The morning comes like an enemy soldier
I feel the weight across my shoulders
I feel the shadows getting colder
But that ain't you

This noose ain't getting any looser
I get so fearful about the future
I hear the shame of my accuser
But that ain't you

I found strength but it wasn't what I thought
I found peace in the places I forgot
I found riches ain't the things that I had bought
Yeah, I found out the day I lost myself
Was the day that I found God

I get caught chasing my own illusions
I get so lost in these confusions
I keep on looking for my own solutions
But that ain't you, that ain't you, no

My enemies weren't the ones I had fought
My liberties weren't the freedoms I had sought
And what I learned weren't the lessons I'd been taught
Yeah, I found out the day I lost myself
Was the day that I found God

Where is God out in the darkness?
Cause the voices in my head ain't talking honest
They're saying maybe you made us then forgot us
But that ain't you, that ain't you, no

And all I know is that I still don't know a lot
I don't know how it ends, I'm in the middle of this plot
Yeah and I found grace for the man that I am not
Yeah, I found out the day I lost myself
Yeah, I found out the day I lost myself
Yeah, I found out the day I lost myself
Was the day that I found God
