21 Years

I face the day the rain may be here to stay
Time will explain all the ways I’ve got it all wrong
I’ve grown up to burn out to learn, we’re all the same
Chasing or fleeing the Love that got us this far
So prone to fail, and our hope’s so frail

21 years, and I am still learning to walk
This morning, I’m still finding out who You are
But that doesn’t make me less likely to fall
21 years and I’m still becoming
These 21 years are gone without warning
And time’s running out to figure this out and I still feel lost

I face the day and a war I still haven’t named
Demons and trials lay siege to truth and to grace
My heart breaks slow, what if I let go?

21 years, and I am still learning to walk
This morning, I’m still finding out who You are
But that doesn’t make me less likely to fall
21 years and I’m still becoming
These 21 years are gone without warning
And time’s running out to figure this out and I still feel lost

(break)

21 years, and I am still learning to walk
This morning, I’m still finding out who You are
But that doesn’t make me less likely to fall
21 years and I’m still becoming
These 21 years are gone without warning
And time’s running out to figure this out and I still feel lost
And I still yearn to belong

A Great Interruption

Life goes on just as it always has
Oh we plan our whole lives away
One day we’ll wake with a shout, You’ll interrupt history
One day they’ll know without a doubt You are Lord

Life goes on just as it always has
Drinking and laughing away, and carrying on
One day the heavens will shake and bring the kings to their knees
One day the whole world will know that Jesus is Lord

Oh this looks strange to me
The times and seasons and headlines now read
Of things that You spoke of long before me
It starts to unwind
Oh this feels strange to me
The birth pangs, the world has been groaning to be
Set free from all of these ancient chains
We’re seeing things change

And now we’ve become the days that won’t last
The world that we’ve know, a thing of the past
And now we’ve become the goats and the sheep
My God has spoken and now we will see
The moon will turn red, the sun dark as night
The earth will be shaken beneath starless skies
And now we’ve become the ending to be
The Lord He has spoken and now we will see
I will see

(break)

And now we’ve become the Children of Light
We’ll see creation how it was designed
And now we have come to grips with the price
Jesus has paid, He has saved my life
Here are my crowns, I lay at your feet
I am unworthy but worthy art Thee
And now we’ve become eternally Thine
Jesus I’ll love you with all of my
For all my life

A Long Line

Maybe I should know, but I swore the winds would change
Maybe there is something in this name
The world around me burns, but everything goes on the same
The music plays

I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life
I’ve seen fire, I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen trouble, I’ve seen pain
But the hardest time and the longest line – a devil in disguise
I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life

See the oceans roar, war is in the air
Funny you can never buy more time
Heaven needs no prayers from those who don’t believe it’s there
Why would you care?

I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life
I’ve seen fire, I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen trouble, I’ve seen pain
But the hardest time and the longest line – a devil in disguise
I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life

I’ve seen a long, long, long line
A long, long, long line
The hardest time and the longest line – a devil in disguise

I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life
I’ve seen fire, I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen trouble, I’ve seen pain
But the hardest time and the longest line – a devil in disguise
I’ve seen a long line of strange things lurking in my life

A Promise

Cherish my life
Love is not a word to describe a feeling but a promise
I’ll walk with you through this life
Patiently I’ll wait as we grow
Graciously I’ll carry you home
To the place where love has never been too old or young to grow

This is a promise I will never let you go
This is a promise I will love you alone
This is a promise I’ll be with you through this storm
This is a promise I am your’s for good

Cherish my life
Now I can see the love in your eyes
Your voice is like the ocean on a quiet moonlit night
And I know that we have so much to learn
But I’ve learned enough to know that you’re perfect
Life will rage, the seas will roar
But I will keep you safe and warm

This is a promise I will never let you go
This is a promise I will love you alone
This is a promise I’ll be with you through this storm
This is a promise I am your’s for good

Yours alone

Cherish my life
Love is not a word to describe a feeling, but a promise

All That I Know

You are the song I sing, my melody, my words
I’m far from perfect, I am disaster, You are Lord

All that I know is I am not worthy
To come here in tears before Your throne
To tell You my fears, or even to worship
I am no good, I am not worthy

You are the fire that burns inside my fainting heart
I’ve got it all planned out and You take me apart

All that I know is I am not ready
To go where You’ve called, so far from home
To conquer my fears, or to be brave in battle
I am no good, I am not ready

You are the light, the hope that whispers me along
But I am not skillful, I have never been that strong

All that I know is I am not able
To carry the world – this burden You gave me
To do what You will – to show them Your glory
I am no good, I am not able

I am no good…

All that I know is Jesus is able
To carry my world, the love of my Savior
He’s conquered my fears, now that I’ve seen His glory
Still I am no good, but Jesus is worthy
I am no good, but He’s made me ready
Still I am no good, but Jesus is worthy
That’s all that I know

Always Love You

Another palm tree sunset, I’m kissing it goodbye
I’m moving on for something, still not quite sure why
Don’t let me see you cry, I’ll always love you
Life is a crazy ride, but we still have it all

Someday we’ll be back and tell it all
We’ll look back and laugh about it all
The days will feel like years I know its true
Still I’ll always love you

They call for snow tomorrow, I think of where you are
Life’s only getting harder, and now I’ve seen it all
But I could drive all night, be there by lunch time
I’ll get on 95 and head to where its warm

And we’ll sit down and talk about it all
Walk along the beach and laugh it off
Tomorrow I’ll be driving home to you
Still I’ll always love you

Another palm tree sunset, I don’t wanna go
You’ll drive me to the airport, how I’ll miss you still
Don’t let me see you cry, I’ll be back soon
Come visit any time, we still have it all

I’ll call you every day and tell it all
If you get sad I’ll help you laugh it off
We’ll never let the distance hide the truth
Still I’ll always love you

Boardwalk Baby

And I’ll ride that wave cause you know I can’t stop
And the boardwalk baby just opened up shop
No its never too late to kick off the flip-flop
Oh that boardwalk baby, she got my heart stop

Say oh say, how do you say “you are lovely” in gorgeousese?
Cause with eyes like yours and words like mine, they’re bound to fall upon deaf ears
But if I can catch the butterflies, then I’m pretty sure you got me
In all my life I’ve never felt wings as big as these

And I’ll ride that wave cause you know I can’t stop
And the boardwalk baby just opened up shop
No its never too late to kick off the flip-flop
Oh that boardwalk baby, she got my heart stop

Pray oh pray, do you pray? Cause I think I prayed for you
When I said God spare a pretty day, that’s the morning that I met you
But if summer had a middle name, then I could tell you how I feel
But in all the movies, songs, and poems, there’s not a line that I could steal

And I’ll ride that wave, cause you know I can’t stop
And the boardwalk baby just opened up shop
No its never too late to kick off the flip-flop
Oh that boardwalk baby, she got my heart stop

And if the rain comes falling down, baby I’m not hiding from the waves
Man oh man, I hate the sound of turning over a new page
And if the good Lord spares a pretty day, then I’m falling on my knees
In all my life I’ve never seen waves as big as these
Waves as big as these

And I’ll ride that wave, cause you know I can’t stop
And the boardwalk baby just opened up shop
No its never too late to kick off the flip-flop
Oh that boardwalk baby, she got my heart stop

Change Your Mind

Four and a half years, we were invincible
I never had a fear, and you never said why
Whatever happened here brought this hurricane’s eye ashore
You slowly disappeared from my life less or more
Less or more

What ever happened to this love we shared could never fall
All that I’m asking is for you to change your mind
Whatever happened took my breath away, I never saw it coming
Now I’m asking for you to change your mind
Change your mind

I hope everything’s fine, cause I am vulnerable
I never changed my mind, but babe I’m not that strong
Whatever happens here with you and I assure
I’ll slowly reappear from this slide less or more
Less or more

What ever happened to this love we shared could never fall
All that I’m asking is for you to change your mind
Whatever happened took my breath away, I never saw it coming
Now I’m asking for you to change your mind
Change your mind

(break)

What ever happened to this love we shared could never fall
All that I’m asking is for you to change your mind
Whatever happened took my breath away, I never saw it coming
Now I’m asking for you to change your mind
Change your mind

Defiance PartA

(instrumental)

Dust

We’re built for breaking down
Our faces bent towards the bitter frown
Feels like I’m losing my sound
Our blood is dripping straight into the ground

My dust is in Your hands
The soul You gave me like a flickering candle
With darkness creeping in
I need Your words to get right under my skin

Is there no hope for these chains?
The very shackles – my DNA
Feels like I’m losing the reins
Moving faster towards a shallower grave

My dust is in Your hands
The soul You gave me like a flickering candle
With darkness creeping in
I need Your words to get right under my skin

We’re built for breaking down
The stars are falling – a warning avowed
Time is tumbling down
A flood is coming, we’re flickering out

Ears Will Sing

Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear
Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear

I’m tired of the lonely days, baby I don’t look the same
Without your love here lighting up my face
Why’d you have to go away, a week feels like a million days
And now I miss you more than I can say
I can’t last another day

Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear
Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear

I’m tired of the rainy days, I swear you took the sun away
The summer fled when you got on that plane
The clock got stuck at quarter-of, and man it’s rough being in love
The hearts aren’t safe
You’ve gone away

Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear
Maybe you belong with me and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear

(break)

La da da…
My ears, my heart it breaks, my ears
My ears, and my hearts it sings, my ears

Maybe you belong with me, and maybe I just cannot breathe
Without you here, I can’t hear
Baby please come back to me then maybe I could finally breathe
When you’re here, my ears will sing

Fields Wide Open

The years are cracks in concrete walls
And all the wrinkles on my face
At 25 my hair is white and I’m still not sure who to blame

Memories lay broken
A quarter-life is not enough, but too much just the same
Still my fields wide open
But all I wanna leave behind is all I wanna take

My heart is big enough for two
Me and someone just like you
But God please take the keys
Cause I am drunk and still don’t have a clue

Memories lay broken
A quarter-life is not enough, but too much just the same
Still my fields wide open
But all I wanna leave behind is all I wanna take

Well my life’s in drive, but my heart’s been stalling
And I would die to catch a break
Make me crack a smile, cause the best is calling
And I’ve got no one here to blame
But me

Finally

The most beautiful things in life are hard to find
And even harder to hold onto, and our dreams are hard to come true
Maybe its all just a plan that shows with time
Am I ready to see? Am I ready for life?
Take a breath and scream, its here tonight

I’m finally ready to make my way back home
I finally found you, how could you still be alone?
Either I’m lucky, or God made you for me
Either way I can’t believe I finally found you

I will wait for you no matter how long
Whatever it takes to hold you in my arms
Just so you know I won’t let go
Just so you know I’m your’s to hold

I’m finally ready to make my way back home
I finally found you, how could you still be alone?
Either I’m lucky, or God made you for me
Either way I can’t believe I finally found you

You’re beautiful
And I’ll take you home

I’m finally ready to make my way back home
I finally found you, how could you still be alone?
Either I’m lucky, or God made you for me
Either way I can’t believe I finally found you
I finally found you
I finally found you
I’m finally home

God Will Provide

I’ve seen it all before, and I’ve learned enough to know by now
Nothing is impossible, and the down aren’t always out
The faithful bear their scars, the battles waged, they conquered all
Still they live to cast their crowns on heavenly shores

But doubts invade, would’ve overtaken
Had they not remembered always to believe

God will provide, He sees your closed eyes and bended knees
He whispers through your cries, and He knows your needs
His very hand is working all your life
So just remember, the very moment all feels hopeless
God will provide

He’s seen it all before, and He’s got your situation figured out
And you’ve prayed, but your hope could not be found
But Jesus bears our scars, the debt is paid, He’s covered all
And so it shows He cares for you, and He won’t let you down

But doubts invade, my friend I pray
Don’t forget all that you believe

God will provide, He sees your closed eyes and bended knees
He whispers through your cries, and He knows your needs
His very hand is working all your life
So just remember, the very moment all feels hopeless
God will provide

But doubts invade, this hurricane
Nights laid awake, when will this ever change?
Cause I don’t stand a chance, I feel so alone
Jesus see my heart — though broken — is your home
Remember me

God will provide, He sees your closed eyes and bended knees
He whispers through your cries, and He knows your needs
His very hand is working all your life
So just remember, the very moment all feels hopeless
God will provide

Hello, Are We Broken?

Complacency is such a time bomb
Sometimes all it takes is something going wrong
For everything to work out right
Still not content with your big home, or your nice car, Mr. Big Shot
You’ll gain the world but lose your life, your soul
Alone

Can’t you see the sunset coming
Weren’t we made to live for so much more?
Hello, are we broken
Can’t you see the moon is falling
The day has come to wake up and behold?
Hello, are we broken

Comfortable is such a sad word
Weren’t we made for the unknown?
How can it be, we’ve lost ourselves
Well I’m not content with the “real world”
Where the poor die, kids with no home
Worth should be based on so much more than gold

Can’t you see the sunset coming
Weren’t we made to live for so much more?
Hello, are we broken
Can’t you see the moon is falling
The day has come to wake up and behold?
Hello, are we broken

Have we tried to build ourselves
Have we lost sight of the one example of what love really was?
Could you reason your life to the God who gave the call
Could you realize this system is flawed

Complacency is such a time bomb
Are we so cold, when will the light come on?

Can’t you see the sunset coming
Weren’t we made to live for so much more?
Hello, are we broken
Can’t you see the moon is falling
The day has come to wake up and behold?
Hello, are we broken

I Can't Take Any More

Take me back to the way things were
When everybody knew who their neighbors were
A simple man was measured by the good of his word
I can’t take any more

I don’t wanna see another shopping mall
A bank on every corner with a green light on
A pharmacy selling lies to teenage bombs and moms
Oh I can’t take any more

Maybe we’re a people with a light burning out
Maybe I’m the only one not selling out
I try to hope, but lately, oh I have my doubts
I can’t take any more

Change don’t come from the president
Change don’t come from our politics
It’s a battle we fight deep within
Oh I can’t take any more

Occupy my heart cause God I need You now
I’m calling out, oh I’m calling out
You’re the riot that can fix this now
Oh I can’t take any more

Maybe we’re a people with a light burning out
Maybe I’m the only one not selling out
I try to hope, but lately, oh I have my doubts
I can’t take any more

(break)

Maybe we’re a people with a light burning out
Maybe I’m the only one not selling out
I try to hope, but lately, oh I have my doubts
I can’t take any more

In Between

Up in our room, I’m missing you badly
And I’m waiting for you to come home and hold me
I’ve got the choice, but there’s nowhere else that I’d rather be

Baby our love, it ain’t always perfect
And never enough, but it’s always perfect
I’ve got the choice, but there’s nowhere else that I’d rather be

Than in your arms, or in your absence, or in between
Cause all the waiting is full of grace notes, beautifully

Friday night alone, watching old westerns
Keep checking my phone, it’s quarter-after
I’ve got the choice, but there’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Up in our room, it’s just my guitar and me
Both waiting for you, a bittersweet melody
I’ve got the choice, but there’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Than in your arms, or in your absence, or in between
Cause all the waiting is full of grace notes, beautifully

In your arms

Just Be Yourself

Sometimes we just try too hard
The feelings seem forced and the words lose their charm
I’m starting to wonder if I even know who you are
And so why, why, why won’t you just be yourself?

You’re running from your shadow, you’re trying to escape it
And I wanna love you for you
Loving undercover, I’m doubting we can make it
Baby just be yourself
Baby just be yourself

Love leave the act, I don’t need it
Whatever you lack let’s concede that
It’s not a big deal, what hurts me the most
Is that you’re not real with me
So why, why, why can’t you just be yourself?

You’re running from your shadow, you’re trying to escape it
And I wanna love you for you
Loving undercover, I’m doubting we can make it
Baby just be yourself
Baby just be yourself

And so why, why, why would you hide from me?
I guarantee our love can’t sustain one more lie
And you don’t even have to try

You’re running from your shadow, you’re trying to escape it
And I wanna love you for you
Loving undercover, I’m doubting we can make it
Baby just be yourself
Baby just be yourself
Baby just be yourself

Know

Lately I’m trying, I’m trying to love you with more than my words
Holding you tighter than I ever did before
We’re staring at glances and finding romance on lazy afternoons
All of a sudden, all my dreams are made for two

One day we grow, and the next day we’re alive
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine
And I won’t give up, I don’t need no alibi
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine

Lately life’s been fun, and I love you’re messy bun,
Maybe that’s strange
I’m tired of the lie that you need to act your age
We’ve got what they’re missing, so what we’re kissing
Where everyone can see
Babe I warned you, I can’t love so quietly

One day we grow, and the next day we’re alive
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine
And I won’t give up, I don’t need no alibi
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine

(break)

One day we grow, and the next day we’re alive
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine
And I won’t give up, I don’t need no alibi
Someday you’ll know that you know that you know that
Someday you’ll know that you know that you’re mine

Lately I’m trying, I’m trying to love you with more than my words

Letting Ourselves Go

I don’t even see what’s happening to me
You caught me by surprise and now, I can barely breathe
We underestimate the risk of compromise
Said we’d never go there, but then slowly we arrive

Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go
Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go

I don’t even see what’s happening to me
Everything I thought I knew, I question constantly
We underestimate the speed of our demise
Blinding fast or blinding slow, we’re blind so we don’t mind

Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go
Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go

I don’t even see what’s happening to me
You caught me by surprise and now, I can barely breathe
I now appreciate the weight of grace divine
Love is there to hold me tight and somehow save my life

Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go
Oh our world breaks slow, we never even know
We’re letting ourselves go

Oh my heart breaks slow, so I never even know
I’m letting myself go
Oh my heart breaks slow, so I never even know
I’m letting myself go

Life Sails On

I write the lines to my own story
But life it rarely plays along
Deep inside, I start to worry

Life sails on, let this song say I love you
Cause baby weathered sails still fly
Keep me young, and in the long run my heart will soak through
You’ll be the love of my life

I face my fears of growing lonely
And growing older even still
Forget the years, I’m not worried

Life sails on, let this song say I love you
Cause baby weathered sails still fly
Keep me young, and in the long run my heart will soak through
You’ll be the love of my life

(break)

Life sails on, let this song say I love you
Cause baby weathered sails still fly
Keep me young and in the long run my heart will soak through
You’ll be the love and the wind of my life, baby
You’re the sun and the moon of this tide, baby
You’re the love of my life
The love of my life

Lonely

You don’t even see just where we are
Somewhere in foreshadows of our breaking hearts
What’s colder now this winter or your arms?
I’m waiting for just anything to show me who you are again.

You’re not there and that’s just fine
I don’t need to watch this time pass lonely
You don’t care and that’s just fine
In deep thick air I’ll spend my time lonely
Lonely

I’m tired of spending time across the room
And walking through this valley of impending doom
It’s clear to see once near that I’m see-through
So tell me why I’m feeling like I’m slowly losing you

You’re not there and that’s just fine
I don’t need to watch this time pass lonely
You don’t care and that’s just fine
In deep thick air I’ll spend my time lonely
Lonely

(break)

You’re not there and that’s just fine
I don’t need to watch this time pass lonely
If you don’t care then step aside
Cause I won’t spend the rest of my life lonely
Lonely

Love Decided

Strike a match, it’s going down
Pour gasoline, our love could see the world burn down
Everybody’s finding out
My heart is yours and yours is mine, and now we’re ours

But don’t believe that I could love you so quiet
I’m not ashamed of you beloved, I can’t hide it
I would kiss you here on stage or in crowded rooms
The hearts are sure to break but our love’s decided

Cross the sky, its going down, down, down
Our love can’t be bound by words that can’t do justice now
Falling, I am falling down, down, down
I’m plunging into love and it sounds like you do love me

But don’t believe that I could love you so quiet
I’m not ashamed of you beloved, I can’t hide it
I would kiss you here on stage or in crowded rooms
The hearts are sure to break but our love’s decided

And I know they’ll talk a lot, but I give you more than words
I’ll give you more than songs, I know that love’s a verb
I’ll give you all I’ve got, just let that be enough
I pray to God

But don’t believe that I could love you so quiet
I’m not ashamed of you beloved, I can’t hide it
I would kiss you here on stage or in crowded rooms
The hearts are sure to break but our love’s decided
Love’s decided

Love Is So Much More

Are you still waiting by, by, by the phone
For the one who swore they’d never let you go?
Are you still thinking, I, I, I don’t know
How I got here, well I wanna let you know
You weren’t made to live alone, I know

Don’t believe the lies they told to you
Love is so much more
Than movie lines or words that can’t hold truth
And feelings lose their worth
But when love lays down its life, gives up everything
There’s truth in sacrifice that no words could sing
There’s no better way to say
Love is so much more

So you’re moving on, out, on your own
Were you tired of being alone?
Are you still thinking, I, I, I don’t know
How I got here, well I wanna let you know
You weren’t made to live alone

Don’t believe the lies they told to you
Love is so much more
Than movie lines or words that can’t hold truth
And feelings lose their worth
But when love lays down its life, gives up everything
There’s truth in sacrifice that no words could sing
There’s no better way to say
Love is so much more

Are you looking for a love to make you whole
A love to fill your soul
There’s only one I know
Are you feeling like you were made and meant for love that’s
So much more?

Don’t believe the lies they told to you
Love is so much more
Than movie lines or words that can’t hold truth
And feelings lose their worth
But when love lays down its life, gives up everything
There’s truth in sacrifice that no words could sing
There’s no better way to say
Love is so much more
Love is so much more

Maybe I'm

Along the shores of all I love and everything I won’t give up
I don’t wanna wait, I don’t wanna wait
And the miracles that call my name, I’d ignore and choose to blame
Just get in my way, find another way
From living here, now I fear

Maybe I’m too far from the ocean, I know better
Maybe I’m caught up in the motions driving me
Maybe I’m too far from the ocean I know better
Maybe I’ve been caught here in between

I pray the tears would go away from all the years wasted away
What am I living for? What are we living for?
And I think I hear You call my name
But could you speak through guilt and shame?
And walk into my world, every single word is ringing clear
You found me here

Maybe I’m too far from the ocean, I know better
Maybe I’m caught up in the motions driving me
Maybe I’m too far from the ocean I know better
Maybe I’ve been caught here in between

And if it drives me to belief, well then I’m dying to believe
And if it’s only up to me, then I’ll never see the light of day again
If it drives me to belief, well then I’m dying to believe
And if it’s only up to me I’ll never see (never see)
Always be (always be)
Hopelessly, God help me
Or I’ll never see the light of day again

Well maybe I’ll just run to the ocean, I know better
Maybe I’ll just run from the motions driving me
Maybe I’ll just run to the ocean, I know better
Maybe I’ve been caught there in between
Been caught here in between

Miss You Girl

So I lie awake tonight, I’ve tried my hardest just to sleep
Memories of you and me slowly turn from thoughts to dreams
But I wake up alone

I miss you girl, though I fully take the blame
Sometimes what we want to do and can’t do are the same
I miss you girl, and we’re so, so far away
Of all we dreamed of happening today
Please don’t let go of yesterday
I miss you girl

The faces pass, the crowds they fade
How I long to see your face
I miss your hair, I miss your eyes
I miss the way you smell tonight
Still I walk alone

I miss you girl, though I fully take the blame
Sometimes what we want to do and can’t do are the same
I miss you girl, and we’re so, so far away
Of all we dreamed of happening today
Please don’t let go of yesterday
I miss you girl

Don’t let go, don’t let go
Don’t give up on yesterday

I miss you girl, though I fully take the blame
Sometimes what we want to do and can’t do are the same
I miss you girl, and we’re so, so far away
Of all we dreamed of happening today
Please don’t let go of yesterday
I miss you girl

Monster I've Become

I don’t see the world through brilliant eyes, I can’t see past today
Yesterday nearly took my life, I wanna explain
But my excuses seem to be wearing thin
How long can I live this way?
How long can I stray?

Maybe if I read between the lines I could reason my life
If I could keep from feeling guilty I could be alright
Turn away, hope nobody sees, is this really how its supposed to be?
Still I smear Your blood with the monster I’ve become

I fake a smile, pretend like life’s okay, just the cost of fitting in
It almost took my life yesterday to keep my friends
I sort of thought by now I’d feel better
Tomorrow I’ll be fine
I’ll just close my eyes

Maybe if I read between the lines I could reason my life
If I could keep from feeling guilty I could be alright
Turn away, hope nobody sees, is this really how its supposed to be?
Still I smear Your blood with the monster I’ve become

And I bleed
And I smear Your blood

Maybe if I read between the lines I could reason my life
If I could keep from feeling guilty I could be alright
Turn away, hope nobody sees, is this really how its supposed to be?
Still I smear Your blood
In my shame I run
From the monster I’ve become

More Than An Angel

Darling you are so strong, beautiful like your mom
You’re bound to break some hearts, but cherish the good ones
I want you to chase your dreams, imagine a time machine
Find your own melody to sing with all your lungs

And all of the world can keep their fears
You’re never alone, I’m always here
As close as a breath on your lips
You’re more than an angel

Embrace all the perfect days, fully alive ain’t safe
But fear and faith are the same, just eyes for the unknown
The wildflowers I made for you, they bloom like I know you will
A heart full is prone to spill, so love like you’ve been shown

And when the heart of a girl stops and prays
I’ll paint her a song with skies ablaze
A flare in My heart, all the same
More than an angel

(break)

And all of the world can keep their fears
You’re never alone, I’m always here
I’ll walk you home, dry your tears
You’re more than an angel

Move Into The Light

I’ve been running backwards
But it’s all inside this forward train called life
It’s moving fast
I’ve been looking after things from Heaven and from history
And I feel so off track

One by one, the questions come like waterfalls
And answer rushed on by
I’m undone, I can’t see past my own two eyes
When four words shake my life
Move into the light

So I got set on silence
Some good books, and prayer to pass the time
And I began to see
That our minds are not vacuums
They get filled with thoughts that multiply
To what we’ll someday be

One by one, the days stayed brighter longer
And my heart began to right
The songs I sung were all about a fighter
Who would love with His whole life
Move into the light

One by one, the answers came like waterfalls
And darkness rushed on by
I’d begun a journey for perspective
I would chase for my whole life
Move into the light

Much Wanted More

Much wanted more and lost all and all never had much meaning
Love stood its ground and kept calling all that would hear and believe it

Go where you feel the sun is brighter, child
I will be there, for life, for love I’ll follow
Where your heart is breathing, where your ears are singing
Go

So find a free way, don’t take the shortcuts baby
I promise beauty, but I can’t promise safety
So go where your heart beats faster, show me what’s worth chasing after
Go

So go find a place worth staying, know I will hear you praying
Go
Go

My Way From Here

Take me to a better place than this
I don’t wanna wake to have missed my life
Is it me, or has the mirror dimmed to show my eyes so cold tonight?
I don’t wanna take a number now
God I need You here with me tonight
Even with these walls all closing in on me, I’m holding on so tight
I’m holding on so tight

Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m tired of standing still, and I had bigger dreams than getting by
Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m running out of time, and I had bigger dreams in this life

I have been so tied up in my fears
The world’s been pushing me around so long that nothing’s clear
But never let them doubt your years
I’m strong enough to push right back, but only cause You’re here

Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m tired of standing still, and I had bigger dreams than getting by
Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m running out of time, and I had bigger dreams in this life

I’m running out of time, I’m running out of time
In this life

Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m tired of standing still, and I had bigger dreams than getting by
Could You help me find my way from here?
I’m running out of time, and I had bigger dreams in this life

I’m running out of time, I’m running out of time
(In this life)
Could You help me find my way from here
I’m running out of time, I’m running out of time
