I Am - BPM 150


I’m a foreign word you don’t feel like learning I’m a thought that escapes you without forming I’m a stranger you pass in the street, not turning Someone nameless, homeless, in need of warming

I’m a caption you cut from a silent movie A forgotten track that you don’t mind skipping

I am I am

I’m a beggar staring down unmoving In a memory you’ve got no room for keeping I’m a cry for help but you don’t hear me calling I’m a snowflake you never notice falling

I am I am

I’m a quiet child you go on ignoring Once a year receiving your thoughtless presents On your map I’m a place not worth exploring I’m a dream locked up in your sleeping presence

I am I am

I’m a magic spell that you won’t be learning I’m a saving prayer you won’t be hearing I’m an angel who’ll pass over you, not turning Someone glowing, beautiful and unfearing

I am I am
