Here in the dark, the shadows, they haunt me
Here in the shade, oh, the bright lights, they blind me
Yesterday is gone, time for moving on

Here's a brand new start, gonna base it on my heart
It's another day, I've got to find a better way
Won't you help me?

Failing that
If you have to go
It's all up to me, I know

I just wanna change my world but from the inside
I just wanna live my life
And make this place, make this time
For all our lives to be respected

Here in the cold light of day, this vision
Paints a different world, a world of the heart
And I want to live there

I've been on the run from all the people I've become
I want to shed this skin and start it all again
I want to draw a line in the sand for one last time
Will you help me?

Failing that
If you have to go
It's all up to me, I know

I just wanna change my world but from the inside
I just wanna live my life
With some hope and to do what's right

I just wanna change this world
And make this place, make this time
For all our lives to be respected

I just wanna change my world
(Change my world, ooh)
I just wanna live my life and to do what's right
(I just wanna live my life and to do what's right)

I just wanna change this world
(I just wanna change this world from the inside)
I just wanna live my life
(Just wanna live my life)
