Tracklist

I Am What I Am

length: 5:55
composer: Jerry Herman
lyricist: Jerry Herman

I am what I am
I don't want praise I don't want pity
I bang my own drum
Some think it's noise I think it's pretty
And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle
Why not try to see things from a different angle
Your life is a shame
Do you can shout out I am what I am
Do you can shout out I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out
I am what I am
I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out
I am what I am

I am I am good
I am I am strong
I am I am somebody
I am I do belong
I am I do belong

I am I am useful
I am I am true
I am I am worthy
I am as good as you
I am as good as you

I am I am good
I am I am strong
I am I am somebody
I am I do belong

Chain of Whispers

length: 5:23

Strive

length: 4:52
writer: Linwood M. Simon, Julius Joseph Davis
You got your hopes up for a reason
Now's the time to decide
Don't you wait another season
Get your sights up right before your changes pass you by
Time goes on, the world keeps turning
Make your move, aim for the top
You make a difference, keep learning
Put your best foot forward, you can make this kind of rock
Refrain:
You've got to strive, go for what you know
Strive, don't give up on your dreams
you've got to strive
And let the world know you're really alive
You've got to strive, go for what you know
Strive, don't give up on your dreams
You've got to strive
Let the world know you're really alive

You know the score, you know what's happening
And don't feel sorry for yourself
Roll up your sleeves, let's get to crackin'
Shut your doubts up in the closet, leave your pity on the shelf
Keep your nose onto the grindstone
Faith in God will pull you through
Load up your gun, get off your hindbone
Fire at the target, hit the mark, oh why don't you?
Refrain.

I’ve Been Watching You

length: 4:29
When the rose.
Slaps your face
Says your pain is a state of grace (I think that's right)
Mirror cracks
Image bleeds
He'll touch your desires
But not your needs

I stand at an open window
I see everything there is to see

[Chorus]
I've been watching you
Isn't it true the fool keeps taking you down down
Taking you
I've been watching you
Isn't it true the world keeps taking you down down
Taking you

Party ends
On the floor
Hear a voice
Behind the door
In the dark
You play his games
Forget yourself
Forget your name

I stand at an open window
I see everything there is to see

[Chorus]

So there you are all dressed in black
Walk away and don't look back
But if you must then cast a stone
The light is on but there's nothing and no one home (I think)

[Chorus: x2]

More Than Enough

length: 3:59
My God is more than enough
He can supply all my needs
He is my El Shaddai
He always looks out for me

[Chorus]
Jehovah Jirah he is my God [Repeat: x2]

All of the earth is his
And the fullness there of
He's everything that I need
You can be sure of

[Chorus]

So why should I worry bout the highs and the lows
The ups and the downs
And by my faith I know
My God is more than enough
He can supply all my needs
He is my El Shaddai
He always looks out for me

[Chorus]
