You Have To Be You

Lost and can’t be found
Are you forgotten?
Wonder if you’ll find your way
Or stay hiding.

Is it all that difficult to say what you feel?
Can you step out of the darkness and finally heal?

The empty feeling is long over due;
Feeling like there’s nothing left to do.

Time to move on,
Strong is the only option.
Mistakes will happen more than once
But that’s part of life.
If you don’t do it now, no one will.
At this moment you can’t stay still;
You have to be you.

Light shines upon your face;
This is a new feeling.
Not sure if the feeling of existence is wanted.
But it’s about time you stand up for what’s right;
You have that right.

Time to move on,
Strong is the only option.
Mistakes will happen more than once
But that’s part of life.
If you don’t do it now, no one will.
At this moment you can’t stay still;
You have to be you.

Every night before you go to bed,
Make sure that in your mind
You’re ahead of your dream.
Can’t look back when you’re in the present;
Only look to the future.

Time to move on,
Strong is the only option.
Mistakes will happen more than once
But that’s part of life.
If you don’t do it now, no one will.
At this moment you can’t stay still;
You have to be you,
You have to be you.
