Verse 1
The main idea in the first verse is I am me.
Oh, I am a vision
And I can can see clearly.
If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall look em in the face and say.

I agree that we all see yourself in the future, and don’t let anyone judge you for your appearance.
The chorus main idea is about believing in yourself and being your own strength.
“I’m that little bit of hope when my backs against the rope”
“Hey,I made it I’m the worlds greatest”
I agree that we all have to be our own strength because if our strength is with someone else what would happen to us when we need it.So by seeing ourselves as unique things we can support ourselves.
Verse 2
The main idea in the second verse is I am who I am
“I am a giant,
I am an eagle
I am a lion down in the jungle..”
“If anybody asks look ‘em in the face and say..”
Yes I agree. This is because it explains who he is and gaining strength to stand up for yourself no matter what others say.
Verse 3
Striving to achieve and love all that is around you
“In the ring of life, I’ll reign love”
“use a success you’ll find in me”
I agree because it defines the pain that people sacrifice to strive to achieve what they wanted and that they’ll share the world with love.
Verse 4

Friends there Till the end....

Friends Till The End
Friends are all I need,
Always by my side,
For they are my special bead,
Wearing our school colours in pride,
Friendship is about love and Care that we shall Cherish
for all eternity,
I Try all that a friend can do,
To make their dreams come true.
A friend is a Friend,
They’re a gift from god
They are the steps to your future,
Leading you through good times and Bad times
A friend is someone who stays there till the end...
No Matter WHAT
