Lyrics

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I was ready to be grown-up
Just waiting for the day
And now I am freaking
Does mommy feel this way?

See, they think that I have answers
They look to me to guide
They see this old, old woman
But there's a little girl inside

I'm not myself today
I'm in a funny way
I'm not the thing they think they see
This alpha mommy -
She's not me

They want a woman I can't be
And words that I can't say
I'm not the woman
I thought I was
I'm not myself today

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I had no idea a woman
Could feel so damn dismissed
They smile and call me "sweetheart"
Does Ellie feel like this?

See, if only they would listen
I could get the search on track
But when they hear me talking
They just think I'm talking back

I'm not myself tonight
And more than me is not right
Cause Fletcher's lost
And so am I

It's not that often bye the bye
I wish I were a six-foot guy
But I want to win this fight
I'm not the woman I need to be
I'm not myself tonight

Torrey:
If I had a kid
And the kid ran away
I'd hunt him down and kill him
My god! What a thing to say!

If I had a kid
And the kid ran away
I would find him
I would hold him
And then I'd kill him, okay?

I'm sorry, I'm not myself today!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
Hey, are you okay?

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Are you okay?

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not okay

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
What a day!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
Even with all of this
Mess up between us
I thought I would do better

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I thought I know the way

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I mean, even as you
I'm a mess of a person
Can't get my crap together

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm also a mess I'd say

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not myself today!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not myself today!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not myself today!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not myself

Both:
I'm not myself today!

(All three singing together incoherently)

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I never felt so young and small

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
It breaks my heart
To hear them call
When there's nothing I can say

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not the woman I thought I was

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not the woman I wish I'd be
I'm not myself today

Both:
I'm not myself today

All:
Fletcher!
Fletcher!
Fletcher!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I was ready to be grown up
Just waiting for the day
And now I am, I'm freaking!
Does mommy feel this way?

See, they think that I have answers
They look to me to guide
They see this old, old woman
But there's a little girl inside

I'm not myself today
I'm in a funny way
I'm not the thing they think they see

This alpha mommy, she's not me
They want a woman I can't be
And words that I can't say
I'm not myself, I'm not myself today

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
They are all so condescending
It's really not okay
They smile and call me "sweetheart"
Does Ellie feel this way?

See, if only they would listen
I could get the search on track
But when they hear me talking
They just think I'm talking back

I'm not myself tonight
And more than me's not right
'Cause Fletcher's lost and so am I

It's not that often, by-the-by
I wish I were a six foot guy!
But I wanna win this fight
I'm not myself, I'm not myself tonight

Torrey:
If I had a kid
And the kid ran away
I'd hunt him down and kill him
Oh no!
What a thing to say!

If I had a kid and the kid ran away
I would find him, I would hold him
And then I'd kill him! Okay?!
I'm sorry!
I'm not myself today!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not myself today!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not myself today!

Torrey:
I'm not myself!

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not myself today!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not myself today!

Both:
I'm in over way
I know I should be standing tall

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I've never felt so young and small

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
It breaks my heart to hear them call

Both:
When there's nothing I can say

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not the woman I thought I was

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not the woman I wished I'd be

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
I'm not myself

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm not myself

Both:
Today

Torrey:
Hey Fletcher!
Fletcher!

Everyone:
Hey!
