James Gillespie - Don't Let Me Get Me Lyrics




Never win first place, I don't support the team
I can't take direction and my socks are never
Clean
Teachers dated me, my parents hated me
I was always in a fight because I can't do nothin'
Right

Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
I can't take the person staring back at me

I'm a hazard to myself
Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
I don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
I wanna be somebody else

LA told me, "You'll be a pop star
All you have to change is everything you are."
Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears
She's so pretty, that just ain't me

Doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe mesomething
A day in the life of someone else?
Cuz I'm a hazard to myself

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

So doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe
Something
A day in the life of someone else?

Cuz I'm a hazard to myself
Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
I wanna be somebody else

    TimboSlice1089, thank you for stating my opinion was wrong, while you're at it, could you wipe my backside for me? As I must be doing that wrong too.

  35. Sumrit Chamber

    The controlled holding back of voice thing that he did .. he took it to another level with that skill.

  36. emiliano sbaraglia

    amazing voice !

  37. beenlovingyoutoolong

    Prefer this over original honestly. Such raw emotion, and that voice! On repeat

    LongLyric Music

    Thanks for the channel view, every little helps... and you think you offended me? aha naaah I was just taking the piss out of you and your comments... It's what us Brits do.

    LongLyric Music

    In other words I spelt it correctly in context then?...seems like I offended you don't ya think? Lol...

    beenlovingyoutoolong

    TimboSlice1089 commenting on others spelling/grammar but it's actually *YOU'RE a bitch. Which everyone has come to the conclusion of already about you. You must lead a terrible life and for that I'm sorry. You need medical help, too bad you're an American and by the looks of it has too much time on their hands to be working to have coverage. All the best though.
    From a Canadian.

    Mark Bolton

    We can tell you're American by your terrible grammar and the fact that you troll people online... Oh, and Kimbo Slice is dead. Did you hear? Time to pick a new handle; maybe try thinking of something original.

  38. Pavel Gerasimchuk

  55. morapedi masima

    AMAZING!!...But I think he would've done even better with an acoustic guitar

    Luis Alberto Pérez Nájera

    morapedi masima Maybe you don't know there is not a big difference between an 'acoustic' guitar and an electric disconnected one.
