This is who I am ...

I heard this song the other day on the radio and loved the words ... of course they didn't name the artist and I had no idea who the singer was, so have been channel surfing constantly since to hear it again.  Today whilst I was driving home, they played it again, so I wrote down some of the words and did a search on the internet and found out it's Vanessa Amorosi's latest single called This Is Who I Am ... check it out:

And here are the words ... they really resonate with me and my life:

I spend my life
Trying to do things right
but all I do is fall to my face with my hands and my hips so many times
but then I learned
after being burnt
to get back up, push straight on, stop the tears,

people move on

Well it's alright to be myself,
Now I've Learned To Stand
Well its OK to be just who I am
I've spent years really hating me
longing to be friends
Now I hope that you can understand,
This Is Who I Am

Now when life gets tough
I'm quick to hurry up
I run all day
I run through the night
I'll break down walls, I'll hit up high

I don't care if I'm fat,
Or if you think my clothes are bad
Yet i can go to sleep at night I'm a good person and I'll get by, I!!

I need someone, someone someone, someone like me
You deserve, deserve, deserve to have me
Because your world keeps spinning
And don't try to turn it

Oh, take a breather this is who I ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah Am.

Mmmmmm so true for so many - amasing how our deep internal sadness can be put in a song and simply mean so much to so many and become so popular. The world is a changing and just maybe for the better xxx
