You Don't Know Me

Let me be myself
Not the preacher's kid
Not her sister
Not your friend
Not my man's woman

Let me be myself
Not the black girl from Africa
Not the little girl who's no more
Not the buddy you hang with

Let me be myself
Not my father's daughter
Not my uncle's niece
Not my teacher's student
I just wanna ...

Be myself
A child created in His image
Just who I am
Exactly what He intends me to be
... HIS child.
