As I look back over my life,
I begin to think about all my strife.
I thought about how it use to be,
When I was a child, a little baby.
I had no cares for food and drink,
Nor did I worry about what people think.
I would just go about with a song to sing,
Thinking of being a princess and marrying a king.
It all seemed so beautiful and so true,
But as I got older that's when I knew.
Life is not at all what I thought,
I had to face reality, I was caught.
Caught in what was known as make believe,
Trapped emotionless, I've been deceived.
Surrounded by sounds of thunder and rain,
Why can't I feel the sunshine or hear laughter to ease my pain?
I know there is a God, I pray everyday
But the enemy is always trying to make me go astray.
Why me Lord, why me?
Please help me get pass the clouds so I can see.
Open up the windows of heaven for your child,
Let me enjoy life, if only for a little while.
Put your arms around me and hold me tight,
Tell me God it will be alright,
Is that you God talking to me,
Yes, I hear you, can that really be?
You mean this will last only for a season,
That my time will come, I'll have a reason.
A reason to sing, shout and dance too,
That I'm your chosen and I must be a witness for you.
Okay, God, you're in charge and have your will,
Place your armour around me and this flesh you must kill.
I'll be your soldier and with faith I'll slaughter sin,
With you as my captain, my destiny is to win.
Sound the trumpets, for this battle I will endure,
And when the war is over, heaven bound am I for sure!
