Want and Will lyrics / poem by James Barnett

Is there ever any other way
To separate shame from anything
And everything I say

I want to speak
I want to talk
I want to express myself
If you’d rather hear me or not

I want to sing
I want to dance
Express myself complete with every chance

I want to live
I want to grow
Surpass all that I’ve ever seen or known

I want to rise
I want to fly
And surely make an impact before I die

I’m here now
Each day still climbing
Constantly aware of the risk of falling

I want to write
I want to travel
Wake up into the dream
That I’ve been longing to make real

I want to lead
I want to inspire
Show myself and others
That we can keep going higher

I want to mentor
I want to transform
Burst forth from my cocoon of limitations

Here and now
I take a stand
Make the shifts from “I want”
To “I can” and “I did”

I am you
And you are me
See past the illusion of separation
We’re all from God
Of divine origin
Playing hide and seek in this cosmic drama

Remember who you really are
A spirit of immense power
Greater than you realize
Your only limitations are the ones
You place on yourself
All obstacles are illusions

Solutions only present themselves
Once you admit that they’re available
You really can live your dreams

The question is “Will you?”
Will you wake up to your life
Will you become what you dream of
Will you be proud of yourself
Starting with now
Will you go on and be bold
Will you be of good courage
And claim the precious prize
That you’ve been desiring for so long

You can have a life you love
What gets in your way
What have you allowed
To stop you for these many days

What imaginary resistance
Has delayed your greatness
Perhaps a lack of clarity
Perhaps a lack of faith
Perhaps you haven’t seen
That you are already great
You simply have to show that you are
You are

Who believes in you
Even when you don’t believe in yourself
Who trusts in you
Even when you don’t
Do you have someone like that
Who truly has your back
Do you have at least
One unconditional supporter
Someone to uplift you
Someone you can prove right
For their belief in you
Maybe they’re your Why
And you can be your own Why

Your Why is your fire
Your burning desire
That consumes you utterly
And pushes you onward
Helps you move upward

I want you to see
I want you to feel
I want you to know
That you’re already greatness
You’re already strong and powerful

I want you to speak
I want you to talk
I want you to express yourself
If they’d rather hear you or not

I want you to sing
I want you to dance
Express yourself complete
With every chance

I want you to live
I want you to grow
Surpass all that you’ve ever seen or known

I want you to rise
I want you to fly
And surely make an impact before you die

You’re here now
Each day still climbing
Constantly aware of the risk of falling

I want you to write
I want you to travel
Wake up into the dream
That you’ve been longing to make real

I want you to lead
I want you to inspire
Show me and others
That we can keep on going higher

I want you to mentor
I want you to transform
Burst forth from your cocoon of limitations

Here and now
I take a stand
Make the shifts from “You want”
To “You can” and “You did”
Make the shifts from “You want”
To “You can” and “You did”

You’ve got this
Go ahead and make me proud
Show me who you really are
You’re of divine origin
You’re important and you matter
You are worthy
And so am I
We are worthy and we matter
We’re important
And that’s what this song’s been all about

So I bid farewell for now
I’m never far away from you
We’re all connected and we’re all one
Contagious higher consciousness

There’s nothing to forgive
We are all innocents (innocence)
It’s no one’s fault
And there’s nothing to heal from
Be great, do great, and have greatness

Each day is another chance
Embrace it
Be grateful for it
Thank you, thank you, thank you
