I Am The One Lyrics

DAN
Can you tell me what it is you’re afraid of?
Can you tell me why I’m afraid it’s me?
Can I touch you?
We’ve been fine for so long now
How could something go wrong that I can’t see?
‘Cause I’m holding on
And I won’t let go
I just thought you should know

I am the one who knows you
I am the one who cares
I am the one who’s always been there
I am the one who’s helped you
And if you think that I just don’t give a damn
You just know who I am

Could you leave me?

GABE
Hey Dad, it’s me

DAN
Could you let me go under?

GABE
Why can’t you see?

DAN
Would you watch as I drown

BOTH
And wonder why

DAN
Are you bleeding?

GABE
Are you waiting, are you wishing, are you wanting all that she can’t give?

DAN
Are you bruised, are you broken?

GABE
Are you hurting, are you healing, are you hoping for a life to live?

DAN
Does it help you to know

BOTH
Well so am I

DAN
Tell me what to do

GABE
Look at me

DAN
Tell me who to be

GABE
Look at me!

DAN
So I can see what you see

GABE (overlapping)
And you’ll see

DAN
I am the one who holds you

GABE
I am

DAN
I am the one who’ll stay

GABE
I am

DAN
I am the one who won’t walk away

GABE (overlapping)
I won’t walk away

DAN
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I am the one who’ll heal you

GABE
I am

DAN
And now you tell me that I won’t give a damn

GABE
You don’t give a damn

DAN
I know you know

BOTH
Who I am
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

DAN
That’s who

BOTH
I am
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

DAN
That’s who

BOTH
I am
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

DAN
That’s who I am
‘Cause I’m holding on

DIANA
You say you hurt like me

GABE
And I won’t let go

DIANA
You say that you know

DAN AND GABE
Yeah I thought you should know

ALL
Oh!

DIANA
You don’t know

DAN AND GABE
I am the one who knows you

DIANA
I know you don’t know
You say that you’re hurting
I know it ain’t so
You don’t know
Why don’t you just go?
It just lays me low

DAN AND GABE (overlapping)
I am the one who cares
I am the one who’s always been there
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I am the one who needs you
And if you think that I just don’t give a damn

DIANA
When I say

DAN (overlapping)
You just don’t know who I am

DIANA
You don’t know

DAN
Who I am

DIANA
You don’t know

DAN
Who I am

GABE
You just don’t know who I am
