Better Than This Lyrics

Help me could something so right
Be so tainted a breif intermission
Between feeling and reason
I promise beneath the shrink wrap
And the price tag there's something
Worth your while at least there used to be

CHORUS(*):
Believe in me believe in love
Believe in anything that's better than this

CHORUS:
I-e-I-e want You
But I just can't ask You
Cause I don't even know You now
(want to know You)
Caught in this tailspin
And I'm blinded by my sin
And I still don't know You now
(want to know You)

I'm writing a book but it's got no pages
Cause You were all I had to say
And I guess I have walked away from You
I'm too slow, there's God on the phone
Well leave a message and I'll get back to You soon

CHORUS(*):
Don't believe in me please believe in love
Believe in God it's better than this

CHORUS

CHORUS:
Hhh--I-e-I-e want Yoooouuuu
Hhh--I-e-I-e need this
(want to know You)
And I am praying for it
I still, I don't know You
(want to know You)

Nnnnnnooooowwwwwww
(want to know You)
Nnnnnnooooowwwwwww
(want to know You)

I wanna bleed
I wanna see
I wanna know You
I wanna know You
I wanna know You
I wanna...

Daddy's Girl Lyrics

nine o'clock on a saturday night
no one else is home
and the lights are off
you're drunk again
and you stumble in to the family
ah the family room
you look up at the picture on the wall
you see daddy his wife and his little girl
when are you gonna realize you're not that girl
you're no longer his little dady's girl
CHORUS:
you need to fly
spread your wings keep flying higher
you don't need to cry
no time for tears that has passed you by
has passed you by
you know you want to be a painter
he's got you working nine to five at McyDees
he says you gotta be more realistic
"don't you know that dreams are only dreams"
but he says that he knows what's best for you
but he, he doesn't know you at all no
he says, he says, he says all kinds of things now
he says he'll be there when you fall
CHORUS:
but you need to fly
spread your wings keep flying higher
you don't need to cry
no time for tears that has passed you by
has passed you by
has passed you by, by
(na na na na na na no no)
has passed you by
(na na na na na na na no)
BRIDGE:
dear God help me out now
oh Lord save my soul and you'll pray
dear God I'm all alone now
but I don't want to be alone anymore
spread your wings
no I don't want to
be alone anymore no
eeeehhhhh eehh
aaaahhhhhh
you need to get out from under his wings
or you're never going to learn to use your own, no
you need to stop listening to everything
or you're never going to make it alone
don't want, don't want to be alone anymore
don't want to be alone anymore

Don't want, don't want to be alone anymore

Everything (Apron Full of Stains) Lyrics

She walks to the table with an apron full of stains
And asks "hey sir what can I get for you today?"
I try to be polite and make nice conversation but
The foods no good she doesn't seem to even notice me here
Her shoulders slumped I see her
Tear stained eyes head back through
The double swingin doors serving pies
Was not her goal in life
I leave a tip like I think Jesus would and smile
"thanks alot, have a nice day" and I'm on my way
Jesus what would you do?
Can you teach me how to love like You? ohh...

CHORUS:
I wanna give you everything
But I've got nothing of my own at all
And if I give what I have not got
Will You fill me up and make me whhooolleee yeah

I see him sittin by the side of the
Building near the street sign
He's got a sign saying "I will work for food"
He looks up with his glazed over eyes says
"how 'bout a dollar for a veteran, a fellow american"
Empty stomach, empty mind, empty soul
Have I got the time to feed him a little broken bread? no.
Do I toss up a prayer as I walk on by, or give him a tract
And a weak fake smile or do I take
The time to show him a little love?
Don't feel like I've got anything
To give, so I guess I've got nothing to lose
Yeah-e-yeah

CHORUS

I come back a couple weeks later see the
Same apron, same stains, same splint end hair pulled back
She comes near and says "hey mister, your smile picked me up
The other day, just thought I'd say thanks"
Well I don't know why it takes all
My effort to try-y-y yeah-e-yeah

CHORUS

Make me whole, make me whhhoooollleee

She walks to the table with an apron full of stains
And asks "hey sir what can I get for you today?"

Forgive Lyrics

CHORUS:
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father don't leave me, I hate what I've become

How can you see me as I really
Am and still call me pure?
And still call me pure
Cause I am lukewarm I am icy I'm
Everything but what I believe
I'm everything but sure

CHORUS:
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father believe me, I hate what I've become
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father don't leave me, just hold Your broken son

Cowering in the corner a child is weeping now
He's trying hard to pray but the
Words just aren't tumbling out
Everyone I know is breaking my heart
And everyone begins with me
It's just a lonely people in a dirty place
I'm as mesed up as I could be

CHORUS

BRDIGE:
I'm slinking through the shadows
I've been standing in the light
I'm tired of being who I'm not
Will ya love me tonight

CHORUS:
Forgive me
I do know what I've become
Father forgive me, I do know
Father don't leave me,
Just hold Your precious son

Hold me
Please don't leave me
Just love me
Love me

Hold me
Please don't leave me
Just believe me
God just love, love, just love me
Just love me
Just love me

I Need You Lyrics

CHORUS:
I need You
I need You
I need You
I need You
I've done wrong

I gave myself away like candy in a parade
I can smell the dirt on my hands
But soap and water is useless

Is this a silly waste of time
Or am I losing my mind
Or is there something
Here I might find

CHORUS:
I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Come to me now

I can see the mountians from my window
But the door has eluded me
There's blisters on my wrists
From these chains I can't shake off

Is this a silly waste of time
Or am I losing my mind
There must be something
Here I might find

CHORUS

I need You a-whoa

BRIDGE:
I can't tell You You should love me
I can't show You You should care
There are no reasons that I can give You
But then again (then again)
(You never asked)
You never asked, You never asked

CHORUS

I need You whoa
(need You)
I need You oh
(need You)
(need You)
Oh I I I need You
(need You)
(need You)
I I I need need I need You
(need You)
(I need You)
Hi-hoa hi-awhoa need You
(need You)

If Tomorrow Was Forever Lyrics

I went to bed angry
I woke up on the floor
I probably could have helped it
I could have prayed some more
But I was tired
I didn't get enough sleep the night before
And so I'm sorry
I feel about three inches tall
I wish I could crawl back under the covers
I went to bed angry

If tomorrow was forever
Could then I forgive you
If heaven came and got me
Would my heart be right with you
I've been praying for heaven to come
Now I don't know
Cause I see something in me
That's part of you
And it makes me mad (sad) (sad) (sad)
What would I do?

CHORUS:
If tomorrow was forever
Forever
Ooohhhhhhh lllaaaaaa
Oooooohhhhhh lllllaaaaa
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you

Could tomorrow be forever
Could tomorrow be forever
(forever)
Could tomorrow be forever
Ooooohhhhhhhhhhhh

Could I love you
(could I love you)
Could I love you
(could I love you)
Could I love you
(could I love you)
Could I...

Could I love you
Oohh laa laaaa
Oohhh la laaaa
Ooohhh la laaaa
Ooohhh la laaaa

Running From The Sun Lyrics

Some things seem too easy
Because we make them so hard
"thanks for the branch but hold on
Think I can kick this quicksand yet"

Faith is a stepstool that I think I can jump

CHORUS:
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And dawn is breaking in my back again
And I'm growing tired, I'm growing tired

I'd like to watch myself on TV
Without playing the part
I'm Dr. Jekyll and I am Mr. Hyde
I've got Jesus on my skin and
Sometimes someone else inside

I'm not Bruce Wayne so one of us is gonna have to die

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I can't love, I can't live
I can't take, I can't give
I can't move or step back
I can't fill what I lack
I can't feel, I can't touch
Can't even walk without a crutch
And I think I use the word "I" too much

CHORUS:
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And dawn is breaking in my back again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
Dawn is breaking in my back again
And I'm growing tired, I'm growing tired

Someone To Believe Lyrics

Sometimes I feel that I'm the only one in a crowded room
I talk you talk we'll talk but no one listens
And sometimes I just leave well
Maybe you'll notice but probably not
I'd just like to take you aside and make you look at me
Really look at me

CHORUS:
Could I tell you that I'm crazy
Would you buy into my lies
If I told the truth as far as I knew
Could you look in my eyes and seeee
Someone you could believe in
Could you see someone you could call a friend

Two thousand years a man died and He's the only One
Who really knows how I feel (knows how I feel)
Jesus knew loneliness too as He hung on a cross despised
His closest friends said they didn't even know Him
Makes me wonder how much they really did
At least I've got you to believe in me
Cause we both believe in Him

CHORUS

La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di
La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di

BRIDGE:
He was a man of sorrows
When I look in the mirror
That's what I see
We met through our sorrows
But His looovvveee is what's accepting me

CHORUS(*):
Could I tell you that I'm crazy
Would you buy into my lies
If I told the truth as far as I knew
Could you look in my eeeyyyeesssss
Yeah-e-yeah

La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di
La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di

La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di
La dee di di di
La dee di di di di di
(la dee di di di)

Song And Dance Lyrics

I'm standing at a mirror
I don't know who I'm looking at
This part I play that I didn't write
Have I gone too far to come back

I wish you could see the real me
More than just this song and dance
But that's all you saw to begin with
So that's what I gave you at last

CHORUS:
I'm empty as a desert well
But I built the walls of this mirrored cell
It was a spiraled game of show and tell
And you beat me every time
(every time)

I feel as easy to see through
As a candidate for political office in DC
Yet my loneliness is carefully hidden
Though I'm dying to let it be seen yeah-e-yeah

CHORUS(2x)

BRIDGE:
Tear me down
See me naked
This tired facade
Is wearin thin yeah
It's wearin thin
Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah
Wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahh
Wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahhh
Wwhhoo-hhhhhhhhoooooooo

CHORUS

I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empttyyy (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)

What I Cannot Earn Lyrics

I try, I try
But I fail, I fail
It's like walking on ice in socks
It's like breathing underwater
I try

I live, I live
And I breathe, I breathe
But is living really life
And is breath really breathing
Without You

When will I learn to accept my mistakes?
When will I learn to accept Your grace?

And if I was perfect well I wouldn't need mercy
And if I was perfect I wouldn't
Need God - I wouldn't need God

When will I learn to accept my mistakes?
When will I learn to accept Your grace?
Your grace?
Your grace?

What's Ailing Norman Lyrics

CHORUS:
and I see (I see) (I see)
that I need (I need)
to end this game of
charades before you
and I see (I see) (I see)
what you need (you need)
cause I've been there before

hey there pal you've got that look on your face
know you've been hearing everything I say
I know what's wrong but I'll play dumb
hey there pal what's the matter Norman
did you get some bad news
tell me do you got 'them blues'
CHORUS
I love this game who's wrong and who's right
send in the clowns with their masks of white
thier caked with lies and truth and pain
I'm slowly unmasked and I'm faced with shame
is it your mommy or your dad
or did another friend go bad
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
you say "you've got the nerve to ask me what's wrong?
the knife you used was four letters long and do you cry?"
what's ailing Norman?
CHORUS
