I've been talking to myself, but I don't believe me
Wakin' up to nothing new
Except the ceiling, now, keeps gettin' closer somehow
People keep on sayin' that I've got potential
Lately I haven't been feelin' all that special
Now, I'm gonna turn it around

Everybody has a moment when they wake up
Everybody has a mornin' when they've had enough,
Everybody gets to decide what they are gonna believe in

This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
And now I see my face like it was the first time
I don't know what's changed, but now it feels like mine
'Cause I've drawn, 'cause I've drawn (a line in the sand)
I've drawn a line in the sand

I've been wearin' out my shoes draggin' down the sidewalks,
Spendin' afternoons sleepin' at the bus stop
Now, the hours pass like rain clouds
People keep on sayin' that I'm goin' somewhere
Tried to buy a map to show me how to get there, now
But they said they'd run out

Everybody, put your backs up against the wall
Everybody, this won't take any time at all
Everybody, may I have your attention please?

This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
And now I see my face like it was the first time
I don't know what's changed, but now it feels like mine
'Cause I've drawn, 'cause I've drawn (a line in the sand)
I've drawn a line in the sand

This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
And now I see my face like it was the first time
I don't know what's changed, but now it feels like mine
'Cause I've drawn, 'cause I've drawn (a line in the sand)
I couldn't cross it, now I can (line in the sand, line in the sand)

This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
This is how I feel, this is where I stand, this is what I can do, and this is who I am
This is how I feel, this is where I stand... [fade]
