Name of Song: The Decision to Be

Are you being your physical body?,
Or did you decide to be like someone else?,
Did you decide you weren’t the person you wanted,
So you adopted this other person to be yourself.

When you were young did you choose a winning person?,
That was better than you felt at the time,
Are you still being that person instead of yourself?,
Because you still need to rise a little higher.

To be yourself is surprisingly easy,
But you’d have to drop all that facade,
You might need to face up to a long look in the mirror,
Till you remember how beautiful you really are.

Chorus
We all seem to like to be someone,
A subtle way of never looking at who we are,
A false idea that someone’s grass is always greener,
So we don’t have to face who we really are.

There are many many choices when deciding,
What you are going to be when you grow up,
It seems so easy to become what you’ve decided to be,
But somehow forgetting you’re the one who is the source.

I don’t mean to try and confuse you,
But this act of becoming has us all really trapped,
Alas, the only one who really does anything,
Is truly you, before you act upon this life.

Your intention to be or do anything,
Comes before you decide to make the plunge,
This intention comes out of a special life force,
Called you, and nothing, nothing else.

Chorus
We all seem to like to be someone,
A subtle way of never looking at who we are,
A false idea that someone’s grass is always greener,
So we don’t have to face who we really are.
