"This is a message aimed at young people (or anyone) to help them stand up for who they are and what they believe is right. Sometimes we get caught up with the wrong crowd, but we all have the courage to get out — we just have to find it, and believe....." (introduction by Darcy Jeavons)



Courage you need for fighting
But fear is whispering and waiting
waiting for your heart to run — and then
laughs — ‘cause you are weak again
You’re paralyzed, unable to move
But fear won’t win — it’s time to prove...

…even though I’m in the shadow
of the darkness you are spreading on me
My lips may not be moving, but soon
my voice will win
My reflection says I’m right
Oh, in my eyes I see the light

Who I am I will be
only when I live free
of the world shame made for me
Then I will know victory

Far from home I was running
Feeling all alone and worthless
You appeared and seemed to know it all
’til my tears began to fall
I thought you were so cool
But now I know — I’m not a fool

Who I am I will be
only when I live free
of the world shame made for me
Then I will know victory

I cannot help but hate you
and I I know my day is coming
But I never can forget
Revenge only brings regret
So now I wait silently
For when that door is opening for me

The day is drawing near
I will overcome the fear

The real me will show —
the “me” my dreams know

and you will know her too
it’s because of you
That I have come to see
Courage lives inside of me
