Self-Belief ( you can be you )

Sense Your Own Strength
There Is No Authority But Yourself
You Alone Can Do It

I've seen so many dreams washed away in tears
Now, dry eyed, do i see any clearer ?

A man sat beneath a mighty oak tree reflecting upon his doubts
In spring the tree budded, the man reflected upon his confusions
In summer the tree gave shade to the man, he reflected upon his agonies
In autumn the man was showered with leaves

I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now

I shall see through this illusion

I was driven to the wall of lies hoping to find solace
There is no real love in this paradise of the senses
All is thrown away by the wall of lies

I shall see you through this illusion

If this morning is such a sad song, sing on
Such an old song, don't mind, sing on

Keep on, don't mind, sing on
If you open your heart just a little you can whisper
New song

Whilst walking i have often passed you, now our walking is our oneness
You are not alone, lost in your own dreams and desires
Alone we are together, together we are as one

Walk in silence, don't walk away in silence
See the danger, always danger
Life rebuilding, don't walk away

Who's gonna tell you when it's too late ?
Who's gonna tell you when things aren't so great ?
Who's gonna hold you down when you shake ?
Who's gonna come around when you break ?

Who's gonna drive you home tonight ?
Who's gonna pick you up when you fall ?
Who's gonna pay attention to your dreams ?
You can't go on thinking nothing's wrong

What holds your hope together ?, make sure it's strong enough
When you reach the end of your tether it's because it wasn't strong enough
When you're on the bottom you crawl back to the top
Something pulls you up and a voice says you can't stop
It won't let you stop

I was going to drown then i started swimming
I was going down then i started winning

Every day you must say to yourself, how do i feel about my life ?
Anything is hard to find if you will not open your eyes
Sitting there in your room
Oh !, how you'd like to get carried away
But dreams have a knack of just not coming true
Sitting in your room, drawing up your plans
Time is running out
For heavens sake when will you accept yourself ?

There's something inside so strong, i know that i can make it
Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride had gone, oh no !, there's something inside so strong

You can deny me, you can turn your face away
No matter, 'cos my light will shine so brightly it will blind you

The higher you build your barriers, the taller i become
The further you take my rights away, the faster i will run
The more you refuse to hear my voice, the louder i will sing
You hide behind walls of jericho, your lies will come tumbling

Brothers and sisters when they insist we're not good enough
Well we know better, just look them in the eyes and say
We're gonna do it anyway

Stand strong, stand proud, chant your feelings loud
Stand strong, stand proud, don't accept the crowd
Stand strong, stand proud, we'll rise and they shall fall
Stand strong, stand proud, one day we'll show them all

In a world that keeps on pushing me around
I'll keep this world from dragging me down
I know what's right, I've got just one life
I'll stand my ground, I won't be turned around

I won't back down

How many sorrows do you try to hide in a world of illusion that covers your mind ?
I'll show you something good if you open your mind
You'll discover that there's something you long to find
When your crumbling world falls apart, if you open your heart
You can make a start

Your confusion is the box in which you put answers
Your limitations are the walls of the box
Destroy the box

A day without substance
An atmosphere that rots with time

Confusion in her eyes that says it all
And she's clinging to the nearest passer-by
She's lost control
And she gave away the secrets of her past
And of a voice that told her when and where to act
And she said, she's lost control

She turned around and took me by the hand
She expressed herself in many different ways
Until she lost control again

She showed up all the errors and mistakes
Walked upon the edge of no escape
She screamed out kicking on the floor, i thought she'd died
She'd lost control

The pain has got to stop, it's eating into you
Your apathy upholds this misery
Nobody can reach you through your personal hell
You'll just eat yourself away in your tortured shell

Shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to
Coyness can stop you from saying all the things in life you'd like to
So if there's something you'd like to try
Ask me i won't say no, how could i ?

Spending warm summer days indoors
Ask me, ask me, ask me
Because if it's not love, then it's the bomb that will bring us together

Take a chance
Step outside

There's no time to lose
Catch your dreams
Before they slip away

Something's missing, you've got to look back on your life
You know something's just not right
There's something that you forgot

What about love ?, don't you want someone to care about you ?
What about love ?, don't let it slip away
What about love ?, i only want to share it with you

You might need it someday

Is it wrong to want to live on your own ?
No it's not wrong, but i must know
How can someone so young sing words so sad ?

Don't go home tonight, come out
And find the one that you love and who loves you

I know that you've got your reasons
But these things that are pleasing you
Can hurt you someday

It seems to me that some fine things have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Well you ain't getting no younger
And your prison is walking through this world all alone
Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime ?, the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day

Why don't you come down from your fences ?
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late

Enjoy yourself
It's later than you think

You've gotta find some therapy, treatment takes too long
Gotta find your destiny, before it gets too late

If you come across a sad soul
Don't be afraid
Take them into your arms
Love them better

In my life why do i give valuable time
To people who don't care if i live or die ?

There are no lights to guide your path, only your love
If you show your love there are no questions
You stand apart from your confusions
Your achievements and spent realities

I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
I'll stand my ground, won't be turned around
I'll keep this world from dragging me down
I know what's right, i've got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushing me down
I won't back down

I just can't live with the myths and the lies
Two ways to choose on a razor's edge
Had thoughts for one, designs for both

Confusion, illusion, worn like a mask of self-hate
Something must break now, this life isn't mine

This is the day your life will surely change
This is the day when things fall into place

For Life, Love, Peace, Justice and Truth.
