Where are we and why are we here What’s our worth between the dirt and the ionosphere How many, how many insular years Until we realize the answer’s not between our ears Come heaven, come kingdom come Answer the question with direction cause we’re needing some Being alive is no reason, reason to live To exist is no cause, cause to persist To be loved by God and loving Him back That’s the meaning of life, that’s the meaning of life What drives me, what gets me out of bed What can I say but something someone else has already said He moves me, He is why I live The only reason for existence I can possibly give Come heaven, come kingdom come Give us the answers with direction cause we’re needing some Surrender, turn it over Whatever it is let it go and make it His

Contemplating life, and the way I want it to be I see the line, between what I have and what I need There’s a desire, inside of me that wants a change I’ve got to know, is it wrong for me to feel this way Everything I have, leaves me wanting on the inside And what I need, is something that can satisfy I won’t ride the fence, it’s not the way that I am I’ll just move the line, until my heart is content Just beyond my reach, I keep pushing the fence You can always count on me, to be chasing the wind On and on in me, will this ever end Or will I always be, chasing content Contemplating life, and they way things have to be I know the secret, to be content in everything Sometimes we need to leave it all and just stop, stop And what we think we need we could just drop, drop In only Him we will finally be content Just beyond your reach, you keep pushing the fence Will you always be, chasing the wind You can find your strength, only in Him Or will you always be, chasing content In only Him we will finally be content

Take me to your presence Away from here Because I’m alive when I see you I’m alive when I feel you The closer I am to you The further I am from being alone The closer I am to me The moment you’re out of reach So here I am before you Crying out Because you restore this broken heart And you bring meaning to my life The closer I am to you The further I am from being alone The closer I am to me The moment you’re out of reach Draw me closer to your side Steal my heart and take my pride

Tonight’s gonna be the night remembered for a while If you’re feeling it, I’m feeling it, were feeling it tonight So won’t you go for a ride with me and you will see how long How long it takes to get us to the place where we belong I lift my hands up, lift my head up Say “God, what’s up?” If you’re felling good sing “whoaa” So follow me it’s time to leave your troubles behind No better place then here no better time then now So won’t you go for a ride with me and you will see how long How long it takes to get us to the place where we belong I lift my hands up, lift my head up Say “God, what’s up?” If you’re felling good sing “whoaa” It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from Or what kind of car you’re driving All that matters is that you know the One The One who loves you

These mountains surround me from left to right As far as I can see The horizon is fading out of sight Far away from me The faith of a little seed is all I need to get by If I rely on you inside of me All things are possible Let’s take these mountains for a ride All alone in this valley but I’m alright Because you’re watching over me When I feel small and weary and I can’t go on You give me what I need Own my own I’m not enough Own my own I’m not enough I’ll just stand here and be still knowing you are God
6.
Oh I, I’ve got this feeling Everything’s gonna be alright ‘Cause I, I believe that It’s darkest just before its light In the morning it will be alright I believe it now, and I’ll shout it out Over and over again When you light shines, it takes me by surprise Over and over again Oh I, I’ve got a feeling That sometimes you feel stuck in the night But he won’t stop reaching He always hears your cries In the morning it will be alright I believe it now, and I’ll shout it out Over and over again When you light shines, it takes me by surprise Over and over again Take me to the place that I can believe again

For such a long, long time I’ve been running in circles just to find There’s so much more to this life Than what were living for We limit all of our time To just getting us by But what we really need to know There’s freedom in letting go I’ve felt the ocean’s tide rushing over me I’ve sensed the awesome power of mountains under my feet But I’ve never felt this way Oh I’ve never sensed these things No I’ve never felt this way Until you Now I'm not alone His love has changed this heart of stone I'll never look back again Because my faith is now in Hime My guilt and shame and fear Just up and dissappeared Into a sea of forgetfulness As far as the east is from the west I’ve felt the ocean’s tide rushing over me I’ve sensed the awesome power of mountains under my feet But I’ve never felt this way Oh I’ve never sensed these things No I’ve never felt this way Until you Until you knocked on my heart’s door I opened wide for something more No my vision is clear I see with new eyes And I can’t wait to tell the world How you changed by life
8.
Could you ever pardon me For what I've done to you Words spoken from lips unclean That have denied the truth Take this heart of mine I leave it for your will to find Don't leave me all alone 'Cause I've been there from time to time Are you willing to Take this heart and lead it 'Cause I long to honor you So this time I'm asking for What's reliable Because I've been through so many things Have a heart that knows what it means To be thrown around and left crying out

Once I came to terms with life I said “life I want to give you all away” Don’t cry for all the years There’s no sense in senseless tears today And I turned around just in time To see my world unwind And I don’t mind, I don’t mind I life full of regrets I leave it all behind And I don’t mind I’m on my way now And I won’t call if it’s all the same to you Life it’s time to say good bye And I’ll just smile when you ask me why And I turned around just in time To see my world unwind And I don’t mind, I don’t mind I life full of regrets I leave it all behind And I don’t mind I know where to go from here If I fall will you catch me Crashing into something new Something beautiful

The scars and stains she wears are so hard to hide I see her eyes filled with hurt and heartaches From the pain inside she can't deny About to lose the only thing that remains Her precious life | As She falls to her knees she begins to see You're all she needs And all that I can give her Is all you are As she falls to her knees tonight He can take it away The hurt and the pain Just close your eyes And I can make it alright You'll never be the same From this day Just close your eyes   And I can make it alright Her search for absolutes has lead her astray Blinded by the way she's treated by the light She turns away They only look at things she's left behnid It's in her eyes As she falls to her knees she begins to see You're all she needs It's out of her hands now and she'll never be the same
