Hive Open Mic Week 107 | This Is Me | Cover

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


It's a big feat to be brave as this doesn't come naturally to everyone. Sometimes, those who seem timid have a whole lot of bravery in them that they themselves are oblivious of or yet to unlock. It just takes them realising that they are bigger than what they think or have been told in order to shine bright.

This Is Me kept ringing in mind when I saw the theme of the week. Those words came naturally to me many years ago because I was in total acceptance of my persona. Even when people tried to make me feel less, I was brave to know that I am not what they say or think. It takes a brave mind to love yourself as you are as well as love others.

There are two songs with the title This Is Me that I really like and I was going to sing the one from the The Greatest Showman movie but @khaleesii beat me to it with her beautiful rendition yesterday.

I decided to go with the second This Is Me song which is also from a movie. I bet all 90's/Disney babies know this song from the movie Camp Rock.

I know every week since my participation in Open Mic, I come and say "this is my favorite song", but honestly, this is my favorite song, no jokes. It's one of those songs that stays with you years after and I really love how bold and brave it made me feel when I first heard it.

LYRICS

I've always been the kind of girl
That hid my face
So afraid to tell the world
What I've got to say
But I have this dream right inside of me
I'm gonna let it show, it's time
To let you know, to let you know

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be

This is me
Do you know what it's like to feel so in the dark?
To dream about a life where you're the shining star
Even though it seems like it's too far away
I have to believe in myself, it's the only way

This is real, This is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be

This is me
You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you, I gotta find you

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light shine on me
Now I've found who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be, yeah

This is me
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
You're the voice I hear inside my head (this is me, yeah)
The reason that I'm singing
Now I've found, who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be
This is me

Es una gran hazaña ser valiente, ya que esto no es algo natural para todos. A veces, aquellos que parecen tímidos tienen mucha valentía de la que ellos mismos no se dan cuenta o aún no la han desbloqueado. Solo hace falta que se den cuenta de que son más grandes de lo que piensan o de lo que les han dicho para brillar.

This Is Me seguía sonando en mi mente cuando vi el tema de la semana. Esas palabras me vinieron naturalmente hace muchos años porque estaba en total aceptación de mi persona. Incluso cuando la gente trató de hacerme sentir menos, fui valiente al saber que no soy lo que dicen o piensan. Se necesita una mente valiente para amarse a uno mismo tal como es y amar a los demás.

Hay dos canciones con el título This Is Me que realmente me gustan e iba a cantar la de la película The Greatest Showman pero @khaleesii me ganó con su hermosa interpretación ayer.

Decidí ir con la segunda canción de This Is Me, que también es de una película. Apuesto a que todos los bebés de los 90/Disney conocen esta canción de la película Camp Rock.

Sé que todas las semanas desde mi participación en Open Mic vengo y digo "esta es mi canción favorita", pero honestamente, esta es mi canción favorita, no es broma. Es una de esas canciones que se quedan contigo años después y realmente me encanta lo audaz y valiente que me hizo sentir cuando la escuché por primera vez.

LETRA

Siempre he sido el tipo de chica
Que escondió mi cara
Tan asustado de decirle al mundo
lo que tengo que decir
Pero tengo este sueño dentro de mí
Voy a dejar que se muestre, es hora
Para hacerte saber, para hacerte saber

Esto es real esta soy yo
Estoy exactamente donde se supone que debo estar, ahora
Voy a dejar que la luz brille sobre mí
Ahora he encontrado quien soy
No hay forma de contenerlo
No más ocultar quién quiero ser

Esta soy yo
¿Sabes lo que es sentirse así en la oscuridad?
Soñar con una vida en la que eres la estrella brillante
Aunque parezca que está demasiado lejos
Tengo que creer en mí mismo, es la única manera

Esto es real esta soy yo
Estoy exactamente donde se supone que debo estar, ahora
Voy a dejar que la luz brille sobre mí
Ahora he encontrado quien soy
No hay forma de contenerlo
No más ocultar quién quiero ser

Esta soy yo
Eres la voz que escucho dentro de mi cabeza
La razón por la que estoy cantando
Necesito encontrarte, tengo que encontrarte
Eres la pieza que falta que necesito
La canción dentro de mí
Necesito encontrarte, tengo que encontrarte

Esto es real esta soy yo
Estoy exactamente donde se supone que debo estar, ahora
Voy a dejar que la luz brille sobre mí
Ahora he encontrado quien soy
No hay forma de contenerlo
No más esconder quién quiero ser, sí

Esta soy yo
Eres la pieza que falta que necesito
La canción dentro de mí
Eres la voz que escucho dentro de mi cabeza (este soy yo, sí)
La razón por la que estoy cantando
Ahora he encontrado, quién soy
No hay forma de contenerlo
No más ocultar quién quiero ser
Esta soy yo

I hear your thoughts, that sometimes even if someone seems shy, maybe that same person has a lot of courage. You are also brave, singing acapella,a which is not easy, but you are doing it very well @wolfofnostreet :)

Thank you for your entry

Thanks a lot for listening. Yes, singing acapella is not easy particularly in front of the camera, but I have fun doing it.
