I guess I’ve always been a dreamer

Been searching for something more

When my hope was quickly dying

As my tears fell to the floor


I didn’t believe there was magic in the world

I saw it in only shades of black-and-white

Didn’t even look for redemption anymore

‘Til I remembered something someone told me late at night


She said 

‘Even when you’re out of tears

And there’s nothing left inside.

Even when you feel broken

When you can’t cry.

There is a reason for this day,

A reason for this life

If you just believe then you could fly’


I started seeing things I never saw before

The gorgeous color of the sky, a deep true blue

And so here I am, singing to you


See the leaves on the trees, birds in the sky

I’m telling you now, baby don’t you cry


I love that familiar scent

Of cedar and rain

How it felt to run around

And dance through the pain


Look at the shimmering sun,

The mysterious moon,

The many stars in the sky

Sunsets in mid-afternoon


Those warm July days

Those cold December nights

When the sun comes out

You can stop this fight


So please

Come join my song

The song of the redeemed
