Name of Song: The Greatness you feel could be the Greatness you have been

I know it seems so distant,
But it’s true at least for me,
I wouldn’t be bringing it up to you
If I didn’t so honestly see.

I’m hesitant to even discuss it,
I know it seems unreal,
So hidden and a constant doubt,
Inspirations that just won’t leave.

I’d like to hope it’s possible,
And not feel like a bore,
I’m doing what I feel is true to self
‘Cause I feel I’ve done it before.

Chorus
I can’t expect an interest,
In who I really am,
I need to sort this out myself,
And know I really can.

Inspiration opens wide your own greatness,
If only for that moment you feel inspired,
Courage to open up and bring you forward,
A chance to see the self you once admired.

People feel a fog about their past lives,
Many reasons to forget what happened then,
But being in the past doesn’t mean delusion,
After all the same could be happening once again.

This greatness that you feel most likely happened,
Even though it doesn’t match what you are now,
Resolving a little bit of that duality,
Can force you to remake your inner vows.

Chorus
I can’t expect an interest,
In who I really am,
I need to sort this out myself,
And know I really can.
