All the things I wanted to be

When I was growing up, the things I hoped I could do

And everything that I wished I could see

Is all coming true, my dreams are the end result

I've been happier than I've ever been before

Been doing things that I never thought I'd do

And in the end I am everything I thought I'd never be

For so long I've been living a lie

For so long this mask has been to hide the truth

Too insecure to be myself and so I

Put up a wall to shut out my life

But all of that is changing now

Because I found that this mask has become a part of me

God forgive me for the sins I've commited

The years of the tears spent asking why

God forgive me for all the things I've done

Because I'm starting over, I am born anew

And now my lifes beginning, I can finally see the truth

I never used to think that people cared

I spent my life asking why and hanging my head as I walked

Using sarcastic wit to defend every attack done

And so I lacked, the confidence needed to be who I am

So close I was, to the end of my road, so blind to the fact that

People don't care as much as I thought they did

About the way I act, or what I've been holding back

They don't see as much as I thought they would

My life has been changed so drastically

And now I know that I don't have to change

Because now I'm everything I've wanted to be

And could never see

God forgive me for the sins I've committed

Jesus save me on my road ahead

God forgive me for all of the things I've done

Because now is the time for my light to shine

Jesus be with me to guide my hand

And help me as I help myself through life

All of my life I've felt tension building up, the slack disappearing

Never knowing what it really was, good faith gone to dust

A breaking point for bad or good, and stuck in the middle I was failing

All I knew is that it was coming for me

I couldn't see the road ahead

For all the darkness in sight in front and behind

So alone and so hated I thought I was

And so afraid that nobody cared, nobody could love

the way that I was, and in the end, I was running

From all of my problems, waiting until I was old enough to buy that...

God forgive me for the sins that I've done

Jesus help me on the road ahead

Because now I'm on the track you've wanted me on for so long

Because lord, you've shown to me...

That miracles can happen, even to me, so you see

I finally know that you're there, that you care
