I am a human, and so I have human thoughts and feelings.


Saw a girl about six years old,
She was such a sight to behold,
Asked her what she wanted to be,
And this is what she said to me.

I'm growin up rough,
Go through some tough stuff,
I'm gunna be with a boy forever,
And act like I been hurt never.

But most of all I'm gunna be me,
Who God wants me to be,
She smiled up at me,
And all I could see.

Was that,
She was growing up rough,
Starting to turn so tough,
But she was gunna be free,
Like God wants her to be.

She walked away to her mom,
She turned back but I was gone,
I had to think about what she said,
So I went home and went to bed.

And this is what I saw,
It was not flawed.

I'm growin up rough,
Go through some tough stuff,
I'm gunna be with a boy forever,
And act like I been hurt never.

But most of all I'm gunna be me,
Who God wants me to be,
She smiled up at me,
And I could just see.

Who I want to be,
Oh baby.
Saw a girl bout six years old,
Knew what she was gunna be.
