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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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
