Me

Whilst relaxing in the most enjoyable manor of my half day, before I started my work, I was flicking through channels and landed on E4, as I usually do, and I ended up listening to the theme tune of One Tree Hill. Here are the lyrics if you dont know them :

I don’t need to be anything other than a prison guard’s son I don’t need to be anything other than a specialist’s son I don’t have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one Part of where I’m going is knowing where I’m coming from I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta do Or who I’m supposed to be I don’t want to be anything other than me I’m surrounded by liars everywhere I turn I’m surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn I’m surrounded by a deadly crisis everywhere I turn Am I the only one to notice? I can’t be the only one who’s learned I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately All I have to do is think about me and I have peace of mind I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta do Or who I’m supposed to be I don’t want to be anything other than me Can I have everyone’s attention please See, not like this and that You’re gonna have to leave I came from the mountain, the crust of creation My whole situation made from clay, dust, stone And now I’m telling everybody I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I’m trying to d Or who I’m supposed to be I don’t want to be anything other than me I don’t want to be I don’t want to be I don’t want to be I don’t want to be – Gavin Degrew

It stood out to me the small section that is on the title credits that i went and found the whole song on youtube and it has summed up places in my life where I have felt like that and never found the way to escape to be until recently.

The part where it says:
Can I have everyone’s attention please See, not like this and that You’re gonna have to leave I came from the mountain, the crust of creation My whole situation made from clay, dust, stone And now I’m telling everybody

Made me think about Ash Wednesday, I go to a catholic Sixth Form and took part in liturgy this year with ash and dust and that’s where one day I will return but until then I know now that in the words of Gavin Degrew “I don’t want to be anything other than me”
