** "The Way

* "The Song of Dusk" from ''[[SoundHorizon Märchen]]'' isn't an "I am" song so much as it's a "Who am I?" song in which the eponymous character knows nothing of who he once was, only that he's woken up at the bottom of a well with a CreepyDoll in his arms and feels an intense desire to enact revenge and seeks to satisfy it by granting the chance at revenge to others.

* "Always True to You" from ''Kiss Me, Kate''.
