Here I Am (Machina-era demo)

 

Lyrics

they say that freedom is something you make
independence, some sort of change
happiness, a smile, and a fleeting look
who appears inside the soul i strew so with love?

here i am okay, okay
there i go alone, easy
here i am to stay, thank you
there i go alone

a cat purrs to prove that she's still a cat
a dog barks at you to prove he's all that
and you'll destroy everything clear in your path
to scream that you're human and want something back

here i am okay, okay
there i go alone, easy
here i am to stay, thank you
there i go alone

a child you were born, a child you'll return
counting your miles, scarred by what you've earned
penetrate the silence with a silence all your own
only you can know what's still left to burn

here i am okay, okay
there i go alone, easy
here i am to stay, thank you
when i was afraid
there i was okay, okay
there i go alone, easy
here i am to stay, thank you
when i was afraid
