"Everything that I Am" is a song from Tarzan. Briefly, it has part of the song "I Need to Know" (when Tarzan imagines himself as a child singing that song when he's left alone). In this song, an adult Tarzan finds out who he really is: a human.

This is the last non-reprise musical number in the show; every other song following this is a reprise (and finale).

Later, Phil Collins would sing his own version of the song.

Lyrics (Character Version)Edit

NOTE: The part in brackets was derived from "I Need to Know" and would not be in Phil's version.

[Young Tarzan: Will someone tell me where I belong,
Where I should go?
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong?
I need to know.]

Adult Tarzan: Is this my past here before me?
Is this my story unfolding?
It's all here to discover
Everything that I am.

Can this be what I've been seeking?
All my life, I've been waiting for this.
And now these memories,
Will they make me see more?

Ooh, I wanna know where I belong.
I wanna know where I came from.
I wanna know the reason why I'm here,
The way I am
Feeling the things I feel.

Is this my family?
Can it really be them that I see?
My father and mother
And in her arms, can it really be me?
All these emotions
I can barely control.
'Cause the family I had
Is not the family I know.

Ooh, and I gotta know where I belong.
I gotta know where I came from.
I gotta know the reason why I'm here,
The way I am
Feeling the things I feel.

These spirits calling me
Familiar voices haunting.
Disappearing, taunting me
This is the choice I must make.

'Cause I know where I belong.
I know where I, I came from
I know the reason why I must decide and leave here, the man I am inside.

The future is clear for me to see
To be the man I'm meant to be
Like my father with my head held high
Standing tall
And proud of all
That I am.

I'm a man.

Lyrics (Phil Version)Edit

Is this my past here before me?
Is this my story unfolding?
It's all here to discover
Everything that I am.

Can this be what I've been seeking?
All my life, I've been waiting for this.
And now these memories, will they make me see more?

Ooh, I wanna know where I belong.
I wanna know where I came from.
I wanna know the reason why I'm here,
The way I am
Feeling the things I feel.
I wanna know the reason why
It will be hard, but I must try.
I've got to understand
Who I am
Why I'm here
Feeling the things I feel.

Is this my family?
Can it really be them that I see?
My father and mother,
And in her arms, can it really be me?
All these emotions
I can barely control,
'Cause the family I had
Is not the family I know.

Ooh, and I gotta know where I belong,
I gotta know where I came from.
I've gotta know the reasons why I'm here,
The way I am
Feeling the things I feel.

These spirits calling me
Familiar voices haunting
Disappearing taunting me
This is the choice I must make

'Cause I know where I belong.
I know where I, I came from.
I know the reason why I must decide, and leave here
The man I am inside.

The future is clear for me to see,
To be the man I'm meant to be.
Like my father with my head held high,
Standing tall
And proud of all
That I am.
I'm a man.
