I've Gotta Be Me
Ivegottabeme
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: April 26, 2011
By: Sammy Davis, Jr.
Sung by: Finn Hudson
Place: The Choir Room
Episode: Born This Way

I've Gotta Be Me by Sammy Davis, Jr. is featured in Born This Way, the eighteenth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Finn and danced to by Mike, as an assignment about insecurities.

Finn sings it to come to terms with his dancing abilities after breaking Rachel's nose. By the end of the performance, Finn says that he feels like his dancing improved, which the New Directions don't respond to. This comes up as a problem in Season Three, as Finn has to attend Mr. Schue's booty camp program.

Lyrics

Finn:
Whether I'm right or whether I'm wrong
Whether I find a place in this world or never belong
I've gotta be me, I've gotta be me
What else can I be but what I am

I want to live, not merely survive
And I won't give up this dream of life that keeps me alive
I've gotta be me, I've gotta be me
The dream that I see makes me what I am

That faraway prize, a world of success
Is waiting for me if I heed the call
I won't settle down, won't settle for less
As long as there's a chance that I can have it all

I'll go it alone, that's how it must be
I can't be right for somebody else if I'm not right for me
I gotta be free, I've gotta be free
Daring to try, to do it or die, I've gotta be me

(Instrumental Break)

That faraway prize, a world of success
Is waiting for me if I heed the call
I won't settle down, won't settle for less
As long as there's a chance that I can have it all

I'll go it alone, that's how it must be
I can't be right for somebody else if I'm not right for me
I gotta be free, I just gotta be free
Daring to try, to do it or die
I've gotta ... be me!
