For years I've been striving To make an art outta hiding Smile real big Like I'm doing alright Pristine on the outside But inside I'm dying Trying too hard To prove I'm fine
Can't stay This way No more No more Mr. Nice Guy Welcome to the new me Taking off my disguise Chasing something risky
I'm a grown-up now Got a house and a family "Better safe than sorry" ringing in my ears Right about now I need to break out To be what you made me Free from lies, free from fear
No more Mr. Nice Guy Welcome to the new me Taking off my disguise Chasing something risky
I never knew it could just be me Now I'm never going back To what I used to be What a relief it is to be free Now I'm never going back To what I used to be Nice guy
Nothing more risky than living risk free Staying in the lines never gave us Sistines Rather lose life than waste it Keep the combination No more playing it safe, kid Second rate you or a first rate me Rate me, rank me, praise hate me but Kb I'm living for what He would say Only gonna be one me today The one that's freed with grace What did Needham say?
