Yeah uh uh
So much stress keeps running through my mind now.
Fell into a mess that I that wish that I could climb out.
I guess I hide it so nobodyíll find out,
The way everyone thinks that everything is fine now.

At home things are messed up with mom and dad,
And at school all my friends stab me in the back.
No one is real anymore; I hate the way they act.
Thereís so many things that I wish I had.

So God if your there do u understand?
Donít you care about anything thatís happenin?
Itís not fair to put me through all this junk again.
You see that Iím scared, so help me if you can.

So please speak loud and clear Ďcause Iím listenin'.
I need to know that youíre real Ďcause Iím strugglin'.
You need to show that your here Ďcause Iím stumblin'.
Show me that you care this is why Iím saying this

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it go (you got to let it go)

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it show (you got to let it show)

It was right then, when everything began to change.
I started looking at these things in a different way.
I saw life through Godís eyes and it wasnít the same,
And it was right at the time I called on your name.

Then I saw all these lies that was thrown away.
I recognized that I need you and on that day,
I cried out and seek you, that was when you came.
Now that I see you, Iíve been through a major change.

And I believe that youíre real Ďcause its so plain.
I finally feel I can make it through anything.
It donít matter what they speak or if they hate.
They canít keep me down no more Ďcause I seen your face.

And for now on never will I be the same
ĎCause Iím staying strong and I wonít bend this way.
Now that I know that youíre real, itís gonna be ok.
Yeah, youíre speaking in my ear and this is what you say

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it go (you got to let it go)

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it show (you got to let it show)

See thereís a war thatís going on outside,
And you can try to ignore and just run and hide.
But everyday more and more people die.
See the battles for souls, we're on the front lines

So many souls, just too scared to fight
Theyíre too worried about what people thinking of their life.
How can you fight if you donít lay down your pride?
And how will anyone see if you wonít shine your light?

So many of your friends walking around blind
You got the source that can open up their eyes.
Itís yíallís choice what you do with your lives,
But Iím gonna go to war Ďcause I made up my mind.

Jesus gave us life when he went and died.
So the least that I could do is give him all of mine.
So how many of yíall are ready to fight by my side?
ĎCause this is what heís saying right now here tonight.
Come on!

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it go (you got to let it go)

Are you real?
I want to know (I want to know)
Are you real?
Then let it show (you got to let it show)
