Lyrics
Am I gonna die, am I gonna live, or am I gonna sit on the edge of it
Am I gonna fall, am I gonna fight or am I watch from the outside
Sometimes I wake from the deepest sleep, oh and I feel tomorrow in me
Like I don't wanna let the hand of yesterday hold me back

But everything I see, everything I watch, makes me wanna hold my ears till it stops
Makes me wanna run, makes me wanna hide, makes me wanna set this house alight

Oh but I remember my mother's voice
Telling me that every day's a choice
For where there's good, there's bad
But my child you always can

Be the difference
Be the difference
I know the world's gone mad it's true
(she said) be the difference
(you can) be the difference
Cos I see a fighter locked in you

Be the difference
Be the difference
When hope is a hand you don't wanna trust
(She said) be the difference
(you can) be the difference
Cos darling the future's watching us

So am I gonna open everything up, am I gonna let fury fill my cup
Am I gonna be an anthem singing in the dark, gonna light up this burning heart
Am I gonna still as rock, while everything shakes and tumbles off
Am I gonna remember the truth

Cos I wanna be nasty, wanna be brave, not let his fear make me afraid
I don't wanna pretend I'm too small to jump the wall
I'm just trying to remember her voice
Telling me that every day's a choice
For where there's good there's bad
But my child you always can

Be the difference (be the difference)
Be the difference
I know the world's gone mad it's true
(she said) be the difference
(you can) be the difference
Cos I see a fighter locked in you

So you gotta fight it
You gotta resist
Every days a choice to light the dark

You gotta sing loud
You gotta shout out
Fear is not a choice but you can choose to be the difference

Be the difference
I know the world's gone mad it's true
(she said) be the difference
(you can) be the difference
Cos I see a fighter locked in you

Be the difference
Be the difference
When hope is a hand you don't wanna trust
(She said) be the difference
(you can) be the difference
Cos darling the future's watching
