What You Preach


When is it you'll choose to practice what you preach
To the depths of the soul
Dose the truth reach

You speak of love and of light
Yet tremble with fright
Scared of the stares from blinded eyes

Withdraw and hide
Behind society's plentiful disguises
Afraid to take that all important step forward, instead choose to take two back

It's not love you lack, but confidence
So stand on shaking knees if you must
Put one foot in front of the other

That is a start to help you practice what you preach
Reach for the stars and realize you are more
Let the truth of you heart pour unto others
Be not afraid
