Lyrics

White lies and desperation
Hard times and conversation
No one should ever love me like you do
Sometimes my bad decisions
Define my false suspicions
No one should ever love me like you do

While I’m on this road you take my hand
Somehow you really love who I really am
I push you away, still you won’t let go
You grow your roses on my barren soul

Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I

Last night, confidence was shaken
My wounds and my past was saying
No one should ever love me like you do

The way I put you through it, what you had to see
I’m a train wreck, I’m a mess, you see the best
and the worst in me
Still I can’t imagine that I’ve learned your trust
I don’t understand where your love comes from

 

 

About This Song

“Probably the biggest and most constant struggle I have in my life is being able to accept love. At some place in my core, it’s hard for me to believe that I’m ever worthy of it, or somehow deserve it. ‘Who Am I’ is a song about the fight to accept, embrace and trust that the greatest love requires nothing in return.” -Bear Rinehart (Lead singer of NEEDTOBREATHE)

While I’m on this road you take my hand
Somehow you really love who I really am
I push you away, still you won’t let go
You grow your roses on my barren soul

The soaring “Who Am I” chorus echoes with an emotionally charged vocal performance that finds NEEDTOBREATHE reinvesting themselves in a childlike wonder that permeates all the new songs on the highly anticipated new album.

NEEDTOBREATHE examines life, family and friends through a youthful prism on their new album, Out of Body. Bear Rinehart [lead vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt (bass, vocals) and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals) take stock of not only two decades as a band, but also first-time fatherhood and the future over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy. After spending a week at a beach house in Charleston to gather thoughts and ideas, the trio headed to Nashville, to record alongside producers Cason Cooley and Jeremy Lutito. As they cultivated a team atmosphere, the songs organically came to life.
