Breaking Me Down Lyrics

Break the balance down
That's no way to go about it
Beautiful the sound
I heard those shackles hit the ground
You got me drowning in Your ocean

Chorus
Love's breaking me down
Like waves to stone, over and over
Your love's breaking new ground
Changing my every way

Tear these towers down
And all that I built for myself
Lay a new foundation
I know You're not done with me yet
You got me drowning deep in Your ocean

Chorus

You've got me living, truly living

Feels Like Winter Lyrics

can't say what brought me down this far
It's complicated
Face down and bleeding from this war
Could you forget about figuring me out
And be glad I made it
From face down and bleeding from this war
From this war, from this war

Chorus
And it feels like winter
On a perfect summer day
If I convinced my heart to believe my mind
It might just go away

I can't say the last time I really smiled
It takes a lot now
When you're face down and bleeding from a war
Well I know exactly where I've been
And I can't go there again
I need a lot more, I need a lot more than thoughts
I need your touch in my war

Chorus

When it feels like winter
Would You come and save the day
When You touch this heart
I know You really love me
And You'll never go away

And it feels like winter
On this perfect summer day
'Cause You convinced my heart to know You really love me
It might just go away
Might just go away

Headed Lyrics

Anchor up, tow me out of this pit I'm dreading
Turn this vessel's path around
I look above, I'm in love
With the pace you're setting
From this stream we're ocean bound

Chorus
And I know for sure I'm headed straight for the edge
And I know for sure I'm headed straight for the edge
'Cause that's just where You are

I'm the son, you're the King
Makes me royalty now
It's no title without pain
In the end it is well
After storms and beatings
These muddy rivers empty out

Chorus

That's where You are

Chorus

Anchor up, tow me out of this pit I'm dreading

How They Love Each Other Lyrics

Attitude check everybody's got x-ray vision
Spot a fake, walk away
'Cause he's not worth my time, precious attention
Does it make you scared to think you stand for something bigger?
But will I ever know 'til you say it with your life?

Chorus
How they love each other
How they shine
And they follow one
We would like to know ourselves

Not your fancy talk, not your upright walk
They're not enough, so chalk one up for love again
Here's the same old good news
When you love, you give
And you can never lose, no never
Does it make you scared to think you matter in the bigger picture?
But will I ever know 'til you say it with your life?

Chorus

Make a believer
Make a believer out of me
Just give me a reason
Give me a reason

Chorus

Iliad Lyrics

Iliad, tragedy, miseries all subtracted
A chosen one, I'm a father's son
I'm the one You attracted Chorus
For this lame world
Where the blame grows
You died upon it to redeem it
I believe it, I receive it
So forever You'll inhabit me

You wouldn't walk out on this tragedy
Never give up on Your Iliad
You suffered for the victory
'Cause it's always been Your labor of love

Chorus

When the story of love began
From the starting until the end
The hero wins
Come tomorrow no one knows
But when everything unfolds
The hero wins
For this lame world
Where the blame grows
You died upon it to redeem it

Chorus

In America Lyrics

Is it better not to look back or should we dust off our journals
Stare deep through the feedback for the new day
Like the distortion has things to say
Is it better to ignore it, that these bomb shelters are built of sand
Scoring themes from our views, making movies of tragic news
Does this helpless picnic have its own Neverland

Chorus
America never hurts
They say America never cries
Like no one's lost in America
No one's lost in America

Listening to pink noise, we make mirrors out of shop windows
No one dares to pull the red card, conscience is scared by truths we'd discard
And now we've Arilius, but soon comes Decious,
and perhaps Constantine is a devil
Keen on making things easy

Chorus

Come alive, come alive

The prophet's cello's silenced, if love burns us down to violence
If the whims of the nations cater elation will we not need a soul to blame?
He has to take it all alone
Is His move political, a play for the people? No
He takes one for the little guy
He takes a hit for the little guy

They say America never hurts
They say America never cries,
Like no one's lonely in America
Like no one's lonely in America

Last Night's Daydream Lyrics

From my sleep tonight
I woke to a frightening sight
All the best of me
Held up to Your perfect light
I reached for Your hand by moonlight
Could anyone ever match Your love
Of Your mercy's touch, Your kindness

Chorus
While the world is asleep now
I'm wrapped up in wonder
Of all I could never dream
That night is a treasure
I want to remember
I want to forever be
In last night's daydream

So steeped in Your presence
Like pinches, it woke me from a dream
Now I see the paint run
On the water-color kingdom
And I want to believe again
Just like the first time
When from my eyes
You took the scales that blinded
Here am I for Your sending
Could anyone ever match Your love
Of Your mercy's touch, Your kindness

Chorus

When I come to the end of me
I'm relying on someone other
Come to the end of me
I'll be living for someone stronger

Chorus

The world is still sleeping
I want to remember

Starspin Lyrics

Surely the heavens declare the glory of God
The open skies proclaim the work of His handsThey never stop putting His knowledge on display
All through the night and through the days
Listen to the stars sing
We are the dreamers from the other side
We are the dancers who cannot be denied
We are messengers that no one can hide
And there is no language on earth
Where their voices are not heard, they sing

Chorus
People, people, surely the Lord lives
People, people, heaven and earth are His
People, people, lift your souls in wonder

The stars watch the sky and angels gather the wind
A call to the loveless, the listless, the dim
The King is alive, the King is alive, the King is alive
Now we are the stars and if we're to shine
We'll hold out the truth, as we give lift up the light
We are worshipers that no one can hide
And there's no language on earth
Where His praises are not heard, we sing

Chorus
Chorus

And there's no language on earth
Where His praises are not heard, we sing
Surely the Lord lives
Heaven and earth are His
Lift your souls in wonder, in wonder

Stone Lyrics

So much for fame and things you can lose
So much for substitutes
So much for the strain of playing a game
Where champions always lose everything
I won't treat Your love
Like an adolescent fling
'Cause when everyone's gone
You're the only one who stays

Chorus
I'd rather be Your stone
Than light up another's sky
I'd rather be Your stone
'Cause all your stones become your diamonds

You gave me a name I could never gain
With even my college try
Convinced by Your touch, it was more than enough
I'm leaving old treasures in the dust
'Cause I found this pearl
I'd give everything to have, I have it

Chorus

Out of darkest deep, You dig me up
And You crush me and You lift me up
And to give You thanks
I can only love You more

Chorus

Walls Lyrics

The walls are all surrounding
What's behind the paint?
I put up all my hangings,
But do they hide the stains?
All the pictures on the paper
Never changed the way I look inside
I'm surfacing to the light

Chorus
Walls peeling around me
Crumbling, falling
Can't hold them up
Walls peeling around me
We're standing so proudly
Can't hold them up to Your light

The truth is now likening
The rich to the beggars
A name is just a name
When you're powerless and pained
And shalom's far away
See, the mighty walls will tremble
With nothing left to keep this front alive
Held up to the light

Chorus

Chorus
Walls all crumble around me
Tumbling, falling
Can't hold them up
As hard as I try
Walls, peeling around me
And you see through the proudest
And I can't hold them up to Your light
Held to the light

What's It Like Lyrics

In my life all the strife is getting in the way
Frankly I did not plan on getting hurt today
From Your chair in the clouds
Benevolent are Your ways
While the beggar bleeds, the children play
Everyone wants to know why
Isn't it always the question?
How do You know my condition?
You came down to me to know what it's like
To know what it's like to hurt
You came down to me to know what it's like
To know just what it's like to
Be me, to be us
(To be one with the dust and to be lost)
(To be one with the dust and to be lost... to be found)

In the wake of the last decades and centuries past
Who's to blame for this mess?
And who's gonna take the rap?
We're quick to judge and discard
A God who lets you choose whom and what to love
Isn't it always the question?
Do You really know my position?

You know what it's like to thirst, to bleed
You know what it's like
