pressure.

I might look kind of funny compared to you
And I don’t do the kinds of things you do
But just ’cause we’re diff’rent doesn’t make it right
To tell me I’m wrong and try to start a fight

chorus
I don’t have to live down to your expectations
Not gonna be what you want me to be
Go ahead and say what you have to say
‘Cause I don’t really care what you think of me

What “everyone” does isn’t always best
You don’t have to go along with the rest
To go it alone might be a bitter pill
But I think for myself and I always will

chorus
I don’t have to live down to your expectations
Not gonna be what you want me to be
Go ahead and say what you have to say
‘Cause I don’t really care what you think of me

bridge
I’m not alone
Lots of other people feel the way I do
I’m not a clone
I won’t live a lie to make peace with you

chorus
I don’t have to live down to your expectations
Not gonna be what you want me to be
Go ahead and say what you have to say
‘Cause I don’t really care what you think of me
