    [Verse 1]
    Your dreams , your fears , you're stuck right here, terrified by what you see.
    Made for , much more, so much in store ,but you’re stuck on insecurities.

    Who cares , let them stare , let down your hair cause you're full of majesty (full of majesty).They hate, they lie, they spit and deny cause they're full of jealousy ( full of jealousy).

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Let them hate you , but they won't break you ,don’t let them shape you , cause they didn't make you, don’t let them fake you , cause they will play you.don’t let them shake you, just do what you do

    I gotta be...

    [Chorus]
    True to me , true to me , true to me , true to me ,Like when it’s you and me , you in me , just you and me , you in me
    I gotta be true to me , True to me , true to me , true to me , Like when it’s you and me ,you and me , you and me

    [Verse 2]
    Breathe in , breathe out , and don’t you doubt what you learned in the light,
    push back, full attack don’t fall off track , keep up the good fight.Who cares, let them stare, Let them blow, hot air,
    Spread your wings to reach new heights.
    They hate, they lie, they spit and deny ,
    But we’ll shine like stars tonight.

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Let them hate you , but they won't break you , don’t let them shape you , cause they didn't make you, don’t let them fake you , cause they prey on you. Don’t let them shake you, just do what you do.

    I gotta be...

    [Chorus]

    like when it’s you and me , You and me , you and me ,
    I gotta be true to me , true to me , true to me ,like when it’s you and me , You and me , you and me , you and me

    [Vamp]
    I’m the light in the darkness ( light in the darkness)full of love and kindness ( love and kindness),We’re the light in the darkness ( light in the darkness), can I get a witness! (can I get a witness)

    Were the light in the darkness ( light in the darkness) full of love and kindness ( love and kindness),Were the light in the darkness ( light in the darkness)
    can I get a witness!( can I get a witness)

    Reflections of Love

    The love Christ has for us is compared to
    how a good husband loves his wife. In
    Ephesians 5:25-26 it says,“Husbands, love
    your wives, just as Christ loved the church
    and gave himself up for her to make her
    holy, cleansing her by the washing with
    water through the word, ”
    In Tony Evan’s book “Kingdom Man” he shows
    us how his dad loved his mom even when she
    was being unlovable, and how his father’s
    unconditional love affected his life and
    ministry today. I reflect on my own
    experience as well. One of the greatest
    things my dad did was give me a stable home
    by loving my mom, and showing it through
    hard work, sacrifice, and patience. I thank
    God for men and women like them who showed
    me how to love unconditionally. I wrote
    this part of the album as a reflection of
    how Christ views his Bride (the church),
    how his Bride should view him, and how I
    will view mine when the time comes.

    I know others like to keep it hushed , then
    they fall out of touch , but why should
    this be like us? We build our love on faith
    and trust.So..

    [Chorus 3]
    So honey tell me the truth , can’t you see
    I’m pulling for you? All these problems we
    can work through, But you got to tell me
    the truth ( in love).
    [Chorus 4]
    So honey, tell me the truth , because I
    love you , I laid my life down for you, so
    you can tell me truth. ( in love )
    Oh you can tell me the truth ( yes you can
    tell me the truth) , so come on and tell me
    the truth ( in love)
    Oh you can tell me the truth.
