If we are not careful to examine our values and motivations, we can suddenly find ourselves living out other people’s lives and expectations. Today’s song by David Dunn reminds us to stay true to our Christian faith and convictions: “Ready To Be Myself.”

Who am I gonna be

When nobody’s watching me

I want to be real

What am I gonna do

To live what I know is true

Today, let us ask what more we can do to live out the truth of our faith—and commit to improving our observance and dedication each day.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Today, today is the day
I'm waking up to say
I'm tired of the way
The way that I change
I rearrange myself to be
Someone that everybody loves
So I become someone I'm not

Who am I gonna be
When nobody's watching me
I want to be real
What am I gonna do
To live what I know is true
I let go
And oh, I've been someone else
God, I'm ready to be myself

Now, now is the time
To open up my eyes and see what I will find
I find I made up my mind
To be someone that everybody loves
So I became someone I'm not

Who am I gonna be
When nobody's watching me
I want to be real
What am I gonna do
To live what I know is true
I let go
And oh, I've been someone else
I'm ready to be myself

I want to be something more
Than a man who needs to be adored
It shouldn't matter to me
And with every breath that I have left
I'm gonna breathe it out hoping that
He says, "You've done well"

Who am I gonna be?
What am I gonna do?
Whoa, yeah
So who am I gonna be?
Yeah, who am I gonna be?

Oh, who am I gonna be
When nobody's watching me
I want to be real
What am I gonna do
To live what I know is true
I let go
And oh, I've been someone
Whoa, I've been someone
Whoa, I've been someone else
God, I'm ready to be myself
God, I'm ready to be myself
