they took away
all that i thought that i needed
they made me feel
like i was second best
they forced me to look deep inside myself
they said i would fall just like all the rest

self doubt it has a hold on me
i tried so hard but i can't break free

this pain inside me
it used to bind me
now i can feel it drive me
won't accept what they tried to sell me
can't forget the times they betrayed me
won't accept what they tried to sell me
can't forget they betrayed me

if you feel like you can't go on
look deep inside
you can carry on
if you feel like you can't go on
look deep inside
you can carry on

self doubt it has a hold on me
i tried so hard but i can't break free

when all else fails
and we're searching for our purpose
and the light is out of focus
look at all we share
our refuge that's abounding
and the love and care surrounding
