Lyrics:

"WHO I AM"

I'm sick of bein' someone else for you
And I'm so sick of holding back
And I don't wanna sacrifice my life for truth
Making you happy is a trap

I don't understand how to play this game
You push me to the back and start callin' me names
'Cause my definition makes you feel ashamed
I'm not lyin' anymore

I don't need your permission
On my own I can stand
I will only find happiness
When I'm proud of who I am

You made me strong enough to break free
To find myself again
I will only find happiness
When I'm proud of who I am, am, am
Who I am, am, am
What I am, am, am
Who I am, am, am

Well, I'm tired of wasting all my energy
Tryin' to be good enough for you
And I hid my pain to make you happy, oh
So you have no excuse to talk

Maybe I was blind to think I had no choice
And who gave you the right to take away my voice?
I stand here as my life unfolds, ready to let ya' know
I'm not walkin' alone

[repeat chorus]

Oh, say you're proud of me

I didn't need your permission
On my own I could stand
I have finally found happiness
'Cause I'm proud of who I am
