Lyrics:

Am I asking all these questions for nothing?
I’m wondering if anyone’s there, yeah
And I really need to make a confession
I hate to say that I’m a little bit scared, yeah

But I’ve been on this train too long
People getting off and on
Praying that I don’t forget where I belong
And every time I ask myself

Am I turning into someone else?
I’m praying that I don’t forget just who I am
I really wanna understand
I just wanna understand

I’m callin’ all my friends after midnight, yeah
To remind ’em that I’ll always be there for them
It gets lonely when there’s no one to talk to
But it’s good to know that somebody cares

‘Cause I’ve been on this train too long
People gettin’ off and on
I’m prayin’ that I don’t forget where I belong
And every time I ask myself

Am I turnin’ into someone else?
I’m prayin’ that I don’t forget just who I am
I really wanna understand
I just wanna understand, yeah, oh yeah

‘Cause we all get lost sometimes (yeah, yeah, no)
We all get lost sometimes
We don’t leave your heart behind (no, yeah)
‘Cause we all get lost sometimes

I really wanna understand
I just gotta understand, yeah

Now I just need to, I need to understand
I really wanna understand, oh, who I am

When you wake up, your whole world’s flipped
It’s just different, and you gotta, you know, you gotta
You gotta go with it and
That’s just simply growing up
And not see it in a negative way
You have to see it as it has been giving to you
I mean, as much as time it’s gonna be crazy
You’re gonna feel like that’s where we’re supposed to be
You’re not gonna feel out of place anymore
You’re gonna feel that’s where you’re meant to be
You don’t have to pretend that it’s easy all the time
You just let it go and
And grow with it, and you can’t hold on
To the old you, or the old this or the old that
Because, you know, you change
And it’s not changing in a bad way
It’s just changing because that’s what happens in life
You grow up, everyone moves on
You’re just learning
You stay true to yourself
Changing isn’t a bad thing, it never was
But at the end of the day, you know, you’re the same person
And, and where your heart is, that doesn’t change

And every time I ask myself
Am I turning into someone else?
And I just pray to God that I’m still who I am
I really wanna understand
I just gotta understand, yeah

Now I just need to, I need to understand
I really wanna understand, oh, who I am
