Sarah McLachlan – What's It Gonna Take lyrics

Since I was a girl I dreamed of a different life
Far away in the lights
But now I'm here staring into the face of the unknown
And who was I to think I could fool them

When I don't even know who I am
What's it gonna take to make me worthy
What's it gonna take to make me strong
I don't have much to give, I've only just begun to live

So how do I become somebody new
How do I begin to make this happen
How will I believe and see this through
When I feel so unready and I feel so alone

Back on solid ground my head is spinning ‘round
My heart is in two different worlds
But I'm still here wondering where I fit into the madness

I thought when I was home I'd see clearly
But there's so much I don't understand

What's it gonna take to lift the darkness
What's it gonna take to light my way
I have so much to give I've only just begun to live

So how do I begin my life anew
How do I begin to make this happen
How do I believe and see this through
Cause I feel like I'm ready but I still feel unsure
