Becoming Real

When I was a little girl I wanted life to
be the fairy tale that I was livin in my dreams,
But could it ever be the way that I
imagined in my mind as I was fallin off to sleep?

A little older, and a little bolder I just knew that I could make a change in this old tired world,
Who would have ever dreamed
the life You planned for me would bring the greatest change inside of me?

Now I know that you were with me all along- even when I felt alone on my journey,
I never thought that I would thank you for the tears I've cried.
Now I know.. that the wise old men were right- when they said that lookin back is twenty-twenty,
The Bewilderment of life... is making me real.

Like the rabbit in the story book
I never knew that I was loved
Until they left me in the cold,
Forgotten and alone;
But You were waiting in the wings
for just the perfect time to bring me Home.

A little older and a lot less bold- I just
wanted to find peace of mind and a place to call my own,
And after all the pain,
The lessons learned the bridges burned,
I look around me and I find I'm home.

Now I know that You were with me all along- even when I felt alone on my journey,
I never thought that I would thank You for the tears that I've cried.
Now I know.. that the wise old men were right- when they said that lookin back is twenty-twenty,
The Bewilderment of life is makin me real

You were never closer than when I just could not see you and,
You were never stronger than when I was so weak,
You wrote my story but I could not see the ending and
Your loving hands were forming something beautiful in me

Now I know that you were with me all along- even when I felt alone on my journey
I never thought that I would thank You for the tears that I've cried,

and I still cry- but oh...

Now I know.. that the wise old men were right- when they said that lookin back is twenty-twenty,
The Bewilderment of life,
These hardest times in my life,
Your loving hand in my life - is making me real.
