I grew up in silence
From silence I became my history
They fed me fear and violence
They hooked me up to this reality
Now I'm not cursing anyone
They only did what they had done to them
But if you want to know where I am now
Then just breathe in and let it out

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth

When I laid down my burden
The one where I had something I should prove
Then I found my power
The one where I'm the mountain I could move

So if you want to know where I am now
Then just breathe in and let it out

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth

Don't you know that you are golden
Don't you know that you are pure delight baby
It doesn't matter what they painted on you
You can wash it all away tonight

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth
