You're trying to be like, what they want you to be

You're trying to see all of the things they want you to see

You're trying to give the time, the time they want you to give

You're trying to live the life, the life they want you to live

  

But I can see the way, the way you're feeling today

And there's no way

You really believe, you'd love to retrieve

The you that you used to be

But as for me (and Dave)

I'm trying to be like me

  

You're trying to make me another version of you

You're hoping that you'll feel better if I'm a hypocrite too

You're preaching your gospel, the one they taught you to read

But it's dodgy not holy ground, when you don't really believe

  

And I can hear the words, the words that sound so absurd

So absurd

Coming from you, the you that I knew

The you that you used to be

But as for me (and Dave)

I'm trying to be like me

  

Adrian said you have to

Watch where you tread

You're always

Nodding your head

   

In all the right places to all the right faces

'Cause you see a space on the tree

But as for me (and Dave)

I'm trying to be like

Happy to be like

The me that I know I can be

And so you see

I'm trying to be like me

  

  

The Story of 'Trying To Be Like Me'

Gotta Get Away-Kakadu, Australia

A tongue in cheek song for an old mate of mine (Dave) about our old boss

(Before I quit work and ended up on this cliff top in Australia of course!)
