I'm Not Who I Was
by Brandon Heath



I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I’m not who I was
I used to be mad at you
A little on the hurt side too
But I’m not who I was
I found my way around
To forgiving you some time ago
But I never got to tell you so

I found us in a photograph
I saw me and I had to laugh
You know, I’m not who I was
You were there, you were right above me
And I wonder if you ever loved me
Just for who I was
When the pain came back again
Like a bitter friend it was all that I could do
To keep myself from blaming you

I reckon it’s a funny thing
I figured out I could sing
Now I’m not who I was
I write about love and such
Maybe ‘cause I want it so much
I’m not who I was
I was thinking maybe I
Should let you know that I am not the same
But I never did forget your name. Hello

Well the thing I find most amazing
In amazing grace is the chance to give it out
Maybe that’s what love is all about
I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I’m not who I was...
