"This Is Who I Am" as written by Michael Colton Dixon and Dave Richard Bassett....
I spend my life, trying to do things right
but all I do is fall to my face with my hands on my head so many times
but then I learnt, after being burnt
to get back up and push straight on
stop the tears people move on, on

Well it’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am

Now when life gets tough
I’m quick to hurry up
I run all day, I run through the night
I break down walls, I hit up high
I don’t care if I’m fat, or if you think my clothes are bad
‘cos I can go to sleep at night, I’m a good person and I’ll get by

Well It’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am

Are you someone, are you someone, are you someone, someone like me
you deserve, you deserve, you deserve to be free
cause the world will keep spinning, and you’ll be trapped in it

Well it’s alright to be myself
now I’ve learnt to stand
well it’s ok to be just who I am
I’ve spent years really hating me
longing to be friends, now I hope that you can understand
This is who I am

    Song MeaningYou have the lyrics wrong. but your mistakes are funny... its not "i spent years really hating men" its "hating ME" Great song though, great lyrics, original/quality production and a little bit quirky overall.

    The meaning is the most obvious thing of all.. being yourself, not caring about what other people think. Something thats not always easy to do. Often people say they dont care when they actually do, the irony is that feeling the need to tell everyone that you dont care what they think is often (not always) because you hope they will judge you less once they know you no longer care, suggesting that their judgement does have some affect.

    I want to see her do a face plant on the ground with her hands on her hips. She should have done that in the video lol
