lyrics

They mistake your individuality
For a flaw in your personality
And I think that they’ve lost their sanity
Hey, hey, hey, hey
You, you’re a beautiful reflection
Of a light that shines in your direction
There’s nothing about you that isn’t perfect in every way
Hey, hey, hey, hey

So just go, go just go against the grain
You don’t have to be the same
As everyone around you
I know what you’re going through
Follow the voice inside you
And be brave
And go, go, go against the grain

Just because you are young in years
Don’t mean that, mean that you can’t see clear
All of those glitter kids don’t turn out to be gold
No, no, no, no

So go, go, go against the grain
You don’t have to be the same
As everyone around you
I know what you’re going through
Follow the voice inside you
And be brave
And go, go, just go against the grain
Go, go against the grain

No matter what you do
Someone always thinks you ain’t cool
I know what is true

So go, go against the grain
You, you don’t have don’t have to change
Like everyone around you
Stay brave
And go against the grain
Go, just go against the grain
