Michael Sweet – Real lyrics

I've walked on water
And I've turned the rivers red
I've touched a child who died
And raised her from her dying bed
I've sacrificed myself
For you My blood was shed
And I am so much more
Than simple words within the creed that you've read
I'm real, I'm alive, I'm not a reverie
I want to be real to you
I've calmed the winds and waves
I've opened up the sea
I've wandered forty days and nights
Without a single thing to eat
I've taken beatings
And upon a tree I've bled
Yet I am so much more
Than simple lines within the creed that you read
I'm real, I'm alive, I'm not a reverie
I want to be real to you
You don't have to hide in shame from me
I just want to set you free
