I remember first hearing this song on American Idol by the contestant that sang it and I heard wrote it, Bo Bice. I remember first hearing it on the radio, it just debuted or something. I guess it was too new for me to get the singers name, because later on that week, Bo Bice sang it, and I thought oh, he's singing that new song on the radio. Then American Idol said Bo Bice wrote the song. Now Gavin Degraw sings it, but that is way after hearing it on Season 4 of American Idol, with Bo Bice, Constatine, and Carrie Underwood, who won American Idol season 4.
Ok, Bo Bice sang the song, which had a much harder edge. Gavin Degraw actually did pretty well with it!

Not a real big fan of Gavin DeGraw, but I like this song. It is a great mix of a country and rock sound, and it has a catchy melody line. The quality of the MP3 is about right, although I may end up buying the CD to get a cleaner version of the song. To me, the piano sounds a little muffled, but then again I am pretty pedantic about music.

BTW, if you get a chance, watch for Gavin on "Live from Darryl's House" on the Palladia channel. He does a duet of this song with Darryl Hall, and the two voices blend perfectly. Almost prefer it to the original, and wish they would release a recording.

In this song the guy has found the part of himself that he is comfortable with in a world full of lies and deceptions. And despite the things around him he draws on his past and gives up fitting the mold. He realizes that he doesnt want to be anything other that what he has been.....Original.
I'm a girl and i can really relate. For example you're peers and overly concerned relatives think youre weird just because you dont want to drive or you rather study animals and read than be brainless like most teenagers. I dont want to be.
Totally Rocking Song!!!!!

(que movie preview announcer voice) In a world gone mad with cookie cutter, sound alike artists, once in a great while there comes a voice so different, so unique that one is compelled to listen. Gavin Degraw is such a voice.

Solid tune. It has a few moments that lack power and substance, but for the most part it creates a sense of musical drama, which when real and earned, always makes a song memorable.
