I'd Rather Be Me

This song is by Mick Ronson and appears on the album Play Don't Worry (1975).

The day I came it rained champagne
The days that changed, you're not so strange
I am and I can even though some nights I'm just another drunken man
Got to go, can't really stay, watch me take a chance and dance someone and go away.

Taking my time with my women and my wine
I haven't got a hope but I don't need a shrine
Sometimes the lines take a week or two
Breaking my pen over someone like you.

'Cause you'll say something simple that touches me inside
That shows I've been gone but I'll be back in a while
'Cause I've been and I've seen and you're losing your style
And you simply can't see why I'd rather be me.

Talk of deals, not what you feel, it's not what you want, it's not even real
No pain, now there's no gain, I hope you realise that you can't afford to stay the same
You're alright, there's no real bite 'cause you've gotten what you want now there's no real need to fight
Please don't stay in vain 'cause I could be right there if only you could feel the same.

Sat on the throne of your safe little life
Two dog's and a cat and a safe little wife
Sometimes with wine, just a time or two
You'll look at me and I'll look at you.

'Cause you'll say something simple that touches me inside
That shows you're not gone, you're just lost for a while
Maybe trapped in a web of your chosen lifestyle
And you simply can't see why I'd rather be me.
