Leona Lewis - I Am Lyrics




I thought the moment I was leaving
Barely breathing
Fall to pieces, couldn't face this
Why would I be leaving?
I was believing
It's you and me against the world

Not saying I was afraid of you
Won't put the blame on you
But I won't change for you
Just when you thought you dropped me
I gotta drop the news, I'm still existing
I'm still here

I am with or without you
I am breathing without you
I am somebody without you
I am, I am
I am free without you
I am stronger without you
Thought I would never rise again
But I am, I am

First steps that I was making
On this new planet
Never done, found all I wanted
The world was so forgiving
Open-hearted
Warm and loving, amazing

I never once regretted it
And I'll break my bread
I'm revealed again
All of the mistakes that I made
Finally led the way
To a better place

I am with or without you
I am breathing without you
I am somebody without you
I am, I am
I am free without you
I am stronger without you
Thought I would never rise again
But I am, I am

First my remedy, now my poison
Won't get down to love until I'm afraid to live
Oh yeah

I am with or without you
I am stronger without you
Thought I would never rise again
But I am, I am

Ooh yeah
I am me
Ohhhh

  24. siau1819

    Leona is so awesome. I am crazy about this particular song of this era. But check out her recent performances of Bridge Over Troubled Water, her Christmas Medley with Dinah Jane or her recent release of Headlights! I mean it!

  25. Chris Z

    Vocally stunning ❤

  26. JABZ TV

    I am a big fan of her..love you so much 😘

  28. Heinrich Fortuin

    Leona's voice on this whole record takes me to a whole new dimension! Pure vocal powerhouse! PS: I love that Eb6's in Power and all those belts!

  29. Elizabeth Kenney

    Very empowering song and album. Love it, every song is very strong, so well done. Thank you, Leona, for sharing your love, hope and strength.

  30. Raphael H

    She will always be my favorite singer. This is amazinnnng.

  31. Piotr PiotruS

    I was beliwen

  32. Amanda Fevrier

    Yes !!! I Am

  33. b1johnny

    One of the best voices all times,great singer waste her talent with own weak song.
    As songwriter is she very below average.

  34. Tammi Davidson

    Best female vocalist ever. I hope she comes back. So talented. Mariah Carey who?

  35. K P

    Rey needs to sing this to *ahem* *ahem*.....

  36. Sean Jenkins

    This album touched my heart and soul in a way her shallow pop hits of the past never did. I don't care what the numbers are. She's a more mature artist and a better vocalist

  37. Guest 0

    Yeah this song is definitely speaking out against her former record labels for trying to control her and what music she put out there. She's now free from their control and can sing whatever she pleases. 👏

  38. andrew webber

    Great song and vocals but released with almost no noticeable promotion. What was her record company thinking??!!

  39. lovetogolf

    Great song!!!

  42. Suzy Dupriest

    Nothing but true talent here She's not like some of the other's selling sex and other gimmicks to sale herself. Stay true to yourself Leona!

  56. Hammer Home

    I can't help but think of Leona as our modern day Mariah Carey replacement.... with a better personality

    LiL ENYO

    For real no one is better then mc

    Jamie Bell

    many people are better than MC now lol. Mariah is embarassing to listen to now; she tries too hard to sound "young and hip." her songwriting was GREAT at her peak..now it is cringeworthy...and Mariah's current voice is so shrill...she needs to stop trying to hit he highest notes and use her lower register more..cuz her high register is painful to listen to these days and she has to strain her voice so hard to reach the high note

    deenett blank

    Hammer Home at the end she said I'm me...that says it all...#love this woman

    LDA

    Jamie Bell wtf do u know...

    LaCurrone C

    most of her high notes were strained even when she was younger.

  57. Helen Lewis-Jones

    She is underrated....WOW WHAT A VOICE AND WHAT AN ALBUM - Way to go Leona!!!! The orchestration and musicians on this are absolutely amazing!

  59. Lucy Mead

    Leona if you see this I beg you to reply to this comment. what I was going to say was to ask you to write more songs your only 31 and very young still. you could bring back your name that everyone adored in 2009. that is all I ask of you. thank you if you listen to what I have said. You inspired me Leona.Lucy Mead

  60. Moncef Khalifa

    the text song is either strong and meaningful, then the music added to the great voice of Loena gave us a great song. Love the defy power and volonty along the song.

  61. Summer S

    why isn't this song getting radio play? She is such a great singer!!

  62. Summer S

    great song!!!!!

  63. daniala aja

    i am crazy loving you dear leona

  64. Jakubu Ole

    Say what you want about the disappointing sales but that whistle register at 3:17 is out of this world. Go Leona- you're saving lives with your god-given pipes.

  65. Mária Kiss

    I love this figure leonától king

  66. FlySkyWithU

    I am with or without you!!! Feel so tired of crying for you, you don't deserve my tears! You guys never forget that, as long as we still are ourselves and have ourselves and feel ourselves we are always us! Don't ever lose yourself, better lose someone but never yourself... Love you Leona <3

  67. 09neftali

    Weird reality where awesome artists are underrated and a couple of lame singers are at the top of the sales chart.

  80. Werten a.k.a Hoshi

    According to Wikipedia, this song hasn't charted at all anywhere.

    (shakes head)

  81. Krzysztof Wolnicki

    ill love leona forever no matter how simon cowell treated her. this is a strong song and its very too the point. she is showing here she is an independent artist and that she still has plenty of potential in her with her amazing emotional powerful voice. this album is a tiny bit of the future for leona, now.
