"May I Am?" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
Maybe I'm a pessimist
What if all the gray clouds in the sky
Would follow me home tonight?

Maybe I'm an atheist
What if there's no God waiting to meet me
At the end of the working week?

Maybe I'm just delicate
Maybe I am

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons, we're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
No, it's not the same, not the same to me

Maybe I'm an optimist
What if all the damage that was done
Was never done to me?

Maybe I'm a liar
What if all the truths that I have told
Are better left, better left unsaid?

Maybe I'm just delicate
And maybe I am

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons, we're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
Well no, it's not the same, not the same to me

What sticks to me
Sticks to you like glue
What sticks to me
Sticks to you like glue

Maybe I'm just delicate
And maybe I am

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons, we're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
No, it's not the same, not the same to me

So I'll pack up my bags and leave
Pack up my bags and leave

    General CommentOne of my most favouritest favourite tracks on the album. XrookieoftheyearX, i like your interpretation, but when I look at it from a bigger perspective, to me this song is about how hard it is to truly define who you are in this age of time.
    What you stand for, what you live for and what you truly believe in.
    There's so many religions, cultures, languages, different perspectives in this world, not to mention thoughts on what is really "right" or what is "wrong".
    Does God exists? or was it the apes?
    Does heaven exist or do we reincarnate?
    There are so many things you can believe in, but it's so very hard to when everything seems to contradict one another, and everyone tries to persaude you to see their point of view on all matters.
    The question mark title "Maybe I Am?" emphasises on how very easy it is for people to change their beliefs, attitudes and perceptions on a whim or just out of experience.
    The verses that begin with 'Maybe I'm a pessimist' and 'Maybe I'm an optimist', highlight that concept. I think the song also explores "meaning". As in what one thing means to a person may mean something completely different to another. I think it's also suggesting there's no such thing as a "one truth", there's always more that one interpretation and meaning to anything and ironically enough, songmeanings.net exemplifies that a lot.

    General CommentFirst Comment=]
    The song is about not wanting to fit in or get along with someone else. He can't get everyone to understand why he is failing someone he loves. It seems that they simply cannot get along, despite others expectations he is trying to give reasons.
    He doesn't fit into the same mould and doesn't want to be treated like everyone else.


    And I think it's 'greet' not 'meet'

    General CommentI think this song is about all the doubts you have when a relationship is failing. What's going wrong? Is it me, is it you? Can we fix this? etc...

    This was the first song on the album I really fell in love with. Reminds me a lot of their older material.

    And I agree, I think it's 'greet' not 'meet'

    My InterpretationFirstly the song is called 'Maybe I Am'
    I think the meaning to this song is the idea that I am what I am. It was written because someone said the the singer that his Lyrics were too complex for todays youth and should dumb them down. But I think it goes deep than that now.
    "Just not clever enough to persuade
    Everyone of the reasons
    We're failing each other" This could be the idea that the songs are not being understood by people or that he isnt pleasing the person who made the first complaint. Though I think the whole idea is to "I am what I am and im not going to change!"

    General CommentMy thoughts about the song are as follows:

    To me, this song is portraying a person who is confused about their relationship with there partner.
    The relationship is heading towards the end and they are unable to recognize their faults.
