Charlie Winston - Here I Am

Текст песни: Here I Am

I've never been an academic, I never did well at school
Never made the grade like we're all told we're supposed to do
I was slow and to cope I would joke and be a teachers fool
Just to hide it

He said, I'll never come to much, I'll never be no good
I didn't fit in the vision of the curriculum like I should
Who says a test is the best way to get us understood?
I don't think so. Don't think so, no

Here I am. Tell me, what I gotta lose?
Tell me, what I gotta prove?
Here I am. Ain't no win without a fail
So let me fail forward, hey

Here I am

I said I was slow but now I know another point of view
Turns out, I let every little thing sink in until I know it through and through
Ain't it funny to kill a mockingbird are words that we learn at school
On compassion?

Well, here I am. Tell me, what I gotta lose?
Tell me, what I gotta prove?
Here I am. Ain't no win without a fail
So let me fail forward, hey

Here I am

Each day, I make a bet
That the voices in my head
Won't always understand
Or take me as I am

I didn't read a lot of books as a kid until my table's turned
At 21 I began to eat up the whole shelf filling up myself in the words
Of other misfits looking for a home in a lonely world

Now, here I am. Tell me, what I gotta lose?
Tell me, what I gotta prove?
Here I am. Ain't no win without a fail
So let me fail forward, hey

So let me fail
So let me fail forward
Here I am
So let me fail
So let me fail forward, hey
