Relient K - Who I Am Hates Who I've Been 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.

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.

  7. N1ght44

    Lmao I was gonna perform this in a talent show back in 2008 but my school didn't like the title so I did Fireflies with my friend instead... But this was one of my favorite songs back then and listening to it now gives me nostalgia chills

    Hey guys, I love this song so much. I also love the video you guys made for it. I thought it eloquently captured so many profound concepts so elegantly. Wondering why you don't have it on your channel. Please put it up if possible. I think it can help a lot of people in addition to the incredible music it accompanies. I know it helped me and I thank you for it and this song. May God bless you and all those who seek His light.

  23. Jordan Hughes

    I’m worried some people think they have sinned too much to be saved, no one who can turn to Jesus Christ is unforgivable. That’s satans trick

    Jordan Hughes

    It doesn’t matter what was said

    Jordan Hughes

    For ALL SINS AND BLASPHEMY CAN BE FORGIVEN... that’s a pretty big list then suddenly we just say the wrong words and we are like i guess I’m done. It’s commen to man to have that struggle at times, satans goal is to make you believe you can’t be forgiven

  35. deloreanman14

    This song came out right as I was about to graduate high school in 2005. I never liked music of that era when I was living it but it's been long enough now that the nostalgia is strong. Somebody left a Relient K CD in one of the vehicles I drive for work and when this came on, it felt like a time warp back to 2005. Maybe those times were okay...the music seems to have aged better than I have.

  36. Aerynnn

    This takes me back... I remember how happy I was after hearing it for months on the radio, and never knowing the name, finally seeing it on MTV and figuring it out. Been blasting on whatever device I'm using ever since.

  37. J -

    I’m glad this song popped up in my head when I saw my friend listening to Relient

  38. Vee

    Oh my god this takes me back

  39. Ejay Angeles

    I just discovered the band few days ago and the first time I heard this song made me say, "This is my kind of music."

    C-Threep Music

  47. Rob Young

    NOSTALGIA

  48. Jeon Larco Zeolie

    WOW THEY'RE SO COOL



    But seriously though, they're amazing. I first heard their song, Devestation and Reform in Spotify while I was browsing and I was like, "woah, this song is really nice", and of course i searched the song, and I was actually surprised that it's been 10 - 11 years since they created the song. So I just want say that they definitely need more attention and I am really, really happy that I stumbled upon their band in Spotify, looking forward for discovering more bands just like them.

  49. SAiKA

    I've loved this song since I was a little girl.

  50. Baconface McGee

    This is the song that introduced me to the band all those years back when Air1 played them.

  51. Another Random

    I recently stumbled across this Relient K, and I absolutely love their music. Is clean, upbeat, and overall pleasant. So much better than most music. It’s 2018, where are you guys at?

  52. Thereal Theone

    Nostalgic 😂🤗😅😧😢😭

  53. Xaius

    The opening of this song sounds just like the beginning of an anime theme. Does anyone know what I'm thinking of?

    david joseph

    Jarod Hiscok it was bleach

  54. ZhinZhaw Gourneau

    Shut up with the bible passages and just enjoy the song for fucks sakes. MMHMM was the last Relient K album I bought because after that its nothing but Christian rock. I miss the old Relient K.

  55. choko choko

    nostalgia we want this kind of music! hahaha

  56. matchboxcody

    Funny how in the description it says to purchase the album, “available now.” Crazy how it’s been available for about 14 years now. Time flies.

    @strawburry17 brought me here & I thanks her for this. This song is perfect for me Atm. X

  74. kolaida

    Damn, this takes me back like ten years--no, closer to like fifteen years now. Still just as good! :)

  75. Autumn Girgin

    Storytime:
    So in my junior high computer class, we had a project that we had to edit a PowerPoint to a song and animate and time it to lyrics and pictures we put in. WELL my best friend and I got into a huge fight around the time this project was due, so I used this song to technically apologize to her. Well she didn't understand the meaning behind the video because I never told her. 😂 I think of that dumb fight every time I hear this song.

  76. Spüdley

    I remembered when I saw the music video of this song on TVU over a decade ago. Wow, time flew by!

  77. Josh Cheon

    This is the good stuff right here. What people call "Modern rock" nowadays is like watered down cola. Not enough taste or fizz. But this stuff from the early two thousands is like perrier tonic water. They're not afraid to rock out, but at the same time respect the fact that the lyrics should have some actual content that pertains to the genre.

  78. Amira Abbas

    the best fucking lyrics ever written.

  79. Suffering In Silence

    great song

  80. sportsygirl8

    Gosh! Still to this day, this song is my most favorite from Relient K!!!

  81. Wendy Orchard

    best album

  82. Ay Sal

    As much as i enjoy this tune, who i am doesn't hate who i've been. The bible says that in Matthew 5:43+ to love your enemy. I was "my own worst enemy" and there are many people like the old me out there in the world. I don't hate them either. God love is unconditional, he loves you and the old you, the only difference is that you love Him now. But he love you first, so don't hate you you were or others that remind you of the old you!

  83. ArchangelDrake

    SOUNDTRACK TO MY FUCKING LIFE

  85. Libby Fugate

    Hey 😊 I don't know if you actually read these but your acoustic song who I am hates who I've been helped me heal my relationship with my family. They hated me they were even talking about throwing me out on the streets and this song changed me and helped me not give up. And it would mean so much if you played that song in Denver in September.Thank you.
