lyrics

You don't impress me with the way you do your hair
I'm not concerned with the clothes you choose to wear
I only like you for the way you carry yourself
Just be natural, let the world take care of itself
It'll be all right

You feel the pressure, it's always on your mind
All this pressure to follow close behind
Don't you listen, break out from the pack
Be your own self, give the costume back
It'll be all right

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want and just what I needed

All around you, in everything you see
Endless pictures of who you're supposed to be
Close your eyes now, let the pictures fade
Take my hand, there's no need to be afraid
It'll be all right

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want and just what I needed

Every time you run away from all
The things you thought would make you fall
Into a place where you were on your own
Turn to me and I will help you see
You don't need to hide your love
And hold it all alone

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want
You're all I want and just what I needed
