I am who I am
I write songs
Not my wrongs
You can say goodbye
But don't consider me gone
'Cause I'll stay where I stand
You're like an hourglass
That needs more sand

How can I trust anyone else
When I can barely trust myself?
I write songs, baby
Not my wrongs, baby
I win, you lose
Same song, baby

I am who I am
You know I'll bend the truth
I'll break it, too
And I am who I am
You know I care for you
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go

I am who I am
I confess all the rest
Caused a wreck in my chest
Made a mess
Cupid crashed
Now he's back
But if you want me
You can only have half

How can I love anyone else
When I can barely love myself?
I write songs, baby
Not my wrongs, baby
I win, you lose
Same song, baby

I am who I am
You know I'll bend the truth
I'll break it, too
(You know)
And I am who I am
You know I care for you
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go

Oh yeah
Come on, let's go
Yeah, yeah, yeah
The Cab
Yeah
Eloquent

Bringin' the house down
Let's drive 'em crazy
Over the top
Rock the hands up, baby
Full of agression and attention lately
I'm rollin' with The Cab
That's money
Pay me
Lately, everybody's hard to hang
'Cause we go back and forth
Like a boomerang
I'm sayin' I don't know how well you'll take this
Your secrets won't leak
Like what happens in Vegas
Face it, you're the one that starts the fights
Screamin' loud and until your face
Turns red like brake lights
Balanced on a scale
It was a long race
But you're the first one to call
On the lonely nights
And baby, baby
This ain't fair
I'm eloquent
We're goin' nowhere
This love affair
Got plenty of flaws
But I'm never gonna ch-ch- change
Because

I am who I am
(Yeah, yeah)
You know I'll bend the truth
I'll break it, too
(Come on)
And I am who I am
You know I care for you
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go
(Go, go, go, go, go, go)
But not enough to let you go

    General Comment"...You can see by me but don't consider me gone"

    i think this part is supposed to be "you can say bye but don't consider me gone" just what it sounds like to me, and makes more sense like that :D

    that being said...this song is love.

    General CommentI'd like to make a few corrections here...

    "You can say goodbye" = You can say bye

    "You've hit, crashed" = Cupid crashed (That would explain "now he's back")

    Eloquent Rap: There are a few issues here:

    "Full of agression and the tension leans" = Full of aggression and attention lately

    "That's money, baby" = That's money, PAY ME

    "Lady, you're pretty hard to handle" = Lately everybody's hard to hang (handle doesn't rhyme with boomerang)

    "Screamin' loud and takin' face" = Screamin' loud until your face

    "Jump and ram the brake lights" = Turns red like brake lights

    "Battled to the skill" = Balanced on a scale

    "It was a long race" = On the wrong and rights

    "Remember ..." = I'm eloquent (where did remember come from?)

    "We're goin' nowhere" = And I ain't goin' nowhere

    "This ..." = This love affair

    "We got plenty of flows" = Got plenty of flaws

    "But I'm never gonna cheat or change" = But I'm never gonna Ch-Ch-Change

    **I hope these things can be corrected. Bye now.
