Who I Am

lyrics

I remember all those rides
Home on the backroads, that twist and wind
You’d call me over to your lap
And then you’d let me drive

Have you forgotten the games we’d play
On the coffee table, at the end of your day
And that dog you didn’t want
But got me anyway

Oh and what about the name that you gave to me
Have you forgotten
The blood that runs in our veins
Oh and the times that came before
I was just something
You have to explain

I remember when I knew
And not knowing how to tell you
You’d swear the words that I spoke
Were stones that I threw

I haven’t forgotten the look you gave
What you said, and didn’t say
Went from family to stranger
Cause you needed someone to blame

Oh but what about the name that you gave to me
Have you forgotten
The blood that runs in our veins
Oh and the times that came before
I was just something
You have to explain

Who I am
Didn’t end up how you planned
So you threw me off your sinking ship
And started rowing for land

Maybe I won’t look so different
From that far away
I’d like to think we’ll close
This distance that you’ve made

But I can’t swim this sea, or walk on water
And I don’t think you’re coming back for me

Oh I remember the name that you gave to me
I have not forgotten
The blood that runs in our veins
Oh and the times that came before
I was just something
You have to explain

Who I am
Didn’t end up how you planned
But don’t forget that who I was
Is still who I am

I can’t swim this sea, or walk on water
But I think you should come back for me
Yeah I think you should come back for me
