Tryin to love someone that aint lovein you

tryin to stay faithful while whishin they'd be true

Tyrin to erase the pain and the sorrow

tryin to look on for a better day tomorrow

Tryin to hide the endless tears

tryin to forget all those hard long years

Tryin to turn the darkness into day

tryin to escape when there is no way

Afraid to stand up and the truth and be bold

Afraid of the other lies that could possibly be told

Afraid to walk out and be in the light

Afraid that you might be cast out, back into the night

Afraid it could be true, you'd be happy at last

Afraid you just mgiht be able to erase your dark past

Afraid of the trouble you might cause once you're free

Afraid of the person you might turn out to be

It's time that you rise, be bold

and let your light shine

leave everything in the

past that is dark behind

Stand up be stong

be bold and true

You're not living your life

for someone else

you're living it for you
