My New Way

My New Way –  By Shawn Chadwick Sackman

One day I woke up 
Feeling sorry for myself
Not what I wanted for me
And then it hit me 
Realized I was free to be anything
Had big dreams before, but where had they gone
From that day on I said come-on 
My true test 
Never lose this feeling, feel so blessed

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Oh man I am reeling
Looked up winked, said thanks for the healing

(Chorus)
It’s my new way
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying 
I’m not letting a thing stop me 
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day
For my new way

I now want to try, to see what’s next
Got list of things to do, from my new view
I’m so okay, think I’ll stay

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Has me really reeling 
No no’s, just say yes and go
It’s a great feeling, want everyone to know

(Chorus)
It’s my new way 
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying
I’m not letting a thing stop me
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day

‘Cause I know this feeling helps me
Help others who can’t see
Not like before, no gray days for me
Oh what a day

My new way
Oh, I know it’s not just my new way
My new way
