Lyrics: I Am

I Am (author and copyright unknown)

 

I am the fire that shows no flame, I am the killer who has no name

I am the wind you cannot feel, I am the truth that is not real

I am the river that flows nowhere, I am the feeling that does not care

I am the drug your body’s been missing, I am the soul that you’ve been wishing for

 

I am… I am… I am… I am the man

 

I am the time that will not pass, I am the future living in the past

I am the shadow you cannot see, I am the prisoner you cannot free

I am the legend of lust, love and pain, I am the man who’s lost his name

I am the drug your body’s been missing, I am the soul that you’ve been wishing for

 

I am… I am… I am… I am the man

I am… I am… I am… I am the man

I am… I am… I am… I am the man

 

I am the fire that shows no flame, I am the killer who has no name

I am the wind you cannot feel, I am the truth that is not real

I am the river that flows nowhere, I am the feeling that does not care

I am the drug your body’s been missing, I am the soul that you’ve been wishing for

 

I am… I am… I am… I am the man

  1. Heard this for the first time last night & can’t get enough. I’ve been playing every version I can find on YouTube! Would love to know how much of this is Benjamin’s original work; i.e., lyrics, music, arrangement.

  2. John Kalishes wrote this. Most of the unreleased solo stuff John wrote with Ben, tho John was the main writer. The reason the unreleased stuff is out there is because I told John he could trust a certain fan and that fan THOUGHT he could trust yet another fan. And well it’s out there now. River of Fire however was written by someone else… John couldn’t remember the guy’s name… so no Ben or John involvement there writing wise. Gosh, it’s been just about 16yrs since John passed. Not sure how much I remember but I know John was main writer, like Diane was on The Lace. Ben contributed to writing by putting in his 2 cents with words or phrases/phrasing and melody changes I’m sure. John was always complementary toward Ben’s musical abilities. He loved and missed his friend very much.
