I AM

I AM A DREAMER.

I WILL NOT SETTLE, I WILL NOT LEAD A NORMAL LIFE, I WILL NOT FIND SOME STUPID JOB THAT I HATE AND JUST BE MISERABLE. I'M SORRY IF THAT'S UPSETTING OR OFFENSIVE, BUT I WON'T.

I AM A DREAM CHASER.

And I will fight every day to have them. And I will never stop until I draw my last breath.

Thank you to all those who believed in me before I believed in myself. I owe so much to you. And thank you to all those who continue to believe in me and buoy me up as I continue fighting every day to make them reality. I am so, so blessed.



"Roots Before Branches"

[Rachel:]
So many things
To do and say
But I can't seem
To find my way
But I wanna know how
I know
I'm meant
For something else
But first
I gotta find myself
But I don't know how

[Rachel with Finn harmonizing:]
Oh, why do
I reach for the stars
When I don't have wings
To carry me that far?

[Rachel with Finn:]
I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

[Rachel (Finn):]
Sometimes
I don't wanna feel
(Sometimes
I don't wanna feel)

And forget the pain
Is real
(And forget the pain
Is real)

Put my head
In the clouds

Oh, start to run
And then I fall
(start to run
And then I fall)

Thinkin'
I can't get it all
Without my feet
On the ground
(Seein'
I can't get it all
Without my feet
On the ground)

[Rachel:]
There's always a seed
Before there's a rose
The more that it rains
The more I will grow

[Rachel with Finn:]
I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

[Rachel:]
Whatever comes
I know how to take it
Learn to be strong
I won't have to fake it
Oh, you're understandin'
The wind can come
And do its best
Blow me north, and south,
East and west
But I'll still
Be standing
I'll be standing

[Rachel & Finn with New Directions:]
If I have
Roots before branches
To know who I am (To know who I am)
Before I know
Who I'm gonna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world

I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith

[New Directions:]
To take chances
And live like I see
A place in this world
For me

[Rachel:]
I gotta have
Roots before branches

I HAVE FOUND MY ROOTS. I KNOW WHO I AM. I AM SO PROUD TO BE THE REAL ME. I AM NOT AFRAID, I AM NOT ASHAMED. I WILL NOT CHANGE.

I AM A DREAMER. I AM A DREAMCHASER

AND I AM A FIGHTER WHO WILL NEVER QUIT. EVER.
