this is who we are lyrics – as i lay dying

now this is who we are
i am no one’s hero
for we are not the giant men
that some may think
you are faithful when we are not
so i’d like to tell this story
the way it is meant to be
without the burden that’s in our hearts
none of us would have ever found you
for you are faithful when we are not
you began a work
that only you can complete

now this is who we are
i’ll never know the answers
and i’ll always wonder why

…why we’re given grace we’ll never deserve
and a second chance that we will never earn
for there is nothing i can do to save myself

now this is who we are
i’ll never know the answers
and i’ll always wonder why
but you have let me start again
i’d rather be called weak
than die thinking i was strong
