My next and last (will hopefully work on more soon) song was inspired after constantly listening to @thegreatestshowman
“This Is Me” written by @pasekandpaul
). This song is called “I Wanna Be Me.” Similar to “This Is Me,” this song is pretty much an anthem about finally standing up for yourself, showing the world who you really are, and not being afraid to do so... but in the concept of “coming out of the closet.”
Being a gay man myself, I can relate to these lyrics that I wrote with my own coming out story. I wanted everyone to see the real me and I was tired of hiding that. It’s not easy coming out, but when one is ready to do so, boy does it feel good because there’s no more keeping secrets or pretending to be someone you are not... there’s just you living your life as you. By letting yourself go, you become free. That’s the message of this song.
I hope that this song can serve as some comfort or even motivation to those that are having a hard time coming out. Unlike my other recordings of my original songs, I sang this a cappella because I imagine a certain sound to it that would require drums (which I do not play). This recording is not the whole song but pretty much close to it. Please like and share this song, as this is one that I’m very proud to have written.
