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)
