You are more

There's a girl in the corner
with tear stains on her eyes
from the places she's wandered
and the shame she can't hide

She says, "How did I get there?
I'm not who I once was
and I'm crippled by the fear
that I've fallen too far to love"

But don't you know who you are,
what's been done for you?
Yeah, don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade

Well she tries to believe it
that she's been given new life
but she can't shake the feeling
that it's not true tonight

She knows all the answers
and she's rehearsed all the lines
and so she'll try do to better
but then she's too weak to try

But don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade

'Cause this is not about what you've done
but what's been done for you
This not about where you've been,
but where your brokenness brings you to

This is not about what you built,
but what I built to forgive you
and what I build to make you know

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade

You've been remade!
