"The Way I Am" as written by and Jennifer Lynn Knapp....
Blind these eyes who never tried
To lose temptation
I'm so scared, where's the hesitation?
You so easily proved that You could save a man
I am that man

[Chorus]
It's better off this way
To be deaf, dumb and lame
Than to be the way I am, I am
It's better off this way
Than be groping for the flame
Than to be the way I am, I am
Still this tongue for I am hung
By this wicked notion
Tame the beast, release
The noose I've woven
O, wasted tears dripping from my tongue
Well I'm hung, hung

[Chorus]

Crooked path you never asked
You just left me there
And I deal with the aftermath
And you don't even care
O, crooked feet you nimbly meet the place of my fears

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite tunes of all time. Its melancholy because the road we must walk is fraught with peril and tribulation. This is quite possibly the best song of all time. It means something to all the people out there who need to be free of their suffering. I royally recommend listening to this tune and praying for release.
