Lyrics:

I am me, and I know I will always be
Je suis free, oui, j’invente ma vie
Ne me demandez pas qui je suis
Moi je suis le même depuis tout petit
Et malgré les regards, les avis
Je pleure, je sors et je ris
You put me in a box, want me to be like you
Je suis pas dans les codes, ça dérange beaucoup
At the end of the day, you cannot change me, boo
Alors, laisse-moi m’envoler
I, I’m not rich, but I’m shining bright
I can see my kingdom now
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
I’m not rich, but I’m shining bright
I can see my kingdom now
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
And I know-oh-oh-ow, even though-oh-oh-oh
You try to take me down, you cannot break me, nah, nah
Toutes ces voix: “Fais comme ci, fais comme ça”
Moi, je les cala pas, you can never remove my crown
Who are we?
When we hurt, when we fight for free
Only God can judge you and me
Ce qu’on est, on ne l’a pas choisi
On choisit
Son travail, sa coiffure, ses amis
Sa routine, parfois l’amour aussi
Ça passe ou ça casse, mais ça regarde qui?
I, I’m not rich, but I’m shining bright
I can see my kingdom now
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
I’m not rich, but I’m shining bright
I can see my kingdom now
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
And I know-oh-oh-ow, even though-oh-oh-oh
You try to take me down, you cannot break me, nah, nah
Toutes ces voix: “Fais comme ci, fais comme ça”
Moi, je les cala pas, you can never remove my crown
Quand je rêve, je suis un roi
