Another Day Lyrics

I totally identified with this song because we so often focus on all the things we need and want and hope to accomplish that we miss out on the simple blessings we have every day, like the sunrise and just being able to breathe. We take so much for granted, as if we're promised another day, but we see stories all the time of people who didn't have another day. This song is a call to be thankful and remember the gift of life.

(Stephanie Lewis/Guy Zabka)

Been driving through the night
I pull up and see the lights
This is the place that I call home
I watch you as you sleep
Think of all you mean to me

Touch your face
Kiss you softly
Before I go to sleep pray under the stars
Search my soul and check my heart
And thank God for

Another day
Another chance to love the ones I love
To find my way
To laugh, to dance
Watch the sun come up
Another day I get to live
As if
Every breath could be the last I take
I get another day

I've got a hand that I can hold
Someone who knows my soul
A safe place to lay my head at night
So why do I forget
How much I've been blessed in life
Forget what means the most to me

As I'm waking up I feel my beating heart
So grateful that I've come this far
And thank God for

Chorus

To make somebody smile
Go the extra mile
Take a wrong and make it right
And try to touch somebodys life

I get another day.....

Awaken Lyrics

This song really represents where I've been, and it also makes me realize that I never want to get to the place where I stop waking up to something new. I hope this song encourages others to wake up-maybe to some things kept silent, dreams unfulfilled, fears, insecurities, or something someone has been shutting out, pretending it doesn't exist. It's okay to wake up to those things and let our God turn them into good.

(Natalie Grant, Joy Williams, Rob Graves, Jason McArthur)

Sometimes I feel like I'm just existing
I'm not really living
I'm only watching the time slip away
I've forgotten who I am in you
I'm not who I'm meant to be
I'm drifting farther away from my destiny

Chorus:
Awaken my heart, awaken my soul
Awaken your power and take control
Awaken the passion to live for you, Lord
Awaken me
My soul is longing, my heart is searching
I'm desperate for you to move
Give me a hunger, pull me closer
I'm crying out to you
Awaken my heart, awaken my soul
Awaken your power and take control
Awaken the passion to live for you, Lord
Open my eyes so I can see your presence
Dwelling inside
Wake me up, cause I can't live another minute
If I'm not shining your light
Awaken my heart, awaken my soul
Awaken the passion in me
Lord, awaken me to live my destiny
Lord, awaken me and shine your light through me
Lord, awaken me to live my destiny
Lord, awaken me and shine your light through me

Captured Lyrics

(Bernie Herms, Rob Graves, Jason McArthur)

This song is the kind of music I always wanted to make but never have. It has a driving, modern rock sound that just grabs you. But then, underneath all that, is a really great praise and worship lyric. The message is simple: we can run all we want to, but we can never get away from God's presence. That's a pretty hard truth to wrap your mind around at times.

It must mean something
When I close my eyes
Visions of you come to me and flood my mind
It must mean something
When my heart is true
All that I can think about is you

(Chorus)
Everywhere I go you find me
Even when I run
I'm captured
I'm captured in you
Everywhere your love surrounds me
I cannot escape
I'm captured
I'm captured
It must mean something
When I'm standing still
Yours is the only voice I wanna hear
It must mean something
That I've come this far
Lifting up my hands and offering my heart

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)

You are the sky
You are the sea
You are the air I wanna breathe
You're everywhere
Your love last forever
And if I fall
You won't let go
You hold me when I can't hold on anymore
You reach out and rescue me

(Repeat Chorus)

Held Lyrics


Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we'd be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
Were asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it's unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held
If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our Savior
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held

Repeat Chorus

Home Lyrics

(Natalie Grant, Trina Harmon, Bernie Herms)

Not long after I returned from India to experience firsthand what is being done to address the human trafficking issue, my husband and I went to Los Angeles to write with Trina Harmon. The morning we were scheduled to write with her, the top story in The Los Angeles Times was about a sex trafficking ring that was busted in Anaheim, across the street from Disneyland. The article profoundly impacted me, and I found myself telling Trina about my own experience in India. She said, "We need to write a song for those girls," and she just started writing out all these lines-pretty princess, broken crown-a lot of great word pictures, and it eventually became "Home." We all need a place to belong, to know that we are safe; a place where we can discover our dreams and deal with the brokenness in our lives.

You keep watching the rain come down (yeah)
Pretty princess, broken crown (yeah)
And your dreams have all burned out
But don't you know that they brought you
Here somehow, all you need to know is....

Chorus:
You're home, where secrets are told
See a new world unfolding
Where hearts are one, the pain's undone
And your finally belonging, yeah
And you need to know, you need to know
You're home, yeah
You need to know, you need to know
You're home
So take your coat off and stay awhile (yeah)
What made you cry can make you smile again
You can hold your head up high
'Cause don't you know that you
Oh, girl you were born to fly
When you realize.......
You're home, where secrets are told
See a new world unfolding
Where hearts are one, the pain's undone
And your finally belonging, yeah
And you need to know, you need to know
You're home, yeah
You need to know
All you really need to know is you're home
Welcome home
Everything's gonna be alright
'Cause you're home
Feel the sun, your day has come
You're not alone
You're home

Make Me Over Lyrics

(Natalie Grant, Bernie Herms, Stephanie Lewis)

Our culture is obsessed with reality makeover shows and the outward appearance of beauty. But before we makeover the external, it's so much more important to look at what's happening in our spirits. At the time I wrote this song, I was desperate for a spiritual makeover, and so this is my way of expressing that need-it's my heartfelt prayer.

I've been silent instead of speaking up
Gave my advice instead of giving love
I have been unfair, faithless and unkind
I have shut my eyes just so I would stay blind
It's not what I'm meant to do
Cause I wanna honor You

Make me over, make me new
Make me a mirror, a reflection of You
Take me all apart, take me to Your heart
And pull me closer
Oh Jesus, make me over

Take away the pride that whispers in the dark
Take the stone out of the middle of my heart
Hidden underneath my insecurities
Is the servant that You've destined me to be
Day after precious day
I get in my own way

So make me over, make me new
Make me a mirror, a reflection of You
Take me all apart, take me to Your heart
And pull me closer
Sweet Savior, make me over

I am only made of Your imagining
I'm dust and clay on the wind
Wash me in the river of Your sacrifice
Until I'm changed, purified

Take me all apart, take me to Your heart
And pull me closer
My Jesus, make me over

Make me over
Make me over
Oh, make me over, Jesus

Something Beautiful Lyrics

All of us have come to a place where we feel like we've been knocked down, like we don't exist for anything, like we can't make a difference, like we don't matter. So this is just a fun way of reminding us that God created our lives individually, specifically for something beautiful.

Words & Music by:
Matthew West
Chance Scoggins

This is a song for anyone whose ever been
Knocked down and can't get back again
Stuck in the corner, can't move forward
All alone and you think you're going nowhere
This is a song for anyone whose ever stood underneath the sun
And felt so small, two feet tall and so out of place

He sees you - He knows you - He loves you
And He wants you to know that

The life that you've been living, the days that you've been given
Were made for something beautiful
Life - don't let it pass you by
Because you were created for something beautiful

Heaven holds a dream that's just for you
And there are things only you can do
So step by faith, put the past away so step by faith, don't be afraid
It'll take you to a better day put the past and your fears away
Second to minute to hour to life
Time always seems to fly
It's on the go and before you know
Your days are through

But he sees you - He knows you - He loves you
And he wants you to know that

The life that you've been living, the days that you've been given
Were made for something beautiful
Life - don't let it pass you by
Because you were created for something beautiful

What are - you waiting for
What are you - waiting for
What - are you waiting for
There's something beautiful

The Real Me Lyrics

(Natalie Grant)

God has a divine purpose for our lives, and there's such comfort and peace in knowing that even when our lives are a mess, He sees the incredible beauty underneath. This song reflects my own journey of self-discovery and what God has shown me about who He is and who I am.

Foolish heart looks like we're here again
Same old game of plastic smile
Don't let anybody in
Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
How much will they take before I'm empty
Do I let it show, does anybody know?

Chorus:
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me
Painted on, life is behind a mask
Self-inflicted circus clown
I'm tired of the song and dance
Living a charade, always on parade
What a mess I've made of my existence
But you love me even now
And still I see somehow
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me
Wonderful, beautiful is what you see
When you look at me
You're turning the tattered fabric of my life into
A perfect tapestry
I just wanna be me
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me
And you love me just as I am
Wonderful, beautiful is what you see
When you look at me

What Are You Waiting For Lyrics

(Matthew Gerrard, Bridget Benenate, Steve Booker)

When I was just discovering the whole human trafficking issue, I thought, "You get up on stage every night and feel like you are motivating other people, but what are you doing with your own life other than trying to be a motivator? What are you actually tangibly doing to make a difference in the world? You say you want to, so what are you waiting for?"

Sometimes I get that overwhelming feeling
So sad those faces on tv
If I tried to make a difference would it helo anyway
But then I stop and to myself I say

So you wanna change the world
What are you waiting for
You say you're gonna start right now
What are you waiting for
It only takes once voice
So come on now and shout it out
Give a little more
What are you waiting for

Sometimes I feel a little helpless
Seems like I can't do a thing
But anything is possible just you wait and see
Good things happen if you just believe

Chorus

Someday somehow
Gonna take that step
Cause time is ticking away

Right here right now
Before it's too late
Gonna face tomorrow today

Chorus

You Move Me Lyrics

(Barry Weeks, David M. Edwards, Natalie Grant)

This is my love song to the Lord. This record has a lot of issue-driven songs, so I wanted to include a straight-up praise and worship song that simply expresses my love for Jesus.

I stand in awe
That you know my name
Just a glimpse of your love for me
And now I am changed
Becuz you showed me how to walk a different way
I have peace like I never known
I am living

(Chorus)
You move me
Lord you move me
Theres a fire burning in my soul
And its flowing through me
Lord you move me
Lord you move me
Now I must tell the world what I know
You move me

For too many years I have been color blind
Only saw in shades of gray
Stuck in black and white
But by grace you opened my eyes
Now I see the light
And your love has covered my world
And makes my soul cry
(Chorus)

Day after day I'm amazed that you gave your life for me.
When I think of the price that you paid
How can I not say
(Chorus)2x

You move me
Yeah yeah
You move me
You move me
Yes you do
Oh your love amazes me
Yeah yeah yeah
You move me.
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
