When I was a young boy I was told
I could become anything that I wanted to be
Followed all the paths they laid before me now I've learned
Never lead where I thought they would lead
You can hold me down but you can’t break me
You may think you can but you can’t shake me
You may trust your god but he won’t save me
Don’t think you can take anything from me
Now that I am grown
Do I like what I’ve become?
Is it all that I thought it would be?
Back where it began
And anything has come and gone
I will be what I wanted to be
