Shallow are the days
Life is beautiful-if you believe
I will eventually win and get to my place
Shallow are the days that pass through time
What we thought was important is not yours and no longer mine.
Words have torn us apart-some we can not forgive
This is no way to argue and this is no way to live
You must first believe in yourself,
Before you can believe in me.
And when you start to believe,
I hope then you can begin to breathe.
Raise others up, don’t stand back to watch them fall.
Be a little kinder, and make it better for them all.
There is no need to walk in shadows,
Shout out your name.
And when they can’t hear you-shout it out again.
Be confident that you are good enough, just the way you are.
And as the time passes by-teach that confidence to the world.
Shine bright for what is right,
Get to the top the right way.
And when you get to the top,
Others will ensure that is where you shall stay.
The world can be beautiful if you know how to see-
But before you can see anything you must first take time to believe.
I never wanted to be perfect,
I just wanted to be me.
And when I got to my place in this world-
I wanted someone to believe in me.
I thought I showed I loved you,
But now I’m not too sure,
Because if I showed I loved you,
Life wouldn't have been so cruel.
I will always be,
The girl who believed in you.
If we end tomorrow,
Will you fill the empty rooms?
I will eventually win, and get to my place.
And when I get there I will know I got there the right way.
I can’t pretend to be who you need.
I can’t pretend I am anything but who I am meant to be.
Time is of the essence and essence is growing strong
If you can’t learn my name, then find yourself a new song
