Somewhere In The Middle

If you could only see the world through my eyes
Carry all the weight of one race in my disguise
There's nothing you can say to heal the pain
I'm reminded that I'm different every time I say my name

I'm somewhere in the middle
somewhere in between
and I hope I made you proud for just being me
I can't change my past or who I'm supposed to be
I'm adopted by destiny and loved by you

Tell me about your life and the struggle you've been through
Maybe we'll find common ground, let's talk about you
You gave me all the tools to follow my dreams
And I know know it wasn't easy
But somehow we made it through

Through the good times and the bad
You always stood by me
For the man that I'll become I give thanks to you

There will be people who stop and stare
They won't understand us and the bond we share
You might have to speak up to help them understand
and I will always love you the best I can

I'm somewhere in the middle
Somewhere in between
and I hope I made you proud for just being me
I can't change my past or who I'm supposed to be
I'm adopted by destiny and loved by you
