everything that i am lyrics – phil collins

is this my past here before me
is this my story unfolding?
it`s all here to discover
everything that i am
can this be what i`ve been seeking?
all my life i`ve been waiting for this
and now these memories
will they make me see more?

ooh i want to know where i belong
i want to know where i came from
i want to know the reason why i`m here
the way i am
feeling the things i feel
i want to know the reason why
it will be hard but i must try
i got to understand just who i am
and why i’m here
feeling my things i feel

is this my family?
can it really be them that i see?
my father and mother
and in their arms can it really be me
all these emotions
i can barely control
cause the family i had
is not the family i know?

ooh and i got to know where i belong
i got to know where i came from
i got to know the reasons why i`m here
the way i am
feeling the things i feel

these spirits calling me
familiar voices haunting
disappearing taunting me
this is the choice i must make

cause i know where i belong
i know where i, i came from
i know the reason why
i must decide
and leave here
the man i am inside

the future is clear for me to see
to be the man i`m meant to be
like my father with my head up high
standing tall
and proud of all
that i am

i`m a man!
