The Man I Want To Be
(Christian Version)

Verse 1

I started out this life on a lonely highway
And when my time is done I'll be travelin' on
I walked these streets alone with a restless heart
But, I just never found the place where I belong

Verse 2

There was a time when I believed I was invincible
Chasing those dreams of gold just made for fools
I never saw the signs as the Horseman rode my way
Ignored the price I'd pay, the love I'd lose

Chorus

Release the flashing rage and silken chains that bind my body
Free my troubled mind, open these blinded eyes to see
Forgive the pain I've caused and all the love that I have wasted
Bring me closer to THE MAN I WANT TO BE (Inst)

Bridge

I was racing down that highway, but, I could not see the end
I said I didn't care, now, I no longer can pretend
The truth you share with me is what I need to be set free
Your words will help me change into THE MAN I WANT TO BE

Verse 3

I can no longer see the way that this will end
But, I will free my life of foolish pride
For all that I may need flows from your sacrifice
THE MAN I WANT TO BE stands by your side

Chorus

Release the flashing rage and silken chains that bind my body
Free my troubled mind, open these blinded eyes to see
Forgive the pain I've caused and all the love that I have wasted
Bring me closer to THE MAN I WANT TO BE

Outro

Release the flashing rage and silken chains that bind my body
Free my troubled mind, open these blinded eyes to see
Forgive the pain I've caused and all the love that I have wasted
Bring me closer to THE MAN I WANT TO BE
Just bring me closer to THE MAN I WANT TO BE.........
