Remember Who You Are – Lyrics

Tell me why you hide from me,
Or am I blinded by the expectation,
Of what I’ll see?
How do you expect nothing, but
Stay open to everything?
I’ve been trying to keep an open mind, but
Listen! Why do you make yourself so hard to find?
I’ve been looking for you left and right,
Tell me! Have I even so much as glimpsed a sight?
Well it’s not just a matter of curiosity,
Your existence is what makes or breaks this world to me.
Because if you’re not real, how do I know what is?
Maybe I’m just imagining all of this…

I take whatever form you picture me in, but
You can not see what you don’t believe in.
You’re always looking for proof,
Your faith is like a house that has no roof.
The howling winds of doubt, they sweep right through.
You’ve forgotten everything that you once knew.
All you need is to remember who you are,
Then you will see that I am never far from you.

You need not fear, we’re always here.
If you only knew who walks with you,
You’d never feel alone, scared of the unknown.
You would stand up straight, and comfort the afraid.
