"Who I was born to be" as written by and Audra Mae/fransson Butts....
When I was a child
I could see the wind in the trees
And I heard a song in the breeze
It was there, singing out my name

But I am not a girl
I have known the taste of defeat
And I have finally grown to believe
It will all came around again

[Chorus]
And though I may not
Know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions
Led me here, then
I am who, I was born to be

And so here am I
Open arms and ready to stand
I've got the world in my hands
And it feels like my turn to fly

[Chorus]

When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark

[Chorus]

I am who, I was born to be

    General CommentHow fantastic for Ms. Susan Boyle. I hadn't really been paying much attention to her enormous hype until I happened to come across a copy of her I Dreamed A Dream album. Amazing !Her music really speaks for itself. it does all the talking! I had the shivers.

    My favorite off the album is her interpretation of Wild Horses. I'll post lyrics as soon as I get my hands back on the liner notes. Her voice has this youthfulness, and richness that is just glorious. How nice it is to see a story like Susan's. She didn't set limitations for herself. and now she's realizing her dreams. Good for her!

    I really need an album jacket and to poste all these lyrics. Susan needs more comments on songmeanings! Anyway, she really is an inspiration. I think every human has the need to be loved, and acknowledged. Not that everyone needs to achieve rock star level status in order to attain this. You can be be recognized for being awesome among your own inner circle of peers! Susan Boyle deserves all her crazy success, and she serves as a fabulous, unconventional example that we should always keep our minds and hearts open!
    Susan, you rock.
