"Who Am I" as written by and Paul Maurice Kelly....
Another starry night is above us
For the last ten thousand years it's been the same
In a moment's notice
Not a stone unturned that someone didn't claim
Who am I to be here, who am I to know
All the streets are sinking
Cause the world goes half the speed of what it takes
And the wires lead somewhere
Sending signals to our homes in outer space
Who am I to know this, who am I to dream
From the warmth of being fine
To defending battle lines
In a car on the freeway
Broken down from some new form of gasoline
In the door she's waiting
Living up to every diamond in that ring
Who am I to love you, who am I to care
Another starry night is above us
For the last ten thousand years it's been the same
In a moment's notice
Not a stone unturned that someone didn't claim
Who am I to be here, who am I to know
Who am I to love you, who am I to see

    General CommentTo me this song explains just how big this world is and just how small all of us are.

    General Commentwiggins is right.. This song is very beautiful. I interpret it as you know.. he's asking "who am I" meaning like.. why am i worthy of this? why does it matter what I do to you? I kinda feel that right now about some things... complicated and depressing at the same time. Makes me sad.

    General CommentI agree. I think Sean is questioning his worthiness of the greatness of love in all its magnificence.
