Next To Normal – I Am The One lyrics

Dan:
Can you tell me
What it is you're afraid of?
And can you tell me
Why I'm afraid it's me?

Can I touch you?
We've been fine for so long now,
How can something go wrong
That I can't see?

'Cause I'm holding on,
And I won't let go.
I just though you should know...

I am the one who knows you,
I am the one who cares,
I am the one who's always been there.
I am the one who's helped you,
And if you think that
I just don't give a damn,
Then you just don't know who I am.

Dan:
Could you leave me?

Gabe:
Hey dad, it's me.

Dan:
Could you let me go under?

Gabe:
Why can't you see?

Dan:
Will you watch as I drown,

Both:
And wonder why?

Dan:
Are you bleeding?

Gabe:
Are you waiting, are you wishing
Are you wanting all that she can't give?

Dan:
Are you bruised? Are you broken?

Gabe:
Are you hurting, are you healing
Are you hoping for a life to live?

Dan:
Does it help you to know

Both:
Well, so am I.

Dan:
Tell me what to do

Gabe:
Look at me.

Dan:
Tell me who to be

Gabe:
Look at me.

Dan:
So I can see

Both:
What you see.

Dan:
I am the one who'll hold you,

Gabe:
I am...

Dan:
I am the one who'll stay,

Gabe:
I am...

Dan:
I am the one

Both:
I won't walk away.

Dan:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I am the one who'll heal you

Gabe:
I am...

Dan:
And now you tell me that
I won't give a damn

Gabe
You don't give a damn.

Dan:
But I know you know

Both:
Who I am.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dan:
That's who

Both:
I am.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dan:
That's who

Both:
I am.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dan:
That's who I am.
'Cause I'm holding on...

Diana:
You say you hurt like me...

Gabe:
And I won't let go...

Diana:
You say that you know...

Dan and Gabe:
Yeah I thought you should know.

Diana:
Oh... You don't know

Dan and Gabe:
I am the one who knows you,

Diana:
I know you don't know.

Dan and Gabe:
I am the one who cares,

Diana
You say that you're hurting,

Dan and Gabe:
I am the one

Diana:
I know it ain't so.

Dan and Gabe:
Who's always been there.

Diana:
You don't know.

Dan and Gabe:
Yeah yeah yeah
I am the one who needs you,

Diana:
Why don't you just go?

Dan and Gabe:
And if you think that

Diana:
'Cause it lays me low

Dan and Gabe:
I just don't give a damn

Diana:
When you say

Dan:
Then you just don't know
Who I am...

Diana:
You don't know...

Dan:
Who I am...

Diana:
You don't know...

Dan:
Who I am...

Gabe:
You just don't know who I am.
