Johnny Clegg & Savuka - I Can Never Be (What You Want Me To Be) lyrics

Shooting star across my sky
I wanted to keep you in my heaven
"I will be anything you want!" I said
"I will live into your dream just to see you smile"
"Be my baby -- I'll be your crusade
your clown-lover, renegade
I'll be anything you want if it will make you stay"
-- oh but it could never be that way cause:

I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be
I have sailed this impossible ocean
I have sailed this crazy sea
I can never be what you want,
whatever you want me to be

The great pretender inside your head
a king wearing someone else's crown
sacrificed who I am so that this heart could be fed
I spend so much time keeping myself underground
You know I love you but I am shaking inside
I know I'm not going to leave here alive 'cause:

I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be
I have sailed this impossible ocean
I have sailed this crazy sea
I can never be what you want,
whatever you want me to be

There is a spirit rising against what I have become
I have to come out and choose to stay our make my run
I'm slowly dying, I have to make a stand
I'm coming home, you'll have to take me for what I am

I can never be what you want
I can never be what you want me to be
I have sailed this impossible ocean
I have sailed this crazy sea
I can never be what you want,
whatever you want me to be

Be? I can never be!
I can never be what you want!
I can never be what you want me to be!
