I was asked to translate a song. I tried to understand the lyrics but I couldn't seem to get it right. The lines are:
(Say Amen, Panic at the Disco)
And every morning when I wake up
I wanna be who I couldn't say I'd ever been
Context (lines that follow):
(But it's so much more than I ever was
If every night I go to sleep knowing
That I gave everything that I had to give
Then it's all I could've asked for)
Do the two lines mean that he wants to be a better person but can't say he has ever been (in the past)?
I am trying to translate it to German!
