"Who the Hell Am I?" as written by Daniel B. Estrin, Douglas Sean Robb and Chris Light Hesse....
No more lying to myself
Pretending to be someone else
And now I'm hiding how I feel behind a smile
Living in constant self denial

There's something I need to say

No more running from my fights
And no more giving up when I know I'm right
Sick of trying to fit in
And wondering what I could have been

There's something I need to say
It's growing everyday
Things are going to change

[Chorus]
I won't apologize
For who I come to be
'Cause who the hell am I
If I cant be me
I've wasted too much time
On insecurities
'Cause who the hell am I
If I can't be me

No more need to justify
Everything I do, everything I like
and no more blood from biting my tongue
Too afraid to upset anyone

There's something I need to say

No more guilt for what I see
In the mirror staring back at me

There's something I need to say
It's growing everyday
Things are going to change

[Chorus]

And it feels like I am naked
Stripped for you to see
My scars and imperfections
But you never seemed to notice
'Cause you're too busy covering up your cuts and bruises
From who knows what
Just like me

So why apologize
For who I've come to be
'Cause who the hell am I
If I cant be me
I've wasted too much time
On insecurities
'Cause this is who I am
And that's fine with me.

    General CommentThis is truly a great song and really hits home with me and my situation. I felt my stomach turn when I was listening to these lyrics because of how much this affects me in my life. I feel like I'm not living my life because I never let my true self come through... The lyrics "no more hiding how I feel behind a smile" just is so meaningful because I'm sure many people live hiding themselves.

    The song is also really motivating to push me to be who I am, for instance "Things are going to change" just gets me going to really want to let people know who I am!! Because on a serious note who really am I, if I can't be me?

    General Commenttruly amazing.
    that is the definition of me. hiding under all the things everyone wants me to be,
    so much that i've lost myself somewhere under everything.
    but the time has come to shed the skin
    i'll never fit in...

    how many others have suffered this?
