Not who I was

posted 17 April 2004

Once upon a time, I was a boy who thought I was a genius
Once upon a time, you told me to back that up.
You took my ideas and you kicked them around,
Sometimes they flew and sometimes they hit the ground
The important bit is that you took them at all
And I know that for that I should be truly thankful

I'm not who I was
Not a boy, nor a man
I'm not who I was
And I have you to thank
Don't know who I'll be
But thanks to all of you
Least I know who I am

Once upon a time, I was a boy who thought I knew what I was.
Once upon a time, you made me think twice about that.
All my silly assumptions you shot to the ground
Took the world that I knew and turned it right upside down
You took what they said and you proved they were wrong
I still sing the same tune but now I write my own song

Not who I was
I can't thank you enough
For not taking my shit
And for calling my bluff
Don't know who I'll be
But thanks to all of you
Least I know who I am

Once upon a time, I was a boy who was all alone
Once upon a time, I thought that was how it would always be.
Then you opened your heart and you opened my eyes
To a world full of friendships just waiting to fly
Your genius lies in knowing the simplest of things
Though I've now left the flock I still know who gave me wings

I'm not who I was
Won't be lonely again
You taught me to love
And how just to be friends
Don't know who I'll be
But thanks to all of you
Least I know who I am

Once upon a time, I was a boy at a dead end
Once upon a time, I couldn't see my way out again.
But you turned me around and showed me all the ways
Then you lifted me up and you showed me the maze
Anyone could point out that all ends were the same
But you took the time to get me out of the game

I'm not who I was
Not that boy, not a man
I'm not who I was
And I have you to thank
Don't know who I'll be
But thanks to all of you
Now I know who I am
