  • Look at me I am the sun
    I'll blind your eyes, the only one.
    Look at me when night sings blues,
    I'm the only one, yes I'm your muse.

    Look at me, make no mistake,
    Fashioned with earth, molded with clay.
    I'll tell you how I face the day,
    Live life, raise hell, left nothing undone.

    Who I am, who am I to you?
    You know dammit, I speak the truth to you.
    Who I am, who am I to you?
    Why can't I be who I am?

    Look at me, I'm not like you.
    I'm number one, not number two.
    Look at me a pride and joy,
    I came to win, I came to destroy.
    Look at me, look in my eyes Heart of a lion,
    I'll fight till I die!
    Life's too short to expect less
    Even when I fall, I get up swinging

    Who I am, who am I to you?
    You know, dammit, I speak the truth to you
    Who I am, who am I to you?
    Why can't I be who I am?

    Who I am, who am I to me?
    You know dammit, I speak the truth, you see
    Who I am, who am I to me?
    I just wanna be who I am
    Just wanna be who I am
    Just wanna be who I am Writer/s: ALEKSANDR BODNAR, JOHN CURRY, SCOTT STAPP
