On My Way Here

I took my first step

On that black and white kitchen floor

I sometimes wonder if that house

Is even there, anymore

I had my first glimpse of love

When I was five

I watched two people split apart

But still the three of us survived

I’ve seen the best

I’ve seen the worst

I wouldn’t change what I’ve been through

I’ve touched the sky

I’ve hit the wall

But I did what I had to

Ooooohhhh

CHORUS:

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I’ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here.

Oh yeah yeaaah

My address has changed

Almost every year

I've found that standing still

Can quickly make a lifetime disappear

I'd rather try and fail

A thousand times denied

And this, whenever you feel pain

It lets you know that you’re alive

I’ve been a fool

I’ve been afraid

Yeah, I’ve been loved

I've been lied to

I've been wrong

And I've been right

I stood up when I had to

Yeah Yeahhhh

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I’ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here.

No guarantees

I believed that I would find

An open door or a light

To lead me to the other side

I guess that is why

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I‘ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here

Yeahhhh

Oooooohh

"The Real Me"

Natalie Grant Lyrics - To be changed when we hear the re-written 'Clay Aiken' version

"The Real Me" was written by Natalie Grant, who comes from the Christian world but is popular at AC. Her songs tend to explore life's challenges and offer a positive spin.

We first looked at that song as one of four originals on the last album. The thing I love so much about "The Real Me" is that when I listened to it, I thought, "It's about God." Jaymes heard a romantic song. Other people think it's about their mom. Everyone is able to take their own message. Natalie was kind enough to change a little bit of the lyric so that it fits my life even better.

Foolish heart looks like we're here again

Same old game of plastic smile

Don't let anybody in

Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break

How much will they take before I'm empty

Do I let it show, does anybody know?

[Chorus:]

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask

Self-inflicted circus clown

I'm tired of the song and dance

Living a charade, always on parade

What a mess I've made of my existence

But you love me even now

And still I see somehow

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

Wonderful, beautiful is what you see

When you look at me

You're turning the tattered fabric of my life into

A perfect tapestry

I just wanna be me

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Unveil me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to mask my frailty

Cause you see the real me

And you love me just as I am

Wonderful, beautiful is what you see

When you look at me

GRACE OF GOD

(Don Mescall & Mads Hauge)

Some folks always get the rough ride

Seem they end up on the wrong side

Constant battle just to survive on any given day

I watched a mother on my TV

Hungry children that she can’t feed

Still I’ve got everything that I need

And that just don’t seem right

That I sleep safe tonight

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Mother Earth is down on her knees

Poison rivers run to dead seas

Cities eating up the green fields

We never question why

How truth turns into lies

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Sometimes it’s hard to believe

In a truth that you can’t even see

But faith holds the hope for the world

And I know, I know

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

When I’m thinking it’s a bad day

Feels like nothing’s going my way

I pass a wreck out on the freeway

And I pray that they survived

There but for the grace of God go I

"Something About Us"

Stop the music, play the song

We'll dance together all night long

The spotlight glows, somehow it knows,

That there's something about us

Something about us

People smile when we walk by

There's too much magic through the night

A fool can see, we're meant to be

'cause there's something about us,

something about us

The words on every poet's tongue

Every love song ever sung

about us, it's about us

And Romeo and Juliet,

the plays they haven't written yet

It's old and new, it's a classic tale of two

in our perfectly perfect love

You can see it in our way

in how we spend our nights and days

A crazy life, a photograph

There's just something about

something about us

The words on every poet's tongue

Every love song ever sung

about us, it's about us

And Romeo and Juliet,

the plays they haven't written yet

It's old and new, it's a classic tale of two

in our perfectly perfect love

So stop the music, play the song

And we'll dance together all night long

We'll reminisce of moments like this

Cause there's something about us

something about us

yes, there something about us....

I saved these, but didn't save the information on where I got them. Sorry.

Where I Draw the Line

It’s all as it should be

You’re the best thing that ever happened to me

I melt every time we kiss

Never felt anything like this

It’s almost too perfect

Just like the thunder brings the rain

Something beautiful brings on the pain

Looks like it’s gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don’t know how

I’ve been here one too many times

Seems like whenever I let somebody get this close

I’m right back where I got hurt the most

That’s why

That’s why

Around my heart is where I draw the line

I wish I could just forget

Not have one more regret behind me to remind me

Of what I’ve given up

Could I ever live with this

Knowing that I might have missed

My last chance for love to find me

I could stay here drowning in the rain

Unless you have the strength to save me

Nothing’s gonna change

And it’s gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don’t know how

I’ve been here one too many times

Seems like whenever I let somebody get this close

I’m right back where I got hurt the most

That’s why

That’s why

Around my heart is where I draw the line

Whether you’re gonna rescue me

Or you’re gonna be the death of me

It’s gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don’t know how

I’ve been here one too many times

Whenever I let somebody get this close

I’m right back where I got hurt the most

And that’s why

That’s why

Around my heart is where I draw the line

Around my heart is where I draw the line

As Long As We're Here

why do we have to fight

why can't we spend our time trying

I wanna be close to you

Keep love from slipping through... my hands

The words said in anger aimed at someone

Are hard to take back once the damage is done

Let's stop now....

As long as we're here... alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you... for all that it's worth

And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of of our time

As long as we're here... (yeah...)

Some people live their lives

Holding their fears... inside them

Afraid to build windows

To let the light of the world in...

They hide in the darkness of self-imposed walls

If they could just tear them down... they'd have it all

As long as we're here... alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth

And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of our time

As long as we're here...

When you're with me

i breath easy

you are my need

right now love me

As long as we're here alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you

And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

As long as we're here... alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth

And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of of our time

I'll make the most of our time

As long as we're here...

As long as we're here...

Forget I Ever Knew You

words and music by Greg Critchley

I lie awake while the rest of the world sleeps happily

I’m tossing and turning in the dark

I try to make some sense of the mess that calls itself my life

Just wish I knew where I should start

I’d go back in time if I could

and erase you from my mind for good

I get so tired of trying

Maybe I should just…

Fly away let my heart pretend

My dream comes true and the story ends

I get on my feet and start again

And forget I ever knew you

I leave the past and rise above

I let you go and fall in love

With everything that I’m made of

Say goodbye to all I’ve been through

And forget I ever knew you

I turn the page I’ve got nothing to say but I’ll start writing anyway

Something that gets me moving on again

Stuck in this place I’m putting one foot in front of the other foot

Maybe today I’ll let this be over and done again

I’d make up my mind if I could

And leave this all behind me for good

I’m getting tired of trying

So maybe I should just…

Fly away let my heart pretend

My dream comes true and the story ends

I get on my feet and start again

And forget I ever knew you

I leave the past and rise above

I let you go and fall in love

With everything that I’m made of

Say goodbye to all I’ve been through

And forget I ever knew you

The sun can shine a little brighter now

I’m gonna make it on my own somehow

And I will start feeling alive again, yeah

I’ll start living life with no regrets

‘Cause the best hasn’t happened yet

I’m just fine with you out of my life

I’ll just, fly away let my heart pretend

My dream comes true and the story ends

I get on my feet and start again

And forget I ever knew you

I leave the past and rise above

I let you go and fall in love

With everything that I’m made of

Say goodbye to all I’ve been through

And forget I ever knew you

And forget I ever knew you

I never knew you

Say goodbye to all I’ve been through

And forget I ever knew you

This is what I'm hearing:

On My Way Here

I took my first step

On the black and white kitchen floor

I sometimes wonder if that house

Is even there, anymore

I had my first glimpse of love

When I was five

I watched two people split apart

But still the three of us survived

I’ve seen the best

I’ve seen the worst

I wouldn’t change what I’ve been through

I’ve touched the sky

I’ve hit the wall

But I did what I had tooooooooooo

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I’ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here

My address changed

Almost every year

I've found that standing still

Can quickly make a lifetime disappear

I'd rather try and fail

A thousand times denied

And this, whenever you feel pain

It lets you know that you’re alive

I’ve been a fool

I’ve been afraid

I’ve been loved, I've been lied to

I've been wrong

And I've been right

I stood up when I had tooooooooooo

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I’ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here

No guarantees

I believed that I would find

An open door or a light

To lead me to the other side

I guess that is why

On my way here

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I‘ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

Where I am now

I’ve learned to fly

I have to want to leave the ground

I’ve fallen hard

But I‘ve been loved

And in the end it all works out

My faith has conquered fear

On my way here

Ashes

Someone

Told me

What doesn’t kill you only

Makes you stronger

Sets you free

From all that held you down

With all my heart

I believed

The inner burning

Was a dream deep in me

Then everything went up in flames

I still walked away

Turn around and see what love’s done for me

You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold

Maybe love requires

Walking through the fire

To set me free

So I could rise up from the ashes

I was

broken

A million pieces left to hold

I was

frozen

My heart left out in the cold

Looking back I can see

How the voice of reason

Kept reminding me

I was never good enough somehow

Try and remind me now

Turn around and see what love’s done for me

You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold

Maybe love requires

Walking through the fire

To set me free

So I could rise up from the ashes

Send it up in flames

Let it light the sky

Now that I’m OK

I’m alive

Turn around and see what love’s done for me

You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold

Maybe love requires

Walking through the fire

To set me free

So I could rise up from the ashes

The ashes

Rise up from the ashes

Everything I Don't Need

Get out of my dreams

There’s no room left

Get out of my bed

We did goodbye yesterday

Don’t you think I heard what you said?

You want too much

You play too hard

Well, well

In bed I’m gonna lie again (?)

Don’t wanna answer the phone

I went to sleep last night angry

I’m sure I was alone

You know me well

Always ring my bell

And tell me

What would I want from you?

‘Cause you try so hard

To get who you are

But there’s no way

I understand what you do

Last of a dying breed (?)

‘Cause you’ve come this far

But it’s got has to stop

You’re everything

Everything I don’t need

(Get out of my dream

Get out of my bed

Get out of my room

Get out of my head)

I don’t wanna listen to the answer

To the question I didn’t ask

It’s all about you

I wanna move out

Before the breakdown starts

It’s so long

Won’t you let me go

And tell me

What would I want from you?

‘Cause you tried so hard

To be who you are

But there’s no way

I understand what you do

The last of a dying breed

Well we’ve come this far

But it’s got has to stop

You’re everything

Everything I don’t need

You fuel my head (?)

You’ve lost my view (?)

You’re killing me

You’re everything I don’t need

Every fault I do (?)

I get free ‘cause of you

Taking everything

Everything I don’t need

What would I want from you?

‘Cause you try so hard

To get who you are

But there’s no way

I understand what you do

Last of a dying breed

Well it’s come this far

But it’s got has to stop

You’re everything

Everything I don’t need

Last of a dying breed

Something About Us

Stop the music, play the song

We’ll dance together all night long

Spotlight glows, somehow it knows

That there’s something about us

Something about us

People smile when they walk by

There’s too much magic to deny

A fool could see we’re meant to be

There’s something about us

Something about us

The words on every poet’s tongue

Every love song ever sung

Is about us, it’s about us

Romeo and Juliet

Plays they haven’t written yet

It’s old and new

A classic tale for two

And a perfectly perfect love

You can see it in our ways

And how we spend our nights and days

Crazy laughs, a photograph

There’s just something about us

Something about us

The words on every poet’s tongue

Every love song ever sung

Is about us, it’s about us

And Romeo and Juliet

Plays they haven’t written yet

It’s old and new

It’s a classic tale for two

And a perfectly perfect love

Stop the music, play the song

And we’ll dance together all night long

We’ll reminisce of moments like this

There’s something about us

Yes, there’s something about us

There’s something about us

Falling

Silence, long lost friends

You come to me again

Night comes, closing in

And the loneliness within

Older, should be wiser

Still I never seem to learn

Closer than ever to the end

And I’m falling

I am falling

From the world I used to know

Been trying to hold on to something for so long

Now this never ending dream won’t let go

I am falling

Restless, I lie awake

And trying to escape

Memories that never sleep

I taste the bittersweet

Hold on to forever

Still I’m stuck on yesterday

Closer that ever to the end

And I’m falling

I am falling

From the world I used to know

Been trying to hold on to something for so long

Now this never ending dream won’t let go

Come back and wake me up again

I can’t face the world alone

In my dream I return and then

I am falling, I am falling

I am falling

I am falling

From the world I used to know

Been trying to hold on to something for so long

Now this never ending dream won’t let go

I am falling

I am falling

From the world I used to know

Been trying to hold on to something for so long

Now this never ending dream won’t let go

I am falling

I am falling

Where I Draw the Line

It's all as it should be

You're the best thing that ever happened to me

I melt every time we kiss

I've never felt anything like this

it's almost too perfect

Call it a curse or call it fate

something beautiful brings on the pain

Looks like it's gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don't know how

I've been here one too many times

Seems like whenever I let somebody get this close

I'm right back where I got hurt the most

That's why, that's why

Around my heart

Is where I draw the line

Wish I could just forget

And not have one more regret behind me

To remind me

What I've given up

Could I ever live with this

Knowing that I might have missed my last chance

For love to find me

I could stay here drowning in the rain

Unless you have the strength to save me

Nothing’s gonna change

And it's gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don't know how

I've been here one too many times

Seems like whenever I let somebody get this close

I'm right back where I got hurt the most

That's why, that's why

Around my heart

Is where I draw the line

Either you’re gonna rescue me

Or you’re gonna be the death of me

Gonna be the same this time around

I wanna let you in but I don't know how

I've been here one too many times

Whenever I let somebody get this close

I'm right back where I got hurt the most

That's why, that's why

Around my heart

Is where I draw the line

Around my heart

Is where I draw the line

The Real Me

Foolish heart, looks like we're here again

Same old game of plastic smile, don't let anybody in

Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break

How much will they take before I'm empty

Do I let it show, does anybody know?

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

No need to hold back my frailty

‘Cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind the mask

Self-inflicted circus clown

I'm tired of the song and dance

Living a charade, always on parade

What a mess I've made of my existence

But you love me even now

And still I see somehow

That you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

No need to hold back my frailty

Oh, ‘cause you see the real me

Shadows of shattered dreams

They followed me, they haunted me

To take in the broken pieces of my life and held me to believe

‘Cause you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

No need to hold back my frailty

Oh ‘cause you see the real me

Weight of the World

Has anybody else but me ever felt this way before?

Like the world is spinning much too fast

And you’re falling through the floor

Struck by lightning, feels so frightening

When the morning feels like war (?)

Unbreakable, unbreakable

So when you fall down, down, down

Don’t get down on you,

Don’t you know that everybody gets

Down, down, down

Why you’re trying to

Carry the weight of the world

Some folks say that we’ve been blessed

And I know deep down they’re right

But when you’re feeling cold, alone and desperate

And can’t get through the night

It seems the only time you test your wings

you’re crashing through the sky

Unbreakable, unbreakable

So when you fall down, down, down

Don’t get down on you,

Don’t you know that everybody gets

Down, down, down

Why you’re trying to

Carry the weight of the world

Has anybody else but me ever felt this way before?

So when you fall down, down, down

Don’t get down on you,

Don’t you know that everybody gets

Down, down, down

Why are you trying to

Carry the weight of the world

Oh get down on you

Don’t you know that everybody gets

Down, down, down

Why are you trying to

Carry the weight of the world

It’s hard to see from where you are right now

I know it’s hard to breathe

Just let the world go round

And round, round, round

I’m not trying to

Carry the weight of the world

As Long as We're Here

Why did we have to fight?

Why can’t we spend our time trying?

I wanna to be close to you

Keep love from slipping through my hands

Words said in anger aimed at someone

Are hard to take back once the damage is done

Let’s stop now

As long as we’re here

Alive on this earth

I’m gonna love you for all that it’s worth

And one of these days

We’re gonna understand why

Let’s make the most of our time

As long as we’re here

Some people live their lives

Holding their fears inside them

Afraid to build windows

To let the light of the world in

They hide in the darkness

In self-imposed walls

If they could just tear them down

They’d have it all

As long as we’re here

Alive on this earth

I’m gonna love you for all that it’s worth

And one of these days

We’re gonna understand why

Let’s make the most of our time

As long as we’re here

When you’re with me

I believe it

You are my need right now of me (?)

As long as we, as long as we’re here

I’m gonna love you

And one of these days

We’re gonna understand why

As long as we’re here

Alive on this earth

I’m gonna love you for all that it’s worth

And one of these days

We’re gonna understand why

Let’s make the most of our time

As long as we’re here

Sacrificial Love

Sometimes I feel like I’m chasing the shadows in your eyes

Losing my footing and looking for something that I recognize

Tell me you’re here for forever

but act like you’re passing through

Which one’s the real you?

Which one’s the real you?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself in that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

I know when we started

I kinda talked you into this

I was good for the moment

But now something’s missing

from your kiss

I see you lying beside me

But I feel you’re moving on

Which one’s the real you?

Which one’s the real you?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself in that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

Do I have to spill my tears?

Teach you how to say goodbye?

If that’s not what I am to you

What am I?

What am I?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself in that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

Just your sacrificial love

Grace of God

Some folks always get the rough ride

Seem to end up on the wrong side

Constant battle just to survive

on any given day

I watched a mother on my TV

Hungry children that she can't feed

Still I've got everything that I need

And that just don't seem right

That I sleep safe tonight

There's got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify

all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Every day makes the headlines

Someone struggling for their life

Feels like I’m watching from the sidelines

Will nothing ever change?

Just the truth got rearranged

There's got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Sometimes it's hard to believe

In a truth that you can't even see

But faith holds the hope for the world

And I know, I know

There's got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

When I'm thinking it's a bad day

Feels like nothing's going my way

I pass a wreck out on the freeway

And I pray that they survived

There but for the grace of God go I

(Please let me know if you see needed corrections.)

As Long As We're Here

why do we have to fight

why can't we spend our time trying

I wanna be close to you

Keep love from slipping through my hands

words said in anger

aimed at someone

Are hard to take back once the damage is done

Let's stop now

As long as we're here alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth

And one of these days we're gonna understand why

Let's make the most of our time

Some people live their lives

Holding their fears inside them

Afraid to build windows

To let the light of the world in

They hide in the darkness of self-imposed walls

If they could just tear them down they'd have it all

As long as we're here alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth

And one of these days we're gonna understand why

Let's make the most of our time

As long as we're here

When you're with me

I breathe easy

you are my need

right now love me

As long as we're

As long as we’re here

I'm gonna love you

And one of these days we're gonna understand why

As long as we're here alive on this earth

I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth

And one of these days we're gonna understand why

Let's make the most of of our time

Oh, I'll make the most of our time

As long as we're here

As long as we're here

Forget I ever knew you

I lie awake while the rest of the world sleeps happily

I'm tossing and turning in the dark

I try to make some sense of the mess that calls itself my life

Just wish I knew where I should start

I'd go back in time if I could

erase you from my mind for good

I get so tired of trying

Maybe I should just

Walk away and let my heart pretend

the dreams come true when the story ends

I get on my feet and start again

say goodby to all I’ve been through

And forget I ever knew you

I turn the page I've got nothing to say but I'll start writing anyway

Something that gets me moving on again

Stuck in this place putting one foot in front of the other foot

Maybe today I'll let this be over and done

I'd make up my mind if I could

And leave this all behind me for good

I'm getting tired of trying

Maybe I should just

Walk away and let my heart pretend

the dream comes true when the story ends

I get on my feet and start again

And forget I ever knew you

I leave the past and rise above

I let you go and fall in love

With everything that I'm made of

Say goodbye to all I've been through

And forget I ever knew you

I'll start living life with no regrets

'Cause the best hasn't happened yet

I'm just fine with you out of my liiiiiiiife

Walk away let my heart pretend

the dreams come true when your story ends

I get on my feet and start again

And forget I ever knew you

I leave the past and rise above

I let you go and fall in love

With everything that I'm made of

Say goodbye to all I've been through

And forget I ever knew you

I never knew you

Say goodbye to all I've been through

And forget I ever knew you

GRACE OF GOD

(Don Mescall & Mads Hauge)

Some folks always get the rough ride

Seem to end up on the wrong side

Constant battle just to survive

on any given day

I watched a mother on my TV

Hungry children that she can’t feed

Still I’ve got everything that I need

And that just don’t seem right

That I sleep safe tonight

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

Wish I could find some way that we could justify

all this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Everyday it makes the headlines

Someone’s struggling for their lives

Feels like I’m watching from the sidelines

where nothing ever changed

just the truth got rearranged

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

Wish I could find some way that we could justify

all this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

Sometimes it’s hard to believe

In a truth that you can’t even see

But faith holds the hope for the world

And I know, I know

There’s got to be some rhyme or reason why

We turn away and we close our eyes

Wish I could find some way that we could justify

all this suffering

There but for the grace of God go I

So when I’m thinking it’s a bad day

Feels like nothing’s going my way

I pass a wreck out on the freeway

And I pray that they survived

There but for the grace of God go I

It's in Every One of Us

Cliff Richard

 

It's in every one of us to be wise

Find your heart

Open up both your eyes

We can all know every thing

Without ever knowing why

It's in every one of us

by and by

It's in every one of us

I just remembered

It's like I've been sleeping for years

I'm not aware as I can be

But my seeing's better

I can see

through the tears

I've been realizing that

I bought this ticket

And watching only half of the show

But there's scenery and lights

And a cast of thousands

Who all know what I know

And it's good that it's so

It's in every one of us to be wise

Find your heart

Open up both your eyes

We can all know every thing

Without ever knowing why

It's in every one of us by and byyyyyyy

It's in every one of us

by and by

Sacrificial Love

Sometimes I feel like I’m chasing the shadows in your eyes

Losing my footing and looking for something that I recognize

You tell me you’re here for forever

but act like you’re passing through

Which one’s the real you?

Which one’s the real you?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself in that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

I know when we started

I kinda talked you into this

I was good for the moment

But now something’s missing

from your kiss

I see you lying beside me

But I feel you’re moving on

Which one’s the real you?

Which one’s the real you?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

Do I have to spill my tears?

Teach you how to say goodbye?

If that’s not what I am to you

What am I?

What am I?

Are you only practicing until you find the real thing?

Taking up space until you find yourself in that perfect face?

Are you looking over my shoulder?

Am I enough or just

Your sacrificial love?

Just your sacrificial love

The Real Me

Foolish heart looks like we're here again

Same old game of plastic smile

Don't let anybody in

Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break

How much will they take before I'm empty

Do I let it show, does anybody know?

[Chorus:]

But you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to hold back my frailty

Cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask

Self-inflicted circus clown

I'm tired of the song and dance

Living a charade, always on parade

What a mess I've made of my existence

But you love me even now

And still I see somehow

That you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

Reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

No need to hold back my frailty

O-o-oh, Cause you see the real me

Shadows of shattered dreams

They followed me

They’ve haunted me

But you‘ve taken the broken pieces of my life

and helped me to believe

Cause you see the real me

Hiding in my skin, broken from within

reveal me completely

I'm loosening my grasp

There's no need to hold back my frailty

O-o-o-oh,

Cause you see the real me
