I Know Who I Am

This song is by Leona Lewis and appears on the movie soundtrack For Colored Girls (2010).

They say you never see it coming
All the tiny little breaks
But somewhere out beyond all reason
You keep on giving what it takes

I never thought of running
I was busy carrying the load
Had the strength enough to take it
But not enough to let it go
It's a long time coming down a broken road

And finally I can feel without fearing
Cry without the pain
Stand up and love me
Without any shame
It might have been a rough way to learn it
And a hard place to land
But the one thing I'm sure of now
Is I know who I am

Now if somebody would have told me
There was a better place to be
In my quiet desperation
It was too hard to believe

I guess you gotta go the distance
To know just when enough's, enough
Won't let nobody take it from me
'Cause I know what I'm made of

And there's nothing I can't rise above

And finally I can feel without fearing
Cry without the pain
Stand up and love me
Without any shame

It might have been a rough way to learn it
And a hard place to land
But the one thing I'm sure of now
Is I know who I am

(I am) A woman who's worthy
(I am) A woman's deserving
Whatever it is I can take it
Whatever it takes I'm gonna make it yeah

And finally I can feel without fearing
Cry without the pain
Stand up and love me
Without any shame

It might have been a rough way to learn it
And a hard place to land
But the one thing I'm sure of now
Oh, and I absolutely have no doubt
Yeah, I know who I am

Yeah, I know who I am
I Know
