Back in junior high, well, I was a bit wild
Pretty safe to say that I was a troubled child
Didn't go to Juvie but they had me on file
Drinking like a man, but thinking like a child

You wouldn't want to know me, man, I was a hooligan
It was the only crowd who would ever take me in
Cared about nothing, that's the loser's way to win
I hit the ninth grade and something happened then

And it was a sacrifice
(Whoa)
There are those who give their lives

Lord, I'll follow if I have to leave all that I know
You go, I'll go and I know that I don't go alone
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
I will follow

I came to know my God first year of high school
Not a smart move if you're trying to be cool
They knew me as a druggie who wouldn't follow rules
My friends didn't get it and they thought I was a fool

They called me self-righteous 'cause I wouldn't smoke pot
And now I didn't wanna split a bottle of Schnapps
Plus I didn't wanna go running from the cops
And that's how I lost all the friends I got

And it was a sacrifice
(Whoa)
There are those who give their lives

Lord, I'll follow if I have to leave all that I know
You go, I'll go and I know that I don't go alone
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
I will follow

So everyone I knew just thought I was a freak
I wasn't hard to tell that they didn't want to speak
I used to be cool, but now I was a geek
Like drugs are for the strong and God is for the weak

Everything I have, well, I gave it to the cross
I count it as trash, I don't hesitate to toss
What I held dear was a burden to be lost
To get to the gold you've got to burn up the dross

And it was a sacrifice
(Whoa)
There are those who give their lives

Lord, I'll follow if I have to leave all that I know
You go, I'll go and I know that I don't go alone
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
Even if it's only me that goes
I will follow
