I’m no stranger to the darkness

It’s the only place I’ve ever been

I can’t tell when I will see the light

But I know that I will

And when I close my eyes

I see another world

Colors and a million dreams fill my mind

Keeping me awake

 

I’m no stranger to being called names

They just see me for how I look

I don’t know when they will learn my real name

But I know it will be everywhere

And when I lie in my bed at night

I see colors and lights

Imagine a million worlds

But nothing better than this

 

I am no stranger to a rough background

Years of mourning in the past

I don’t know when it will get better

But that makes me who I am

And when I take a moment to imagine

I see the colors and hear the crowd

See my name in the lights

 

I am no stranger to worrying

I hate that it’s something that I do

I don’t know when I will stop

But I have hope that I will

But when I stop for a moment or two

I can see the colors and hear the applause

See my name in the lights

See myself for who I want to be

 

I am no stranger

To the darkness

To a rough background

To being called names

To worrying

But when I stop to listen

And stop to imagine

I can hear the applause of the crowd

 

I don’t know when I will see the light

I don’t know when it will get better

I don’t know when you will learn my name

I don’t know when I will stop

The darkness is the only place I have been

They just see me for how I look

Years of mourning in my past

I hate that worrying is something that I do

 

But just wait because…

 

One day you will see the colors and the lights

Just as I do

One day you will see a million worlds

Just as I see

One day you will hear the applause of the crowd

Just as I hear

 

Welcome to my dream!

 

Where my name is lit up in lights

Where you can see me shine so bright

You can watch me light up the night

 

Welcome to my dream!

 

Where I can hear the applause

Where there is a million people in line to watch

You can be one of the million

 

Welcome to my dream!

 

Where everyone knows my name

Where no one calls me what they used to

You can take back everything you said

 

Welcome to my dream!

 

Where I can see it now

I can see the colors

Welcome to my dream!

Where I can hear it now

Rows of people all applauding me

My voice louder than anything

Welcome to my dream!
