Been a boy scout and a choir boy
Been a number and a name
A government statistic
Been a player in the game
Been a piggy in the middle
A face out in the crowd
All of that was someone else
Now I'm saying it out loud

Been a bouncing little baby
The apple of their eye
Been a hero and a villain
I've been proud and I've been shy
Been the dunce out in the corner
I've been the teacher's pet
But if you think you know me
You ain't seen nothing yet

For the first time not the last time
This is me, it's really me
Taking off the mask right now
Stepping up to take a bow
Can you hear me, sending signals
This is me, it's really me
Making waves and making vows
Stepping up to take a bow

I've been a heap of trouble
Been a bundle of joy
I've done good and I've done bad things
I've been happy, been a sad boy
But don't lay an image on me
I've known love and I've known hate
I've been going round in circles
Now it's time to get things straight

For the first time not the last time
This is me, it's really me
Taking off the mask right now
Stepping up to take a bow
Can you hear me, sending signals
This is me, it's really me
Making waves and making vows
Stepping up to take a bow

I've been organised and supervised and analysed and patronised
Criticised and pressurised and hypnotised and compromised

For the first time not the last time
This is me, it's really me
Taking off the mask right now
Stepping up to take a bow
Can you hear me, sending signals
This is me, it's really me
Making waves and making vows
Stepping up to take a bow
