Find Yourself

I watch from a distance,

As you shed the shell that has surrounded you,

For so long.

You fly around the Earth now,

Free as a bird, delicate as a butterfly,

All because you found yourself.


You once were lost,

Wandering around,

Influenced by people who took joy in watching you struggle.

They laughed piteously as you tried to break free,

Tempting you, wrapping you 'round their fingers,

You followed them wordlessly for far too long,

And gave up dreams of bright, glimmering day.


I watch from a distance,

As you shed the shell that has surrounded you,

For so long.

You fly around the Earth now,

Free as a bird, delicate as a butterfly,

All because you found yourself.


I was there for you,

When the world caved in.

I held out a hand and clung desperately,

Saving you from the shadow demons.

I helped you stand strong,

Gently nudging you towards dreams and hopes,

Ones that were long forgotten.

I watched you struggle,

Knowing horribly that there was no way I could help,

For you had to save yourself.


I watch from a distance,

As you shed the shell that has surrounded you,

For so long.

You fly around the Earth now,

Free as a bird, delicate as a butterfly,

All because you found yourself.


Finally you can stand on your own,

Tears of joy fall from my eyes,

For you are finally free,

Your dreams have come true,

And now you move on.


Your faith has returned,

Your life redeemed.

Strength and confidence flow through you,

Giving you the willpower to cling to life.

You left the nightmares behind,

And now zestful smiles claim your face,

Your life is finally worth living,

Your dreams finally worth dreaming.


Your life is finally worth living,

Your dreams finally worth dreaming. (V.O. to fadeout)
