I know who I am.
5'11 wishing I was 6 feet
Wanna be swole, but kinda skinny
Young black man from the streets of the Land where everybody that say fam ain't really your fam.
I know EXACTLY who I am. . .
Son of a working single mother
Don't have a single brother
Or sister, but a long line of cousins
That I'll see every now and again...
Moral of the story is: it's just me.
I'm all that I see, I'm all that I hear
And I know this may sound weird but I am one of my biggest fears.
Alone doesn't necessarily mean lonely, but the more time you spend alone you wonder who would want me
And then I met you
I look in your eyes and...
I forget what I like.
I forget what I want to say, I forget if it's night or day, I'm just like ...
Wow... Look at her.
I hold myself speechless because
I fear that my thoughts on your ears would make you wish I'd speak less
It's like your eyes are the stars at night,
but they're also a camera, and I get stage fright.
At the end of the night I realize.
This is not love. This is not like.
This is a fight.
A fight between me and you.
If this was a fight of who cares less than whom
I'll always lose.
If this was a fight about who has less to prove
If this was a fight about who does the best in school
I'd still lose
I don't know what it's about but I know it's a fight between me and you
I don't wanna lose
Because me losing the fight means losing you
If I can't break through and get you to see what's true
All the things I want to do
All the things I want us to be
I know you'll leave
And anything that had to do with we
Will be just me... Just me
You want me to describe how I feel
"So you know it's real"
If you were lost at sea
I'd swim until our eyes meet
Without a boat, without a life jacket to stay afloat
Lord knows I'm a terrible swimmer,
But I'd swim until my limbs grew tired
Out in the great blue sea
In hopes that you could see
What you mean to me.
See this is a fight I don't want to lose
(Though I am prepared)
I'm ready to go until the last round
Until the bell sounds
Until the clock reads all 0's
I'm giving it all I got
Taking my best shots
This isn't about a win, tie or lose
This is me vs you
To see the things we could possibly do...
