No One Knows Who I Am - Wildhorn

The “No One Knows Who I Am ” is a song from Jekyll & Hyde – a musical horror-drama loosely based on the novella Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Originally conceived for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden, it features music by Wildhorn, a book by Leslie Bricusse and lyrics by Wildhorn, Bricusse and Cuden.

After a world premiere run in Houston, Texas, the musical embarked on a national tour of the United States prior to its Broadway debut in 1997. Many international productions in various languages have since been staged including two subsequent North American tours, two tours in the United Kingdom, a concert version and re-vamped US tour in 2012 ahead of a 2013 Broadway revival.

Lyrics

Look at me and tell me who I am,
Why I am, what I am.
Call me a fool and it’s true I am,
I don’t know who I am.
It’s such a shame,
I’m such a sham.
No one knows who I am.
Once there were sweet possibilities,
I could see, just for me.
Now all my dreams are just memories,
Fated never to be.
Time’s not a friend, hurrying by.

I wonder who am I?
Am I the face of the future?
Am I the face of the past?
Am I the one who must finish last?
Look at me and tell me who I am,
Why I am, what I am.
Will I survive?
Who will give a damn,
If no one knows who I am?
Nobody knows,
Not even you,
No one knows who I am
