Here in the dark, the shadows, they haunt me,
Here in the shade, oh the bright lights, they blind me

Yesterday is gone, time for moving on,
Here's a brand new start, gonna base it on my heart,
It's another day, I've got to find a better way,
Won't you help me?

Failing that,
If you have to go,
It's all up to me, I know

I just wanna change my world,
But from the inside,
I just wanna live my life,
And make this place, make this time,
For all our lives to be,
Respected

Here in the cold, light of day, this vision,
Paints a different world, a world of the heart,
And I'd like to live there

I've been on the run, from all the people I've become,
I want to shed this skin, and start it all again,
I want to draw a line, in the sand for one last time,
Will you help me?

Failing that,
If you have to go,
It's all up to me I know

I just wanna change my world,
But from the inside,
I just wanna live my life,
With some hope, and to do what's right,
I just wanna change this world,
And make this place, make this time,
For all our lives to be,
Respected
