I wish you could be
All you ever dreamed
Move on, no regrets
Try to be the absolute best

Stand on your own
You can make it, be someone
Win the war in your head
Thats what the wise lady said!

There'll be times, when you cant face
The weary lights of day
But be strong & believe
You can be anything you wish to be

Don?t let your fears, hold you back
Life isn?t meant, to be easy
Find justice for what you lack

Time will heal the scars
Be proud of who you are
Taste the phantasies that you dread
Thats what the wise lady said!

I came from nothing here I am
I won the war in my head!

    General CommentI love this song! Probably one of my favourites by them. I agree with blackangel, I think it's about rising up from low self esteem and beating depression (I won the war in my head). Sarah has said she had low self esteem to the point of suicide, but has risen about that. I believe it's based on that. This song is so inspirational :)

    General CommentThis is my fav song by this band not only for the meaning itself but also because of the way Sarah sings..it's just beautiful. Sarah is telling someone to believe in himself/herself because he/she can be anything he/she wants. And to prove that, she says she once had low self esteem and now she is living her dream ("I came from nothing here I am
    I won the war in my head!")
    I like that this song has a very positive meaning to everyone who's feeling down.
