(Turn my world around) Thought that I could hide Oh how I've wasted time I've spent my life running from you I just can't say no Your love won't let me go My shields are defenseless against you Lost in the dark 'Till your love dawned in my heart Filled all the hollow And you freed my pent-up soul It's so hard to believe You're here with me now Make me feel so alive I've got to let it out Ex-tra-ord-in-ar-y You're bringing me out Filled my heart with your love And turned my world around I've been here and there Oh I've looked everywhere But nothing can compare to you You know my heart I want to be where you are I'm hopeless without you How'd you teach this heart to love Oh, you don't need love You've got yourself And that's good enough The fool lives life For no one else The slave to love Finds real freedom, yeah

3.
I found a better life in your arms And now I'm movin' on with A brand new start Nothing can stop what's started In my heart Oh I'm glad your love came my way, yeah I never want to be alone again Here's my declaration of dependence Without your love I ain't got a chance Yeah your love is life to me Love's taken over (I found a better life in your arms) Your love's taken over (I'm movin' on with a brand new start) Love's taken over (Nothing can stop what's started in my heart) Love's taken over (I found a better life in your arms) I movin' on gonna scale these walls I'm pressin' on now with a full assault Nothin' can stop what's stirrin' in my heart I've got a fever for life again

Honestly, can I tell you where I'm at Honestly, can I pull the curtain back Will you run if you see how weak I am If you don't see the real me You won't see what mercy's done If you don't see my weakness You won't see what love has won If you don't see the distance from the darkness to the sun You won't see Honestly Honestly, I'm growing sick and tired Honestly, it hurts too much to hide Brokeness that's killing us inside Let the light escape From these holes inside my soul When I start to break Then grace begins to flow Let the light escape From this wounded place inside my soul Honestly If you don't see the real me You won't see what grace has done If you don't see my weakness You won't see what love has one If you don't see the distance from the darkness to the sun You won't see

This ain't how it was supposed to be Another dark cloud fallin' down over me How could you just leave me scared here out on my own Lord please don't fail me now I've got nowhere left to go When the world's crashing down And time and luck have all run out Well come what may You're still gonna hear me say I'm not finished with you... Not even close You think you got me where you want me to be Here with my hands tied petrified, can hardly breathe (Well hear me) You got the battle but I'm winnin' the war Yeah you can knock me flat out But I'll get up I'll never stay down

This is where my ego ends This is where freedom begins Here's where I jump In your arms I'm done with livin' alone I'm done with missin' the boat I've had enough Where I end's where you start Why is it so hard to learn to let go I surrender my life All I have is yours I'll go wherever you go Give you my heart and my soul Nothing can take me away Now and forever I'm yours My life was nothin' before Your love has taken me home I know I'll never look back Now and forever I'm yours Oh no one knows me like you Yeah no one cares like you do There's no one else, who loves me like You do So why should I be afraid To give my whole life away Not going back Not going back to ok When the world is in my hands And I go on my own again I know you're still with me When I feel your love is gone No strength to carry on I know you'll never leave me
7.
Give it to me, give me a sign Give me something real I can't deny Feelin' asleep, buried alive Give me something real, bring me to life Just can't seem to find it on the left Just can't seem to find it on the right side I'm just left right here now in the middle feeling a need I ain't gonna set for somethin' less I'm done with collectin' days of regret If you've got to give or take away, come bring it on me This is the end of me...

What if the end is just the beginning What if the stars were meant to be reached What if your heart was made to be broken You've nothing to give, that's all that you need You are the one who's breaking my heart all over again Nothing I do or say can change your mind You are the one who's given me more than I could repay You lived your life so I could live mine My heart has done all my hands never dare to Fooling my mind to believe we were free Love came in like a whisper screaming "Your guilt and your shame were meant for me!" We are free to fail... You are the one who's taken my heart all over again You are the one who's given me life You are the one who's given me more than I could repay You lived your life so I could live mine We are free to fail now We're starting over
9.
We once were un-separate-able We were in love In our eyes, we were invincible Then push came to shove Oh I say, when will we say enough We cannot save ourselves This love has gone farewell It's so hard to face it But when will we say enough Oh we cannot change it now Past love is in the ground It's so hard to face it But when will we say enough Well it's not like, like it used to be We both have changed See these moments Well they don't feel the same We're both to blame I'll ask you, oh I say When will we say enough Oh I see them now Those memories surround Our hearts forever bound No one could break our vow Then the rain came pouring down and now When will we say enough We cannot save ourselves...

This is so hard for me I don't no where to begin I need to be set free No, I just can't let you in To hurt you or make you angry You know I'd never do But what you deserve is my whole heart I can't give that to you Please tell me how much is it going to take To bring the peace, to soothe the pain If we trust the heart, oh will it find it's way to wisdom Or just a fool's mistake Bye, bye My heart's gone off on it's own Heartbreak From love that always slips away What brings a change of heart Is my heart really mine Does it beat just to take me over Can it be satisfied My heart is first to love And first to throw love away My mind tries to explain To make some sense of heart's ways My mind poses will the question Can heart be blamed or tamed Heart grins and says, "Come bring it on, you'll never make me change" Come take my heart, come take my soul Come give me peace, give me love, give me hope Come fill my heart, come fill my soul Come bring me peace, give me life, make me whole No more heartbreak...

I've got no song to sing But the one you've given me You're words lead me to peace They echo through my soul If I listen, I hear you singing "You're not alone You're not alone I'm here, I'll never let you go" In my heart I hear you sing A sweet melody Your promise to me Near or far, I'm where you are I know you'll never let me go Never let me go Oh, if they only knew Who I really am They wouldn't take the truth They'd never understand Sometimes people are there for you Until you fall, then they're gone But you're still with me through it all Your song, it is singing Oh I hear it ringing Oh lord I hear you say It will be ok I love you, I need you I long to be with you Oh come take me away Take me away In my heart I hear you sing A sweet melody Your promise to me Near or far I'm where you are I know you'll never let my heart go And I will sing your praise forevermore
12.
All your words were life to me You made me feel, you made me believe Now everything has changed so suddenly All my dreams have come to an end No more strength to start over again Nothing left of memories of when Here I am All alone without you I am hurting I can't breathe, help me Forever gone, you went away Everyday is the first day Hope like a flower is starting to wilt My heart, now a hole that cannot be filled The world moves on but I am standing still Try so hard to figure it out The meaning of life I'm starting to doubt I'm left wanting and guessing It's wearing me down I just can't go on without your love I'm holding on to yesterday, it's not enough Want you to hold me in your arms Hold me in your arms again
13.
Who's hands pave the road to peace with war Who's ears leave hurting cries ignored Who's eyes will judge by what they see Who's heart cares for its own need A change is what we need And change begins with me It's our time now What are we waiting for It's our time now It's our time to stand up I don't want to waste my life Help me live it in love It's our time now Our time now My heart can forgive the darkest deed My hands can meet the greatest need My mouth can lift the spirit high My eyes can see beauty inside
