"I Won't Be Left Behind"

July 01, 2008|By LISA McMANUS

I run as fast as I can but I still get beat.
I land on my head when I should be on my feet.
I try and move forward but I'm stuck in rewind
My past mistakes are always on my mind.

And then one day I decided that I will dwell
On the past no more
But look forward to a future that is so bright.
I simply will not be left behind. I will try my best in all that I do.

People think I'm nobody, but God says "Hey,
You're special to me in every way.
Because you are my daughter, you're part of my game.
Your heavenly father loves his children the same."

So the harder I am thrown, the harder I bounce.
I give my all and that's what counts.
People think I'm a different person 'cause of what I did.
But only God can judge; to him, nothing is hid.


Every night I hope that that day, I shined.
Friend's hurtful comments are locked in my mind.
But words won't bring me down, even if they're unkind.
Tomorrow is a new day, and I won't be left behind.
