"This Is Me" as written by Jully Black, Lashaun Owens and Karriem Mack....
I've always been the kinda girl that hid my face
So afraid to tell the world what I've got to say
But I have this dream right inside of me
I'm gonna let it show, it's time to let you know, to let you know

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am, there's no way to hold it in
No more hidin' who I wanna be, this is me, yeah

Do you know what it's like to feel so in the dark?
To dream about a life when you're the shining star
Even though it seems like it's too far away
I have to believe in myself, it's the only way

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am, there's no way to hold it in
No more hidin' who I wanna be, this is me

You're the voice I hear inside my head, the reason that I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece, I need the song inside of me
I need to find you, I gotta find you

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am, there's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I wanna be

This is me
You're the missing piece, I need the song inside of me
This is me, yeah
You're the voice I hear inside my head, the reason that I'm singing
Now I found who I am, there's no way to hold it in
No more hidin' who I wanna be, this is me

    General CommentThis movie was actually really good. and the music actually means something. Not like in hsm and hsm2. Where they were singing about being fabulous. So i love this.

    General CommentI'm sure when camp rock comes out, this song will get more comments. I remember hearing it on somedia a while ago before Camp Rock was advertised on Disney. It was simply her playing it on a piano.

    I wish it wasn't a duet. I like it better when she sings is alone- I feel like it fits better as her just singing it on her own.

    The meaning is pretty obvious

    General CommentYep, Friday and beyond, there'll be hordes of comments.

    I'd really like to hear an acoustic version or that version with her on the piano. I love Demi's voice so much! Joe's part is eh. Take it or leave it, the song's still amazing.

    The line that pretty much sums the song up is "No more hiding who I wanna be This is me." If you know that lyric, you know the meaning of the song.

    General CommentThere is actually a acoustic version of her, singing by herself somewhere on the web. So you have to google it to find it.

    Mostly this song is about being yourself and for which is what the movie is about also.

    General CommentI think the meaning's pretty self explanatory.. She's been hiding herself in somewhat of a shadow and she's finally breaking free into the crowd, showing who she really is.

    I love the duet and the acoustic version of just her, they're both awesome.
