I'm not like all the others
I try my best to fit in
but that’s just not my style.
When people say that I am odd,
I simply give a smile.

I’m not like all the others;
I guess that much is true.
But I’m content to stand alone.
It’s really nothing new.

I’ll always be the odd one
as I go my own way.
But I’ll be true to my own self
no matter what they say.

I listened to my mother.
She gave me this advice:
Stand fast and firm with your beliefs
no matter what the price.

Don’t let them overwhelm you.
Don’t let them quell your voice.
Although you’re not like all the rest,
you never had a choice.

It always is the dreamer
who is the very best.
He’s not like all the other ones;
he’s different than the rest.

Be proud of your own nature.
Don’t let them put you down.
If not for all of those who dared
then nothing would be found.

Some day you will be noticed
for what you have achieved.
Some day you will be recognized.
Till then you must believe.

Believe in what you stand for.
Believe in who you are.
Believe that some day they will know
you are a shining star.
