As time went on, I opened up my eyes
You never really knew me
You don't know what's deep inside

Just so you know, I'll never be like you
I'll take what God has made me
I'm not an empty shell

I hope they see

Instead of following
I'm finally awake
I feel alive today
I feel everything
It's all so clear to me
I'm finally awake
I feel alive today
I feel everything
It's all so clear to me

How many times have I hated who I was
Lost sight of what defines me
'Cause of airbrushed magazines?

But now I've come to cherish who I am
I'm sick and tired of faking a life that wasn't mine

I'm alive
It's all so clear to me
I'm alive, I'm alive
It's all so clear to me
And I hope they see

    i think that these lyrics mean that you need to be yourself, not what others want you to be. i believe that this is a story about someone who used to be what everyone else wanted them to be. you need to be who YOU want to be, not what you are 'said' to be by everyone else. live a righteous life that YOU have set out for yourself. hang on to your differences, because they are what makes YOU YOU!
    God Bless All
