Been writing songs for fifteen years now going nowhere fast Playin' smoky bars and and pretendin' to be stars nothing seems to last I'm gettin' tired, but I'm on fire I want to outrun my past Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us this time We've heard the good ones, and sung some worse ones nowhere to go but up from here It's time to move in, tear down and start again we've got blood and sweat and tears We've got things to say, tired riffs to play but is it what you want to hear? Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us this time
I never want to say That I never did try 'Cause I'm afraid I wouldn't get by I never want to say That I never did live 'Cause I'm afraid of what I couldn't give Every day seems a little busier than the one that came before Even now I'm a little older and asking what's in store I don't the know the future and I don't care to know I just don't want to be left putting on an empty show I never want to say That I never did hope 'Cause I'm afraid of a hopeless cause I never want to say That I never did help 'Cause I'm afraid of helplessness Every day could seem a little brighter If I could manage to to follow the light Every day could seem a little longer If only I wouldn't fall away Every moment we give to something we hate Is a moment we've thrown away Every single little step that I take Is something I can never get back
Light + Love 03:34
Light and love mean different things to different men To me it's a world without any kind of sin Where there's no war and life is worth more than the next way to die by the sword Light and love mean different things to different men To me it's a world without disposable children where we'll find a bloody redemption that will cleanse from all corruption and bring us to a glorious resurrection Chorus Now is not the time to be cautious Now is not the time be be careful but lose ourselves in his grace lose ourselves in his love You can feel a breeze blowing through It's on your skin and you know it's true A holy river is surging now, bring light and love rushing down Chorus
The day you came to me It changed everything I became a man, I couldn't stay the same You led me to my knees to pray and say “thank you God” and “help me” and “keep him safe” Oh, keep him safe. Chorus Life is so much more wonderful, and frightening, and beautiful so beautiful Everything is different now the world is somehow bigger now And I'm afraid of a darkness unseen But I look at you and I see the way God loves us and gives us grace Oh, he gives us grace Chorus You made my life mean something it didn't mean yesterday and all this is to say I love you I love you I love you I love you My son.
Selah 03:08
The world is a beautiful place but it's broken in almost everyway It's true we're all one and the same and we'll never be completely safe Selah I know I'll never be everything that you need But I'll try with all my might to be a father that's salt and light Selah Chorus Well, there's a God who loves you even more than the sky is blue and there's a man who died for you... his name Jesus When the darkness closes in I hope you know I've always been there praying for something beautiful for you my love Chorus Well, he rose from the dead that day and now he's all your hope and you can say Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Selah
