The Kooks – Be Who You Are

[Intro]
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da

[Verse 1]
You don’t know who you are
The road’s gonna take you, make you walk too far
You’re a liar, you’re a thief, you’re a star
But you don’t know who you are

[Pre-Chorus]
You are just a kid with a sentimental heart
Afraid of what would happen before you ever start
And you don’t need the baggage and you don’t need the stuff
And you don’t need nobody to fill your empty cup

[Chorus]
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Baby you’re a star)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da

[Verse 2]
Never give up, Coltrane
Never been a slave to your own name
You’re a poet, you’re a fake, you’re a star
But you don’t know who you are

[Pre-Chorus]
We could shine a light here inside the dark
And get a little closer, lonely spark
When there’s nothing left to win and you could only lose
What’s keeping you from doing what you always wanna do

[Chorus]
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Baby you’re a star)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)

[Bridge]
Lately I’ve been feeling
Like the stars are rolling out for me
Stars are rolling out
Lately I’ve been feeling
But the stars are rolling out for me
Stars are rolling out
But maybe they’re misleading
Is it just a light reflecting off the street?

[Pre-Chorus]
And you are just a kid with a sentimental heart
And do it for yourself and do it for the art
You don’t need the baggage, you don’t need the stuff
You don’t need nobody to fill your empty cup

[Chorus]
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be, be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Baby you’re a star)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Be who you are)
Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
(Baby you’re a star)
Ta, ta, ta-da-da-da
