FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI


Free To Be Me Lyrics

At twenty years of age
I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can't always see

'Cause I got a couple dents in my Fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me

When I was just a girl
I thought I had it figured out
See my life would turn out right
And I'd make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt, oh

'Cause I got a couple dents in my Fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me and You're free to be You

Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think
I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek, oh
And it's easy to believe even though

'Cause I got a couple dents in my Fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see

I got a couple dents in my Fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me and You're free to be You

When she was little, she thought she didn't need God and that she had to be someone that she wasn't. But with God, she may be imperfect but she can be herself. This song inspired me to be myself and helped me get closer to God.

Love love love it!!!!!!! I just heard it on the radio and was like, Thats so true! Btw, I know that ppl say to be yourself when life isn't that easy that you can always e able to be confident about who you are. Life is just like that, but even if your not too confident about who you are, you should be. I mean, the real me is a totes weirdo( in a good way). So if I'm able to say that, and not be afraid shouldn't you be? I love who I am. You should love who you are. Life doesn't always go as planned. But he has a plan for you. Never forget that, and be proud! Don't be ashamed. I know my reply was long but that's for reading it! Cause that's me! A long long long writer. I'm outta space ahh! Lol

I am doing a project in school where you have to find a song that touches you, in the inside and you have to get the lyrics of it. I'm picking this one!
