Story

When I met Emma Lookatch she was not yet 3 and was in multiple braces and a walker and was able to make sounds but not words. Her motions were halted and her spine was weak. I wrote this song for her and all the other wonderful kids who were born challenged and who have to fight harder than any of us will ever know to do what was given to us as an unremarkable milestone. Emma is now 10 and just finished walking 5 miles, unassisted in the March of Dimes March for Babies for now the second year in a row. She talks and dances and laughs and is as smart as any child you would ever meet. What a brave and fighting spirit she and all our special kids have. With lots of love I dedicate this song to Emma.

Lyrics

Hey, Hey, Hey Look at me.

I’m more than you think you see.

In my life there has been struggle then some things come more easily

Hey, you would not believe.

All the things I can do and how hard I’ve worked to achieve

Come on and dance with me, ‘cause my spirit’s wild and free

I am far from weak, I’ve won more battles than you’ll ever see

 

Hey, take another look at me

I am strong and I can fight I have will and I’ve got might, plenty

Hey, please don’t judge me

Just like Dr. Stephen Hawkings I’ve got my own place in History

I may be different, yeah! But that doesn’t make me less

Just like everyone, I’m gonna do my personal best

 

And I’m gonna be the best me that I can be

Yeah, I’m gonna be the best me that I can be, Hey…

 

I feel love and pain just like everyone

Who I am is who I am and I’m the only one!

 

I’m gonna be the best me that I can be

Yeah, I’m gonna be the best me that I can be

I’m gonna be the best me that I can be

Yeah, I’m gonna be the best me that I can be

Hey look at me…
