{Verse1}
I spend my life
Trying to do things right
But all I do is fall to my face with my hands on my hips so many times
But then I learned

After being burnt
To get back up, push straight on, stop the tears,

People move on
Ooonnnn

{Chorus}
Well it's alright to be myself
Now I've Learned To Stand
Well it's OK to be just who I am
I've spent years really hating me

Longing to be friends (friends)
Now I hope that you can
Understand,

This Is Who I am

{Verse 2}
Now when life gets tough
I'm quick to hurry up
I run all day
I run through the night
I'll break down walls, I'll hit up high

I don't care if I'm fat,
Or if you think my clothes are bad
'Coz I can go to sleep at night I'm a good person and I'll get by, I!

{Chorus}
Well it's alright to be myself,
Now I've Learned To Stand
Well it's OK to be just who I am

I've spent years really hating me
Longing to be friends (friends)
Now I hope that you can understand,

This Is Who I am

{Bridge}
I need someone, someone someone, someone like me

You deserve, deserve, deserve to have me

Because your world keeps spinning
And you'll try doin' it.

{Chorus}
Well it's alright to be myself,
Now I've Learned To Stand

Well it's OK to be just who I am!
I've spent years really hating me
Longing to be friends (friends)

Now I hope that you can understand

This Is Who I am

Yyeaaahhhhhh, yeah yeah

This is who I am!

Oh, take a breather this is who I ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah Am.
