I Am the One 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
Then you just don't 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
Will you watch as I drown and wonder why

GABE
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, well so am I

GABE
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
And you'll see

DAN
I am the one who holds you

GABE
I am

DAN
I am the one who stayed

GABE
I am

DAN
I am the one who won't walk away

GABE
I won't walk away

DAN
Yeah yeah yeah
I am the one who'll hear 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
But I know you know who I am

GABE
Who I am

DAN
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

GABE
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

DAN
That's who I am

GABE

DAN
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

GABE
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

DAN
That's who I am

GABE
Who I am

DAN
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

GABE
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
Oh

DIANA
Oh, you don't know

DAN and GABE
I am the one who knows you

DIANA
I know you don't know

DAN and GABE
I am the one who cares

DIANA
You say that you're hurting, I know it ain't so

DAN and GABE
I am the one who's always been there

DIANA
You don't know

DAN and GABE
Yeah yeah yeah
I am the one who needs you

DIANA
Why don't you just go?

DAN and GABE
And if you think that I just don't give a damn

DIANA
Cause it lays me low, when I say...

DAN
Then you just don't know who I am

DIANA
You don't know

DAN
Who I am

DAN
Who I am

GABE
You just don't know who I am
