Lyrics

I try to stay afloat
in this world
that has sunk my boat.

(I'm) up and down, all turned around;
I don't know
which way is Home.

With constant thoughts of quitting
I don't know how I've survived.
My body's gettin’ tired, I might not have a choice…
Should I conform?

When they laugh at me,
Should I cry?
When they threaten me,
should I fight?
When the world doesn't care
should I?
When they say I am less,
am I really?

More… I want to be more.

(I feel) the sun on my face
The surf on a shore
Totally relaxed… Catch my breath…
Restored.

(I) turn my head a new perspective -
the sky wide above.
Is there really someone up there - who can help -
who cares enough? I want to believe…

…when they laugh at me,
it makes You cry.
…when they kill me inside,
that’s why You died.
…when the world doesn't care,
You care more.
…when they say I am less,
You say I am more.

I have to believe... I need to believe that...

When a part of me dies
does it go to Your side?
I must be mostly with You now. I wonder,
what's left to abide?

I feel more at home the less of me that's here.
The weaker I get, the less I have to fear.
Though I'm outnumbered here, I am not alone;
I am more with One – the greatest One I know.

When they laugh at me,
that is when You cry.
When the world around me kills,
that’s when You revive.

When it doesn't care
You say You care more.
When they say I am less,
You say I am more.

I'm tired of being less.
Is any of my heart left?
I know I'm not alone
in feeling I'm alone.

When they just don’t care
…You care more.
When they say we are less,
…You are more.

Yes, I am more at home.
There's less of me near.
I am more with One, now,
than I've ever been here.

When they say I am not,
You say that I am.
When they insist… I’m not…
You say, “I AM!

“More. One is more.
“I AM more. One is more.”
