I am the One... by SonicHearts I am the One... by SonicHearts
I am the one who loved you.
I am the one who stayed.
I am the one and you walked away.
I am the one who waited
And now you act like you just don't give a damn.
Like you never knew who I am.


I am the one who knows you... [I am...]


I am the one you fear.... [I am...]


I am the one...


...who's always been here. [who's always bee there...]


I am the one who'll heal you... [I am...]

I know you told her that I'm not worth a damn,
But I know you know who I am...


"No. "


I know you know who I am.


"Can't you just leave me alone?"


I know you know who I am.


"Why didn't you go with her?"


'Cause I'm holding on [Let me go...]


And I won't let go [Let me go!]


And I want you to know [Yeah, you donít know]


I am the one who held you
I am the one who cried
I am the one who watched while you died.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I am the tone who loved you
I tried pretending that I don't give a damn,


But you've always known who I am.







"I am the One[Reprise]" from Next to Normal
