Cassie Davis — Necessarily lyrics

They say to get on in this life
You gotta live right
Go to school and keep your grades tight
And you mustn't miss a round
Keep your nose to the ground
But the thing that I found

I can't do that it just ain't me
You don't know you better ask somebody
Still I hear 'em telling me to get my degree
Saying it's the only way I'm gonna succeed

Well I don't necessarily wanna live that way
I make my own rules when I play
This game
Called life I know you think I'm crazy
But I don't necessarily wanna live like that
So when I'm coming up to bat
You think I'm a failure
But I got heart
And I'm gonna hit this out the park

I just don't wanna live that way

See I'm just tryna live my life
I got my own way of doin' things
Not saying you're wrong
It just ain't right for me
This is what I know
So this is how I do
Well that's just how I do

I go againt the grains
And I'll be just fine
Stand up from the crowd
I'm gonna get mine
There's a fraction
Too much friction
But I love fireworks
Bout too see the sparks flyin'

Well I don't necessarily wanna live that way
I make my own rules when I play
This game
Called life I know you think I'm crazy
But I don't necessarily wanna live like that
So when I'm coming up to bat
You think I'm a failure
But I got heart
And I'm gonna hit this out the park

And no-one seems to get this
No I'm not being rebellious
I just don't wanna to live that way
I can't help it, it's just me
And maybe one day you'll see
That I just make my own rules when I play

But I don't necessarily wanna live like that
So when I'm coming up to bat
You think I'm a failure
But I got heart
And I'm gonna hit this out the park

Well I don't necessarily wanna live that way
I make my own rules when I play
This game
Called life I know you think I'm crazy
But I don't necessarily wanna live like that
So when I'm coming up to bat
You think I'm a failure
But I got heart
And I'm gonna hit this out the park
