Lyrics

Is This the Real You <br />
Marsha Stevens and Chip Davis © 2001 Balm (ASCAP) <br />
<br />
My aching heart had hunted you, longing to be known, <br />
But each time I was asked to leave, left to seek alone. <br />
Out of the closet, out of the church, out of the prison of the search. <br />
I swore I’d never beg again, or hide my face in shame, <br />
This is how You made me, so I won’t take the blame, <br />
And since I’ve learned to live with the doubt, <br />
What’s this yearning in my heart tonight about? <br />
Chorus 1: <br />
Is this the real you, is this the real you? <br />
I wanted Truth but only learned to lie. <br />
Is this the real you, this time the real you <br />
My wounded heart can’t dare to hope, I lost the vision years ago, <br />
I searched so long how can I know if it’s true. Is it you? <br />
Oh my Child, I’m waiting here, longing to be known, <br />
I left all of the world behind to look for you alone, <br />
Out of the heavens, sentenced to death, saying I love you with every breath <br />
I watched out for you, smoothed the path, and tried to show you light, <br />
But you would never let me hold you in the night. <br />
So now once more, I offer you the chance, <br />
Will you turn away or join the dance? <br />
Chorus 2: <br />
Is this the real you, is this the real you? <br />
You looked for Truth but only learned to lie. <br />
Is this the real you, this time the real you <br />
You hid from me long years ago, my waiting heart has missed you so, <br />
So if you’re ready let me know if it’s true… <br />
God, you could not bless my lie, would not embrace my mask, <br />
But in this place, lost in your love, I’ll never have to ask. <br />
(Chorus 1) <br />
Just as I am without one plea, and yes this is finally the real me. <br />
So tell me one more time, God, is it You? <br />
<br />
