My time paying my dues
I've learned a lesson that dreams come true
Sacrifice still paying my dues
I planned a future and realized the truth
My time your time too
You laugh, I cry
But what can I do
I'm gonna get down on my knees
Gonna beg and plead, With a flower in my hand I return to you, yeah!
Stand tall, you are the reason
I call, change is the season
If I should fall, heal me sweet Jesus
Ease my worried mind, keep my dreams alive
Graveyard late night shift
I mop the floors with my soul
I need a break, a chance to let go of what I know, I need some light to find my way
I feel the heat the dark side of heaven from below, I walk the road that brings me back home
Waking up to what is real
Time to change the way I feel
