Finally

Album: Back From The Edge (2016)
  • This is all I ever wanted
    All I ever thought I'd be
    It's the only place I truly feel
    As though I can be me

    But the way I arrived
    It was overnight
    I've been on my worst behaviour
    Been on my worst behaviour

    If only it ain't been like this
    Now I can hold my heart in a fist
    And all the voices leave
    I can finally put it on my sleeve
    Oh, if only they'd really seen it
    Maybe they would finally believe me
    When I say I've won
    And my father gets to see a son
    That he can feel proud of
    He can feel proud of
    He's proud of me

    This is all I ever wanted
    All I ever thought I'd be
    But the way that I behaved
    Could have seemed quite the contrary

    I felt all the lives
    They're out of sight
    I've been on my worst behaviour
    Been on my worst behaviour

    If only I ain't been like this
    Now I can hold my heart in a fist
    And all the voices leave
    I can finally put it on my sleeve
    Oh, if only they'd really seen it
    Maybe they would finally believe me
    When I say I've won
    And my mother gets to see a son
    That she can feel proud of
    She can feel proud of
    She's proud of me

    She's proud of me
    They're proud of me
    They're proud of me
    They're proud of me
    She's proud of me
    She's proud of
    She's proud of
    They're proud of
    They're proud of
    They're proud of me
    They're proud of me
    They're proud of me
    She's proud of
    They're proud of, whoa

    If only I ain't been like this
    Now I can hold my heart in a fist
    And all the voices leave
    I can finally put it on my sleeve
    Oh, if only they'd really seen it
    Maybe they would finally believe me
    When I say I've won
    And my family gets to see their
    That they can feel proud of
    They can feel proud of
    They can feel proud of
    They're proud of me Writer/s: JAMES ARTHUR
