I Am


Your love has been kind over the years, and it
always let's me know where I stand, cuz your heart
is pure when you stretch out your hand, and because
of you: I Am,

And things could have been so differently, if only
we had rejected each other, and not give a damn,
but things didn't turn out that way, and because
of you: I Am,

I am, because I have been set free, I am, because
of your love for me, I am, because of all that we
see, I am, because I am free to 'BE',

And it is wonderful to be this way, so happy and
so carefree, and I thank my lucky stars until
this very day, that I live in this reality,

I am, because I have been set free, I am, because
of your love for me, I am, because of all that
we see, I am, because I am free to 'BE',

I am, because I have been set free, I am, because
of your love for me, I am, because of all that we
see, I am, because I am free to 'BE',

I am,
