One asked me if I wanted this more than anything
this is where I’m meant to be
The Embers in this sound are proof
they start warming up to you; time to embrace my own truth

if every moment I spent asking myself why
The silence invites a reply

For Real
I Just I want to show you

Since I was born these lungs were screaming
with a sound that erupted; breathing wasn’t enough IF
you hear me, singing my own song
It’s because my own tunes, the one that I was meant to use
If every moment I spent singing the world’s song
I’d never know my very own voice could carry on

For Real
I Just I want to show you

There ain’t no way this voice is giving out
There ain’t no way I could live in doubt
My greatest song is the one that carries on
Since I’m alive, it’s in my right until I’m gone

For Real
I Just I want to show you
