AM I

          AM  I ?

AM I  JUST STANDING HERE
OR  AM I JUST DEAD 
AM I SO FULL OF FEAR 
I LOST MY SELF INSTEAD
AM  I  NOBODY
THAT YOU CAN'T DEFEND ME
OR AM I JUST INVISIBLE
THAT YOU REALLY DON'T PRETEND
AM I BLIND
OR I JUST DON'T WISH TO SEE
THE LOVE I CAN NOT FIND 
IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME

AM I HEARING THE TRUTH
OR HAVE  I JUST BEEN DECIEVED
WHO DO I TRUST 
WHO CAN I BELIEVE
AM I SO MAD 
I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND
OR AM I SO SAD
I NEED A SHOULDER OR A HAND
IS  IT  JUST ME
OR AM I ALL ALONE
