who am i lyrics – will young

sometimes you know you push me so hard
i don’t know how i feel
you almost make me doubt i feel at all

it’s not as though i always listen
but there’s just so much i don’t hear
maybe i’ll never be what you want
i know that all you’re asking for
is a little place in my heart
but i don’t find it easy to give

maybe i get a little selfish sometimes
why shouldn’t i?
i used to say i love you
but would it make a difference this time?

and who am i to tell you that i would never let you down
that no-one else could love you half as much as i do now
and who am i to tell you i’ll always catch you when you fall
well i, i wouldn’t be myself at all
i wouldn’t be myself at all, at all.

i always find a reason why i didn’t put you first
it’s not that complicated i know
i really hate it when you shake your head like this ain’t gonna work
maybe you’ll never reap what you sow


i didn’t want to do what everybody does
and hide the truth to find we never knew a thing about love
cos this is real life, real love
and knowing what it comes down too
it just might be enough

[chorus x2]
