That's me

There’s a man who punches at the breeze,
Who tilts at windmills till he bleeds,
Who never stops dreaming his dreams – that man is me

A man who gets tangled up in his thoughts,
Who pretends to be sure though he’s in doubt,
Who never concedes that he’s at fault – that’s me

That’s me and you can't teach new tricks to old dogs
That’s me and a leopard can't change his spots
That’s me – that’s me
I am as I am and as I’ll be

There’s a woman who often plays the fool,
Who bites off more than she can chew,
But deep inside she’s feeling blue – that’s me

A woman who tends to boast sometimes,
Who laughs too loud, who never cries,
Who buries her fears inside – that’s me

That’s me and you can't teach new tricks to old dogs
That’s me and a leopard can't change his spots
That’s me – that’s me
I am as I am and as I’ll be

A woman who always tries her best,
To do the right thing more or less
Not always with the desired success - that's me

A man who often acts to fast
Who made a lot of mistakes in the past
But who saw his faults at last - that's me

That’s me and you can't teach new tricks to old dogs
That’s me and a leopard can't change his spots
That’s me – that’s me
I am as I am and as I’ll be

The one who loves you deep and true,
To the ends of the world will carry you
Who will do everything for you - that's me

The one who walks for you the line
Who will always stand by your side
Who loves you 'till the end of time - that's me

That’s me and you can't teach new tricks to old dogs
That’s me and a leopard can't change his spots
That’s me – that’s me
Take me as I am, believe in me
