  • All of my life I have watched you
    Climbing mountains, chasing dreams
    All of my life, you gave me everything
    But you don't have to give the world to me

    Just say you love me as I am,
    Say you want me as I am,
    Say I'm someone in your eyes,
    That's all I want it to be
    Oh, just let me go, I know one day if I'm allowed,
    If I'm allowed, one day I'll make you proud

    All of your life, you've taken chances
    Broke the rules time after time
    All of your life, you've gone your own way,
    Give me this chance, and I'll go mine

    Why can't you say, you love me as I am,
    Say you, want me as I am,
    Say I'm someone in your eyes,
    That's all I want it to be
    Oh, just let me go, I know one day if I'm allowed,
    If I'm allowed, one day I'll make you proud

    Oh, one day I'll make you proud
    Mmm

    And trying to please you now, it's all I seem to do
    I'm holding my dreams down, it's breaking me in two
    I've got to be me now 'cause there's already one of you
    I'm on my knees so help me please

    Please don't shoot me down
    Though you can't see it now
    Someday I'll make you proud Writer/s: ANDREW GERARD HILL, STEVE MAC, WAYNE ANTHONY HECTOR
