For most of my life I feel I’ve lived in a shadow

Hiding there away from the bright sun light

Striving to shape myself after current trend or fashion

Refusing to acknowledge that I was dying inside

By filling my life up with more noise and static

I hoped to drown out the quite nudging I felt within

But like a traveler who lost somewhere in the darkness

I was left with no clue as to where or how to begin

I thought if I could be like that guy, then I too could be cool.

If I could just be that popular, I’d be the talk of the school

If I could just be like that guy, then every one would see

There is a real person who lives inside of me.

So I walked on in this shadow for days and days to come

I wandered back and forth finding myself further undone

I compromised myself to try harder to fit in

And still I found myself without a true friend

The more I tried to fit in the more I felt alone

The loneliness I felt was more than I ever have known

What I didn’t know is that there were other people, people just like me

Who were tired of trying to be what everyone else said to be

We thought if we could be like that girl, then we could be cool.

If we could be that popular, we’d be the talk of the school

If we could just be like that girl, then every one would see

That we all are people, who want to be seen.

Then one day I discovered, a treasure so worth the find

There was a way to be real, without the masks I hid behind

There was a Man named Jesus, who knows me just for me

He gave Himself to love me, so that I may be free.

Now I know that I want to be like Jesus, who cares what is cool

There is no need to be popular to share His love to my school

If I live my life like Jesus, then every one would see

That there is a God in heaven who died to set them free.

No more living in shadows, I have stepped into the Son

With this new found salvation I now that life has only begun.

Now I know that I want to be like Jesus, who cares what is cool

There is no need to be popular to share His love to my school

If I live my life like Jesus, then every one would see

That there is a God in heaven who died to set them free.
