Aly & AJ - I Am One Of Them Lyrics

I get in the car
Another tragic disaster
But I'm safe where I am
Yet another is captured
The traffic is stopped
People just stare
Another alert does the kid have a prayer?
Life is not fair

Its hard to look outside my door
With all the news reports and more
Yet I will do my part and stay on alert
For all the kids out there who are getting hurt
It could have happened to me
Can you make me believe
This could have a happy end
'Cause I am one of them

I try to grow up
But I am chased by my fears
It could happen to me
And I worry in tears
Reports of the girl
Makin' me scared
Led off to die and why was I spared?
Life is not fair!

It's hard to look outside my door
With all the news reports and more
yet I will do my part and stay on alert
For all the kids out there who are getting hurt
It could have happened to me
Can you make me believe
This could have a happy end
'cause I am one of them

I am one of them
Am one of them
I am one of them
Am one of them
I am one of them
Am one of them
I wish I could bring back all of them

Aly & AJ I Am One Of Them Comments
  1. Carolyn S

    Somehow this makes me think of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG)

  2. Lucía G

    This song makes me cry. It goes straight to the point.

  3. rosepuff321

    This song is one of the reasons why I love Aly & AJ, they write about a range of different topics.

  4. Ashley Kutcher

    The most underrated songwriters. I got the privilege of meeting them in 2006

  5. Lefty LPS

    Whos listening in 2018? 🙃🙄

  6. Cats Forever

    I remember listening to this when I was 11, and breaking down

  7. Summer J

    Oh dam ya

  8. pro proprince

    Try to find the f****** original dude

  9. CaroLouWho

    Thinking about Hannah Graham as I listen to this song. I wish I could bring her back, and all others like her.

  10. Kyla Turcott

    I think it means that they're people, so this (getting kidnapped) could have happened to them too.

  11. fairytalelife

    what is ths song supposed to mean wen they say one of them?

    Kathryn Braxton

    fairytalelife they wrote it about a girl that kidnapped a while back...this was on their first cd. I can't remember the girls name but the man kidnapped her as she walking from a car wash. It was one of the kidnapping stories that was all over world wide news. If you look up Aly and An explain I Am One Of Them they tell the story about them writing this song. ☺

    Kathryn Braxton

    fairytalelife just looked it up her name was Carlos Bruica. And when they say I Am One Of Them, it means they are someone who could have kidnapped as could happen to any of us. I have a son, and he does t leave my sight, never will unit he is 18. People are so mean these days, have no remorse and just don't care. This world is a messed up place. It needs a lot of peace and love...thats for sure!!

  12. iheartsjonas

    this song reminds me of all the women and children sold into human trafficking :(

  13. iheartsjonas


  14. iheartsjonas

    :( this makes me sad but i love this song

  15. summerlandmusic

    15 year old girl holds hands with her 1 year old son. People call her a slut, no one knows she was raped at 13. People call another Guy fat. No one knows he has a serious disease causing him to be overweight. People call an old man ugly. No one knew he had a serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war. People call a woman bald but they don't know she has cancer. Re-post this if you are against bullying and stereotyping. I bet 95% won't do it

  16. Marta Mei

    This gives me chills.
    <3 Aly & Aj
