Lyrics

V1
I?ve made a mistake or two
Deep down I know it?s true
A penance for my sins
Will help to see me through
Tomorrow comes in such a rush
And splits the air then leaves a hush

V2
I?ve learnt to survive
And that means that I?m alive
My ego?s there to feed
Never admit defeat
I close my eyes and count to three
And feel those waves crash over me

CHORUS
I am who I am
I don?t know another way
I am who I am
And I got God on my side
I am who I am
And I stand here to be judged
I am who I am
That?s all I am

V3
Light and shade and black and white
Odd and even, wrong and right
Heaven and evil intertwined
The answers all combined
I seem to be coming first and last
Don?t forget the future becomes the past

V4
We?re all gonna die someday
Hope it?s not soon for me
A stone skims three times before
It sinks far from the shore
And in a moment of clarity
I read a life and death story about me

CHORUS
I am who I am
I don?t know another way
I am who I am
And I got God on my side
I am who I am
And I stand here to be judged
I am who I am
That?s all I am
