who i am lyrics – faith hill

might scare me to death
or chill my bones
break my heart
or warm my soul
but since i’m here and before i go
i’m gonna find out who i am

late one cold thanksgiving night
they welcomed me, another 60’s child
to a family that’s holding tight
that’s part of who i am, yeah

i got a mama who prays for me
she fights the devil down on her knees
i can’t see all that mama sees
but it’s part of who i am

she gave me truth and she watched me grow
i told her lines and i test the rope
then i tried a little bit of everything i know
just to find out who i am

who i am
does it matter anyway
who i am
what i’ve seen along the way
who i am
changes a little everyday
with a lot of truth
and an open heart
i just want half a chance
as long as i’m here and before i go
just to find out who i am

music is my soul’s delight
comes to me both day and night
it gives me wings and it gives me flight
and it’s part of who i am

i hold onto a simple faith
about the choices and the path i take
that through the good and the bad mistakes
i’m gonna find out, yeah

who i am
does it matter anyway
who i am
what i’ve lost along the way
who i am
it changes a little everyday
with a lot of truth
and an open heart
i just want half a chance
as long as i’m here and before i go
just to find out

did it ever really matter
in that big forever plan
who i am and what i’m here for i don’t know
is it wrong to want an answer
try to understand

who i am
does it matter anyway
who i am
what i’ve learned along the way
who i am
it changes a little everyday
with a lot of truth
and an open heart
i just want half a chance
as long as i’m here and before i go
just to find out
who i am

who i am.
