Here I Am
(words & music Laini Risto and Jim Fischer 2003)

Here I am, Standing at the door.
Looking back at life as it's been before.
Holding on, to dreams that might have been.
Knowing that this day will never come again.

As my spirit's guiding me
To a place where I am free,
To be all that I can be.

Here I am, in stories that I know.
Feeling safe yet yearning to go.
Time and Dreams partners in a dance.
Taking steps with every new chance.

As my spirit's guiding me
To a place where I am free
To be all that I can be.

Deep in despair, thinking that no one really cared.
I wandered lost and afraid
But with each new tomorrow
I can leave this sorrow
And change won't wait for yesterday.

Here I am, feet upon new shores.
River deep before me crying there is more.
Ships of dreams, sailing through the stars,
Winds are calling follow your heart.

As my spirits guiding me
To a place where I am free
To be all that I can be

Here I am, Here I am.... Here... I AM
