lyrics

The morning breaks
It smiles on me
I know what I’ve been
But not what I’ll be

Today they’ll see
When fate calls my name
I won’t shrink away
…Today they’ll see

The devil takes
He takes my hand
And tells me that I’m nothing
Just a broken man

Today he’ll see
I won’t be fooled this time
I won’t believe the same old lies
…Today he’ll see

Days I forget but I don’t mean to
All I love and things I choose
Can take this clay, and shape it new

Today I’ll see
The blue of the sky
And as the sun does shine
…So will I
