Falling Star

you've become the winner, i've become the loser
but as a begar, i'm a chooser
as a winner, i was a user
i am not afraid
to say i got down on my knees and prayed

i know
the other way to go
on a broadway stage
at an early age
i thought i had the answer
but when i fell, i fell so far
i thought i was a falling star
disappearing deep into the dark

you've become the stronger, i've become the weaker
but i feel i am much deeper
than when my heart was just a sleeper
i am not afraid
to say i got down on my knees and prayed

i know
the other way to go
i played the games
in a world where names
were the measure of the man
but when i fell, i fell so far
i thought i was a falling star
disappearing deep into the dark

now i see the morning light
rising on my darkest night
the world's no longer black and white
but a million different colours, oh
I believe, I believe, Jesus leads, Jesus heals
