Susan Boyle – Who I Was Born To Be lyrics

When I was a child
I could see the wind in the trees
And I heard a song in the breeze
It was there, singing out my name

But I am not a girl
I have known the taste of defeat
And I have finally grown to believe
It will all came around again

Coro:
And though I may not
Know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions
Led me here, then
I am who I was born to be

And so here am I
Open arms and ready to stand
I've got the world in my hands
And it feels like my turn to fly

Repit coro

When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark

Repit coro
And ends: I am who I was born to be
I am who I was born to be.

    I think it's about hope and acceptance. As a child, you see all the possibilities, but then as you experience life you encounter obstacles. You may even question, "why me? ". You may blame others for your situation. You may be hanging on to anger or bitterness. The circumstances that got you to where you are today were meant to be. Even though you may not have it all figured out, you are who you are today because of those obstacles. Once you have accepted (no blame, no guilt), you can be free. Once you've accepted yourself for who you are, you can be free. Don't let anyone or anything hold you back - be that flower that blooms in the dark.
