who i am hates who i’ve been lyrics – relient k

i watched the proverbial sunrise
coming up over the pacific and
you might think i’m losing my mind,
but i will shy away from the specifics…

’cause i don’t want you to know where i am
’cause then you’ll see my heart
in the saddest state it’s ever been.

this is no place to try and live my life.

[pre-chorus]
stop right there. that’s exactly where i lost it.
see that line. well i never should have crossed it.
stop right there. well i never should have said
that it’s the very moment that
i wish that i could take back.

[chorus]
i’m sorry for the person i became.
i’m sorry that it took so long for me to change.
i’m ready to be sure i never become that way again
’cause who i am hates who i’ve been.
who i am hates who i’ve been.

i talk to absolutely no one.
couldn’t keep to myself enough.
and the things bottled inside have finally begun
to create so much pressure that i’ll soon blow up.

i heard the reverberating footsteps
synching up to the beating of my heart,
and i was positive that unless i got myself together,
i would watch me fall apart.

and i can’t let that happen again
’cause then you’ll see my heart
in the saddest state it’s ever been.

this is no place to try and live my life.

[pre-chorus x2]
[chorus]

who i am hates who i’ve been
and who i am will take the second chance you gave me.
who i am hates who i’ve been
’cause who i’ve been only ever made me…

so sorry for the person i became.
so sorry that it took so long for me to change.
i’m ready to be sure i never become that way again
’cause who i am hates who i’ve been.
who i am hates who i’ve been.
