Relient K - Who I Am Hates Who I've Been (Acoustic) Lyrics




I watched the proverbial sunrise
Coming up over the Pacific and
You might think I'm losing my mind
But I will shy away from the specifics

'Cause I don't want you to know where I am
'Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
And this is no place to try and live my life

Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it
See that line. I never should have crossed it
Stop right there. I never should have said that
It's the very moment that I wish that I could take back

I'm sorry for the person I became
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
'Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been

And I talk to absolutely no one
Couldn't keep to myself enough
And the things bottled inside have finally begun
To create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up

And I heard the reverberating footsteps
Syncing up to the beating of my heart
And I was positive that unless I got myself together
I would watch me fall apart

And I can't let that happen again
'Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
And this is no place to try and live my life

I'm sorry for the person I became
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to try never become that way again
'Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been

    It’s 2019 and I’ve rediscovered my love for this version as well as for RelientK ♥️

  3. Mike

    I still get chills

    2019 anyone?

  5. Sugar Armor

    Hell yeah 2019 😱

  6. Ahmad Mahadi

    some songs are still part of you no matter how many has passed and it is not because the song but the memory... 2019?

  8. Katie Kuster

    2019! Who's here?

  9. XxAngelxX

  10. Andrew Vela

    This song has helped me threw my addiction to heroin and continue to fight my sobriety one day at a time!

  11. Rizo אֲבִישָׁלוֹם Catarata

    this song describes the convert's heart. i like the idea that atheist's are listening to this song unknowing of the whole meaning. I like the idea that in their head they sing... "'cause i dont want YOU to know where i am."... with them unknowingly know the meaning of YOU.

  12. Marleny Saquec

    Loved the song.....

  13. Emily L

    First heard this song in middle school and now listening in 2018... I just turned 22 and I can now relate to this song in a way that middle school me couldn't ... 💔

  14. Andres Becerra

    Not a christian anymore but i still love this song. Still I think, who I am hates who I was. ;)

  22. Toni Sears

    This song is me when I was in active addiction

  23. David Wilson

    I wish it was better quality

  24. The Grey Fedora

    That intro will get you feeling some way

  25. Kelli Hug

    This helped me get clean.

  26. krispy107

    This song has always been very important to me. I just listened to it again for the first time in years and I can't close the valve for my tear ducts.

  27. Josh Cheon

    in my humble opinion, I think I'll stick to the original.

  28. Joey C

    most under rated. listening in 2017.

  29. Sylvester Alexander

    this is on the first CD not the 2nd

  30. Kelly Cameron

    still jamming this!!!

  31. RocketTwurpSLR

    its a sence of being unbalanced lifestyle, when your unbalanced you start to see things differently, and get into a cycle of doing the same old habits witch can give you dejavu. your sick of it but you want to a change but you don't think you can cuz no-one understands it so you feel realy bad .

  32. ThisGuy_ Gaming

    this song describes many others but the thing is we r all different and if there was a god he wouldn't let us suffer if he loved us and why is it a he and what made this top authority to command us all this Is my opinion I believe in him but then I don't basicly God has nothing to do with how we feel and how we act it's our own problem we just have to gather the strength to change we have to pound or skull with words saying change I need to change I want to help I don't want to be a nothing I don't want to be the problem of someone's pain u know? anyways that's my thoughts and if u disagree with any of it idc cause I feel it's right in my eyes and nobody can change that

    Avichayil זֶ֫בַח

    God doesn't let us suffer, we make ourselves suffer. People are evil, it ain't his fault that no one loves each other like he asked us to do, and besides didn't god get crucified? And all of his disciples as well? Even people that believe in god, including god himself, suffer on earth. This place is evil man, it's of the devil, blame him.

  33. Saikou Forever

    Describes how i feel right now

  34. ShadowKnight Soul

    This made me cry

  35. Adam Hughes

    finally i love guitar again after giving my electric guitar to a buddy and jam out!

  36. My Lissa

    Sorry for the person I began 😔

  37. Space Fan Alien Robot

    I have never found a song that describes how I've been most of my life. I really I'm sorry for the person I am and who I've become. For so long I've desperately wanted to change.

    Ana Lerdo

  38. Runecrow

    I love this song, but the sound quality of this upload hurts my ears.

  39. Mits Visperas

    I watched the proverbial sunrise
    Coming up over the Pacific and
    You might think I'm losing my mind,
    But I will shy away from the specifics...

    'cause I don't want you to know where I am
    'cause then you'll see my heart
    In the saddest state it's ever been.

    This is no place to try and live my life.

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.
    See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.
    Stop right there. Well I never should have said
    That it's the very moment that
    I wish that I could take back.

    [Chorus]
    I'm sorry for the person I became.
    I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.
    I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
    'cause who I am hates who I've been.
    Who I am hates who I've been.

    I talk to absolutely no one.
    Couldn't keep to myself enough.
    And the things bottled inside have finally begun
    To create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up.

    I heard the reverberating footsteps
    Synching up to the beating of my heart,
    And I was positive that unless I got myself together,
    I would watch me fall apart.

    And I can't let that happen again
    'cause then you'll see my heart
    In the saddest state it's ever been.

    This is no place to try and live my life.

    [Pre-Chorus x2]
    [Chorus]

    Who I am hates who I've been
    And who I am will take the second chance you gave me.
    Who I am hates who I've been
    'cause who I've been only ever made me...

    So sorry for the person I became.
    So sorry that it took so long for me to change.
    I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
    'cause who I am hates who I've been.
    Who I am hates who I've been.

  52. garbara berwald

    this is no place to try and live my lifeeeeeeeeeee. O)O)O))OO)O)O)OOO))OOO)O)O{. This song is gay.

    Nudge Bott

    Coming from a nine year old with little to no experience of anything in life that's *definitely* a valid opinion. By the way, if you're calling things "gay" as an insult at your age your mum should be washing your face out with soap.
    Have a nice day kiddo. Hope you don't have to understand this kind of music ever, it'd be better for you.

    jazzfestyz

    Good one

    Until Dawn

    +garbara berwald that would be why I am listening to it.

  53. Crystal Lynx

    This is my favourite song ever.

  54. C A B L E

    Is it me or is there a different version if their acoustic version of this song because it sounds different around the bridge like it's slower anyone else notice this or is it just me?

  55. Awly Itwink

    Hahaha traded it for a job of doing the rest lmao

  56. Akyanos

    As much as I love this song, I have to ask; is it just me that thinks the quality is like a Skype call?

    Timanom

    this video is 7 years old, quality wasn't too high back then

    Jake

    I've noticed it too.

    Katie Kuster

    haha yes just thought that

  57. Khairul Nizzam

    Trying to make up again with my ex girlfriend, and when she's showing signs of acceptance, I am starting to feel like " Stop right there! that's exactly where I lost it
    See that line? Well, I never should've crossed it, stop right there! Well, I never should've said that, it's the very moment that I wish that I could take back" Fuck my life.

  63. Nymphetar Sepabobb

    I know depression doesn't come from a particular event but my twin brother passed away 2 Years ago after a 9 month coma from being hit by a jeep while he was longboarding to deliver a note. I still have never self harmed. I got into some hard drugs but I just think self harm would inflict more stress on the situation, as did hard drugs. Back to only smoking green and I still don't self harm. I wasn't trying to put anyone down im trying to encourage others that it gets easier and there's no reason to hurt yourself

    ColCustardKicksAss

    Really sorry for your loss. If my brother died, it would be unbearable... I can't even imagine. Although this reply is 8 months late and probably pretty stupid - but you can message me if you needed a chat about anything. 

    TheFreezingGamer21

    What drugs?

    vierkante aardappel

    @TheFreezingGamer21 my exact thought

    DIRTYxBLUE

    Adam Lindley love you man keep smoking herb

    Dakota winters

    hard drugs are a form of self-harm, i should know

  64. Hanna

    This is such a nice way of playing "acoustic". Gotta love this song!! <3

  65. PrejudicePotatoe

    dat 240p...

  66. TheRealKushP

    Who's chopping onions around here?

    Jason Nicholas

    Never fails to make my eyes water... :')

    Brooke Anne Roland

    Oh my God, seriously though. Such a great song. ;-;

    Kyle Noonan

    Whoever it is has infinite onions apparently

  67. imwierdsodealwithit

    I'm just confused as to why Relient K is being called "punk" here...

    weeble c

    early on rk was a punk rock and around 2007 they became more of an alternative rock band

  68. Khalina Hosein

    Over 7 years this song is still amazing

  69. Judi Herman

    The comments are like a history book but kinda interesting and with no explanations

  70. sudikai

    These comments..

  71. Triballl Strife

    Ho man so many disturbing histories on this song coments. i dont even know what to say ... i think im gonna comment else where ...

    Bluesion

    I know right, I don't understand why people leave their life story's here 

  72. Eva Kriki

    Stay strong I hope you haven't cut since the time you post that... Many people have been through this (I haven't cut in 1 and a half month)

  73. xXmeggiegoeseawrXx

    Okay, joking or not, I take the cutting part offensive.
    Don't ever joke about that. I've dealt with self-harm and I'm pretty sure other who see it have too. It's triggering, it's not funny, it's NOT cute.
    I'm sorry, but it's flat out bullshit.
    No joking about self-harm.

  74. UseryHee

    pLEES STOP. My life is getting way 2 hard guise with ur mean comments to me I wil start cutting myself becuz I can n0t tayk it an e more. First I need to comment on every video about it to random strangers/tell all of my friends so that I can gain as much attention as I can because that makes my balls tingle.

  75. Justin K.

    Fuck you

  76. UseryHee

    Yeahhhh the virtually unlimited amount of music at their disposal on their technological device, and their whiny piss poor comments they were able to virtually share throughout the world with a click of a button. GIVE ME A GOD DAMN BREAK AHAHAHAHAHAHHA ohh BoOOOHOooO ur lyfe is sooooooo hard guise lmao

  77. Hank Ralf

    Love this song

  78. MewMewWinx

    Good job, longer than I lasted, one and a half weeks. But I'm working on going two, maybe stopping all together...

  79. zak hittit

    You no what why don't you just go and FUCK yourself. Every body has there own problems and who in the hell are you to judge. If music is there way of escaping this HELL we call earth then so be it. Personally i think that Zo Kool and every body else who posted about there own struggles are very brave.

  80. Hendrelix

    This song reminds me of my bad side. I have horrible anger issues, depression, and am antisocial. But due to one girl, I am past the antisocial, and working on depression. The anger issues still exist, and I've been teetering on the edge of self harm. But I heard this song and wanted to make her proud. Today I stop this mental and physical hell. Wish me luck in this world, where change is so difficult to make.

  81. UseryHee

    please tell me more about how these 12 year olds are "heartbroken" AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Whine some more plz.

  82. demsokk

    You got low self esteem?

  83. Casey Brower

    You aren't cute at all. Self harm is serious and nothing to make fun of.

  84. Maychi

    It's very good that you're at least trying. Lots of people, young and little souls don't find their way out of darkness. I'm so sorry for them, but they even don't let you to carry them into the light. I realy hope you will find lots of trustfull people and real meaning of love in your life.

  85. Camille S.

    Used to self harm. On Monday it will be 3 years and 3 months since the last time I hurt myself intentionally

  86. Jeff W

    Lol I just noticed this. That's funny. Kinda ironic for a Christian rock band to be uploaded by them.

    this song is so heartfelt and all those out there doing self-harm, I feel so bad and I just listen to this song and just think about everything in life, the good and the bad things.

    I use to self-harm.. One month clean.

  91. Charlie Palian

    your an ass

  92. Bunni Opal

    I'm trying to recover from depression but sometimes its so hard that I've lost friends due to it and my attitude I'm also recovering from being Insecure about how I look and thinking just negatively about how I am

  93. On-Orodruin-Walks

    If you want to be a bitter, cynical person, go ahead. Enjoy your poison. Youtube is not losing "his" sleep at night worrying about that, and neither are my lots of people and I. Goodbye.

  94. On-Orodruin-Walks

    No, I said exactly what I meant.

  95. Mukaido Manaka

    Good job.

    Always remember that you're beautiful no matter what anyone says. ^w^

  96. TheBigGummyBear

    Frank. You're an idiot, And.. Frankly, to be talking to you makes me sad.
