James Arthur – Finally lyrics

This is all I ever wanted, all I ever thought I'd be
It's the only place I truly feel as though I can be me
But the way I arrived, it was overnight
I've been on my worst behaviour
I've been on my worst behaviour

If only I had been like this
Now I can hold my heart in a fist
And all the voices leave
I can finally put it on my sleeve
Oh, if only they had really seen me
Maybe they would finally believe me when I say I've won
And my father gets to see a son that he can feel proud of
He can feel proud of,
He's proud of me

This is all I ever wanted, all I ever thought I'd be
But the way that I behaved could have seemed quite the contrary
I've felt all the knives, they're out of sight
I've been on my worst behaviour
I've been on my worst behaviour

If only I had been like this
Now I can hold my heart in a fist
And all the voices leave
I can finally put it on my sleeve
Oh, if only they had really seen me
Maybe they would finally believe me when I say I've won
And my mother gets to see a son that she can feel proud of
She can feel proud of,
She's proud of me

She's proud of me
They're proud of me
They're proud of me
They're proud of me
She's proud of me
She's proud of, she's proud of
They're proud of, they're proud of
They're proud of me
They're proud of me
They're proud of me
She's proud of, they're proud of, oh woah

If only I had been like this
Now I can hold my heart in a fist
And all the voices leave
I can finally put it on my sleeve
Oh, if only they had really seen me
Then maybe they would finally believe me when I say I've won
And my family get to see why, that they can feel proud of
They can feel proud of,
They can feel proud of
They're proud of me
