"STEREOTYPE"

Verse 1
Get ready to rock, get ready to roll, get ready to groove, get ready to soul.
Get ready to play, get ready laugh, get ready to get up and don't hold back.
I just don't know if I can even live up to all these thoughts in my head.
I just don't know if I even look good enough or bad enough. Shall I, for fear, stay in my bed?

Verse 2
Hey there, friend, I can't help but notice somethin' on your mind.
Would you be wonderin' when at the dance what kind of impression will you leave behind?
I know what you're feelin'. I know what you're thinkin' 'cause I feel just like you.
I'm a little nervous, but I want to have fun. What should we do?

Refrain 1
Should we
Reach out,
Take a step,
Forget ourselves,
Come out of our nest?

Shall I
Start with asking you to dance,
And will you give it a chance?

Chorus
'Cause there's so much beauty and so much life.
How can it be confined to a stereotype?
But now I see you in a new way.
Up until now I've been a human judge,
But I'm seein' things clearer, and I feel your nudge,
And I want to be lookin' your way.

Verse 3 [a cappella]
I'm not a movie star, but I know how to act
'Cause I've been acting like I know exactly what I want.
I had thought someone was right for me, but for the wrong reasons,
I shut everyone else out, all other possibilities

Refrain 2
I should've
Reached out,
Taken a step,
Forgotten myself,
Come out of my nest.

I should've
Asked someone to maybe dance.
I should've given somebody else a chance.

Repeat Chorus

Lead: --- two times

--- two times

Verse 4 [spoken]
It hasn't been easy, but I've come to realize
That the tough times I've gone through was love in disguise.
Once I had the aching, empty space I wanted to fill with someone,
But I soon found the only relief came from the One …

Refrain 3
Named
Jesus.
He's the One Who filled the
Empty space within my soul,
The broken heart, the empty hole.

Then He
Began to pour love
Into me, and I'm
Still learning how to pour it out to others,
As you can see.

Repeat Chorus

Lead: --- two times

Repeat Chorus twice

Adlibs: --- six times
