Do you ever get the feeling
People think you're crazy
Cause you trust what they can't see.
Do you ever get the feeling
People think you're shallow
And you will change what you believe.
But I'm not here to argue
About what others think and feel.
Cause I'm not ashamed to tell anyone
What I know to be real.

I'm serious about the stand I'm taking
Serious about the choice I'm making
Serious about the things that I believe.
I'm serious about the talk I'm talking.
The evidence is in the walk I'm walking.
Serious about love and purity.
I'm serious as I can be.

I'm not the first to meet with laughter
And resistance from a disbelieving crowd.
But I got to meet it head on.
I'm just gonna keep on
Won't let it get me down.
I'm not here to give up
Jesus didn't give up on me.
Even when the going gets rough
I've promised God that I'll be


Won't change my mind
Got to close the door.
No time for goin' back
To what I had before.
I'm so tired of playin' all these games.
Cause the more I see what you mean to me
The more I want to say
