Thursday Thought – I'm Not Who I was


I really like this song "I'm Not Who I Was" by Brandon Heath. Musically it is simple but strong. Give it a listen some time if you get the chance.

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was

Used to be mad at you
A little on the hurt-side too
But I'm not who I was

Found my way around
To forgiving you, sometime ago
But I never got to tell you

So..

I found us in a photograph
Saw me and I had to laugh
You know, I'm not who I was

Ooo, there you were right above me
And I wonder if you ever loved me
Just for who I was

When the pain came back again
Like a bitter friend
It was all that I could do
To keep myself from blaming you

Ooo..

Thinking that it's a funny thing
Figured out I can sing
Now I'm not who I was

I write about love and such
Maybe because I want it so much
I'm not who I was

I was thinkin' maybe I,
Should let you know
That I am not the same
But I never did forget your name

Hello

But the thing that I find most amazing,
The amazing grace
Is the chance to give it up
Maybe that's what love is all about

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was

Hmmm...what were your thursday thoughts after all? Forgiveness? Now I'm interested to know what you were really thinking about...
I like the line: "I write about love and such, Maybe because I want it so much."...doesn't it sound like so many of us?
I miss your thoughts...glad you're posted them again
