"Great To Be Different" lyrics
Age Group: Adult
It was a dark day when I lost my faith
I wasn't the witch I thought I'd be
And it seemed that no one could relate
There was nothing left for me to see
So I took a walk to the edge of the town
And thought of leaving it all behind
When I saw a little letter fall right out of the sky
As a grey witch hovered way up high
I thought I was crazy when I saw her wave
And then simply fly away
So I opened the letter and looked inside
And what was written made my day...
Isn't it great to be different?
Isn't it wonderful to be exactly who you are?
When you learn to start accepting yourself
You'll become a shining star
To this day the writing on that page
Is mottled by the tears I shed
Cuz at that moment something inside me changed
And a bright new path I lead
I ran back home and I picked up my old guitar
And I started strumming these chords
And I sang her words along with this song
And I heard someone sing along
And we sang--
I turned around and I saw her at my door
That cute grey witch with the wall-eyed stare
She said, "I've heard you play and sing before.
And I heard a sadness I could not bear."
"I just wanted to tell you that the hardest thing I've faced
Wasn't the teasing or the pain
It was convincing myself I wasn't stupid, strange, or lame
And helping others do the same."
These last few years flew by just like a blur
I'm now exactly where I should be
And I know I owe it all to her
The beautiful witch who believed in me~
[Chorus x 2]
You'll become a shining star (Isn't it wonderful)
You'll become a shining star (Isn't it great)
When you learn to love just who you are
