Who I Was Born to Be

Chords and lyrics for Who I Was Born to Be by Susan Boyle

When I was a child
 
I could see  
G 
the wind in the trees
And I heard a song in the breeze
 
It was  
E 
there, singing  
Em 
out my name
Bm 
 
But I am not  
C 
 
girl
D 
I have  
G 
known the taste of defeat
And I’ve finally grown to believe
 
It  
Em 
will all came around  
E 
again
 
And though  
Bm 
I may not know  
C 
the 
 
answers
D 
I can  
G 
finally say I am free
 
And if the  
F# 
questions led  
C 
me 
 
here
 
Then  
G 
 
 
D 
am who I was born to be
Em 
 
And so here  
C 
am 
 
I
 
Open arms  
G 
and ready to  
C 
stand
 
I’ve  
D 
got the  
G 
world in my  
A 
hands
And it feels like my turn to fly
F# 
 
Though  
F#m 
I may not know the  
C#m 
answers
 
I can finally  
D 
say I  
E 
am 
 
free
A 
And if the questions led  
G# 
me 
 
 
D 
here
 
Then I am who  
E 
I was born to be
 
When  
F#m 
I was a child
D 
There were flowers  
A 
that bloomed in the night
 
Unafraid to  
E 
take 
 
 
A 
in the light
 
Unashamed to have  
D 
braved the dark
 
Though  
E 
I may not  
D 
know the answers
 
I  
F#m 
can finally say  
D 
I am free
 
And if  
A 
the questions led me here
 
Then I am who  
D 
I was  
E 
born to be
 
I  
A 
am who  
Am 
I was born to be
