This I know, there's a higher place we can go So much more to this life than what you live for I do believe (I do believe) There is a love that sets you free From all your pain (from all your pain) So you can fly again Love's waited here for far too long Real soon I fear love's moving on So here we go, on your mark, get set, let's go Seize the day, make a change from the life I've known I need Your love (I need Your love) To make me whole, to set me free From all these chains (from all these chains) So I can fly again I've waited here for far too long I'm breaking free I'm moving on To the hope that's waiting for me To the life I'm meant to be living To the love You died to give me You can't find me this kind of love here You can't buy me this love anywhere You can't hide from this kind of love, yeah This love comes looking for you I've been weighted here for far too long Been holding on To what You saved me from I've waited here for far too long And I'm breaking free, I'm moving on Yesterday's a million miles away

Let's take a ride through the country side Cool breeze, electric pale blue skies I've been given' keys to this paradise I'm livin' large, it's a good, good life Here we are just wastin' time I can not do one thing to save my life I must be out of my head Must be out of my head tonight wastin' time Let's build a tower up to the sky So close but yet so far behind Can't see where you're goin' when you're walkin' blind You're livin' lies man, just open your eyes Here we are just wastin' time You can not do one thing to save your life You must be out of your head Must be out of your head tonight wastin' time Here and now's where I want to be I know there's something right with me I'm an individual with liberty This is the life someone died to give me Here we are still wastin' time I can not do one thing to save my life I must be out of my head Must be out of my head tonight wastin' time

Hey weatherman, I don't understand I think you said clearly Clear skies was the forecast today (but where did they go?) Well I'm lookin' west, I see cloudy skies at best And to the east storm clouds are headed this way (look out here they come) What good does it do me to worry about tomorrow When It's all in Your hands So where You lead me I'll follow Everything is gonna be just fine You know that nothing can stop me now Rains fallin' from the sky But my day is shining bright This love has gone and turned my world upside down And it's gonna be alright You're givin' up, down in the dumps This life's so rough, too tough Had enough all before you get out of bed (get out of your bed) Lift up your head my dear friend This tunnel does have an end I think I see light ahead (I see light ahead) You're wastin' your time No need to worry about tomorrow It's all in His hands, He will lead will you follow Why won't you just let it go? Stop trying to make it on your own Yeah, you've got something to live for This is the love that put stars in the heavens This is the love that makes life worth livin'

When all around is fading Nothing seems to last When this day is filled with sorrow Still I know with all my heart He's got the whole world in His hands He's got the whole world in His hands I fear no evil, for You are with me Strong to deliver, mighty to save He's got the whole world in His hands When I walk through fire I will not be burned When the waves come crashing 'round me Still I know with all my heart (Strength for today, bright hope for tomorrow)

Excuse me mister, got a little story that I'd like to share Hey little sister, you're so lonely Oh if only you could hear me yeah I found a love that's never gonna let you down (go) It's been a long, been a long, long time since someone's shown love for me Been a long, been a long, long time since someone's shown love for me It's all about love and I want you to know Sweet words of love, can you hear them, baby? Nothing compares This love will never let you go away So tell me brother, lost your lover to another And you can't seem to bear the thought Oh how you've fought for a reason to live Days of joy are few and far between Sweet words of love... Nothing compares This love will never let you go

How suddenly we move from life to death In a moment move from full to nothing left Unshakeable faith, how quickly turns to fear Went from holding you close to wishing You were here What I cannot do is give it all to You It's taking over me Will this sorrow ever leave? No one but You can understand what I'm feeling inside Right now I can barely breathe Let me know You're here tonight Lately I've been letting go of hope Caught between life and love, what I want, and what I know Give this broken heart a reason why And fill it with the strength to say goodbye 'Cause it's so hard to do, to give this all to You Pour down on me like rain and fill this hollow heart again No one but You can understand what I'm feeling tonight Lord, right now I can barely see through the tears that fall from my eyes It's so hard to see You, please come into focus I don't even know if I can find the strength to make it one more day So pour down on me like rain and fill this hollow heart again No one but You can understand what I'm feeling tonight So here I come running back to the arms You've left open wide Just when I need You You come into focus You let me see Your face Know You're here in this place and kiss these tears away

Stand up, please state your name Is there something you'd like to say? Speak up man, you've got the floor Tell me what you believe What is your everything? What do you live and die for? You're livin' life satisfied with second best Livin' life through the dreams of someone else Did you forget who you are? Get on up right now You've got to get on up And scream and shout it out loud It's time to show the world who we are Let's live the life we're meant to live Let's start a revolution Stand up, please plead your case I must say that I am amazed To hear the words that you say Well hey man, it's not too late Here comes a brand new day Don't let this one get away You're livin' life with the weight of yesterday Just let it go today's the only day The only day you can change You know it's not too late To get on up, don't be afraid To show that world who you are Go live the life you're meant to live Go start a revolution

Hold on to my hand, don't be afraid I want to take you to a special place Put a big smile on your face All pain has been erased for good You lie there helpless, you can't go on I'll get you through this Let my words be your song Your strength to carry on 'Cause yesterday is gone Today you're free Close your eyes, fall asleep I am here with you and I'll never leave Close your eyes, fall asleep And I'll carry, carry, carry you I won't let you go So let's move mountains of any size Soar to the heavens and leave this world behind For I have heard your cry All I have is yours, all you had is mine I'll never let you go Forever hold you close There's nowhere you can go to escape from me, my love So fix your gaze above You're in the shadow of my love

Life was a roller coaster ride Pushin' me up, down, side to side I could barely hold on, spinnin' out of control I was lost, lost like a ship in the deep blue sea Like an angel of light You came to rescue me You must have found something special in me Your love's done something to me Changed my life completely You're everything, the one and only thing that I need Everyday I'm walking on sunshine I am Yours and You're mine Tonight I feel like I'm on top of the world As I soar through the starry sky, across the galaxy On the wings of Your love forever carrying me I've only begun, there's so much more to see So lock me up, lock me up, throw away the key I'm a prisoner of love but I never felt so free You've given me more than I ever dreamed I've always felt there had to be something more Worth livin' and dying for Now I know that something is You This is how life was meant to be Just having You here with me, With You, just You together forevermore

I've come to Your throne here so cold and alone I'm calling on Your name I lift my hands to the sky, open wide and I cry Lord take me away Take this heavy heart This weary soul and set them free Remove myself 'till there's nothing left but You alone in me I'm letting go of all that I know I'm holding on to You alone I lay it all down, down here at Your feet I want You alone, You alone (Lord, You alone) If I go to the heavens above Lord, I know You are there If I make my bed in the depths Lord, I know You are there If I rise on the wings of the dawn Or settle on the far side of the sea Even still, Lord, I know You will You will always be there with me
