LYRICS.

So Sorry

 

When I’m lying in my bed and I’m running through the day

And these thoughts they fill my head of what you’d say

There were so many things I shouldn’t have said or done, but now the day is gone

And I’m seeing in the stillness of this moment

That your body it broke to make this crimson clean

That you took on every single thing for me

 

I’m so sorry that I said the wrong thing

Reacted harshly when I should have raised my head to your feet

And I’m so sorry that I didn’t walk by your side

Through that messy trail

And I took it on myself to sort it out

But God I know that’s not what your love’s about

 

 

I’ve been seeing your hand at work in other peoples lives

but so often I don’t see it in mine

And Lord I understand why you call them beautiful

But I don’t see it in me at all

But I’m trying to see things through your eyes

And I understand that you love me for who I am

And I am who you made me to be

 

 

I’m so sorry that I said the wrong thing

Reacted harshly when I should have raised my head to your feet

And I’m so sorry that I didn’t walk by your side

Through that messy trail

And I took it on myself to sort it out

But God I know that’s not what your love’s about

 

 

So take this heart I surrender

And have my life it’s yours

Lead me where you want me

And I will go to sing your name in praise

(x2)

 

I’m so sorry that I said the wrong thing

Reacted harshly when I should have raised my head to your feet

And I’m so sorry that I didn’t walk by your side

Through that messy trail

And I took it on myself to sort it out

But God I know that’s not what your love’s about

Foundations

You don’t build your house on shifting sand

Need to dig into the truth from where time began

Times will get rough no matter where you stand

But with god by your side  he’ll turn bad to good in his plans

 

Gotta build foundations on solid rock

Dig down deeper so the house it won’t get shook

When any storm comes the house no it won’t move

All for the glory of the one who dwells in you yeah

When you call for help but ignore the instruction

You make your bed a sanctuary for destruction

Faith isn’t always what you see you gotta believe

Its a choice to follow his loving command

 

Build the house on a rock it won’t move or quiver or quake

Build the house on shifting sand would be a deathly mistake

Follow instruction heed the words when you calling his name

Don’t lay your head on a bed of thorns and expect not to be in pain

Secret

 

Sometimes we hold a secret that soon becomes a mask

And the mask becomes a symbol of our hidden past

But the maker of you and I knows the trodden road you've walked down

Which your feet tread a crooked path that built the secrets to your crown

 

Reality is harder to see when a web that you have weaved, 

Has funnelled out beyond it's bounds and pulled the roots out from under the tree

But love came through to find it, even in it's tangled web

He knew the truth the realities that never once had been shared.

 

Still His love was wider than the expanse of the sea

He took one look at that crumpled lost heart bent down and wept with thee

Comfort in my comfort mourn with my heart

I'm next to all even those who choose to wander from my path.

 

Reality is harder to see when a web that you have weaved, 

Has funnelled out beyond it's bounds and pulled the roots out from under the tree

But love came through to find it, even in it's tangled web

He knew the truth the realities that never once had been shared.

 

Sometimes we hold a secret that soon becomes a mask

And the mask becomes a symbol of our hidden past

But the maker of you and I knows the trodden road you've walked down

Which your feet tread a crooked path that built the secrets to your crown

Heart

 

When you look in the mirror

What do you see

Who you looking for

Surprised you don’t know who to be

 

Searching for answers

Within an online society

A hundred posed photos

Ain’t what your father sees

 

CHORUS

He’s looking at your heart

Heart

Not your style or your clothes

He’s looking at your heart 

Heart

No prima donna pose

 

Just give him your heart

Heart

BRIDGE 1

So if you want to get it right

Please the one who is the light

Don’t follow that crowd down the wide old road

He said choose the narrow path

Follow even when it hurts

Those desires in your heart he more than knows

 

CHORUS

He’s looking at your heart

Heart

Not your style or your clothes

He’s looking at your heart 

Heart

No prima donna pose

 

Just give him your heart

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE 2 X2 

 

END LINE - 

It's all about your heart

These Four Walls

 

These four walls they keep closing in, sooner or later its sink or swim

Have you got time, have you got time to say a prayer for me

These four walls they keep closing in, sooner or later its sink or swim

Have you got time, have you got time to say a prayer for me

 

These four walls they keep closing in, sooner or later its sink or swim

have you got time, have you got time to say a prayer for me

 

It won't take long just a few simple words

Take that love you say you have for me and put it into works

Throw it up beyond what you can see, only takes a moment to say a prayer for me

 

Good thoughts they are one thing but they ain't gonna clear this mess I'm in, have you got time, have you got time to say a prayer for me

It's all very well yeah checking in, but I'm not seeing what you're thinking Have you got time, have you got time to say a prayer for me.

 

It won't take long just a few simple words

take that love you say you have for me and put it into works

Throw it up beyond what you can see, only takes a moment to say a prayer for me

 

Ooh it might just change everything

Nothing left to loose

It's what I need

Is for someone to say a prayer for me yeah yeah

 

These four walls they keep closing in, sooner or later its sink or swim

Have you got time, anyone got time to say a prayer for me.

Tide

 

I’ve been staring at the numbers

they’re not mine

Comparison steals your joy and scars your soul over time

 

But there’s no correlation between words and action 

and waiting for breakthrough is like walking a thin line

but my faith has grown new branches 

and the blossoms they’re advancing all the time

 

I was lost in an uncertain tide

Didn’t know which way to go or even why

my bones seemed to ache with a weariness inside

frayed beyond the edges had nothing left to hide

 

But you love me with all of my flaws 

and that’s what unconditional love is for

So I’ll keep on going swimming against the tide

heading for your shore

x2

 

Sometimes I see the world through a broken lens

It takes the colours and makes all the light bend

and like a blanket it covers all of life sparkling gems

Until the wind and waves come reset it again

 

So no matter the numbers I gonna keep on going

cos against the odds is my best bet

And when I’m heading for you

It’s the strongest I get

Slow Down

 

Just Slow down

open your eyes and look around

Breathe in and out

Take a moment to think about

All you see and do without even thinking

Just slow down

 

See the birds in the trees

they have all they need

and they fill the air with song

If you consider for a moment

the cycle of the leaves

There’s a season for everything under the sun

so slow down

Just slow down

 

No need to rush or hurry on to the next thing

take a moment to breathe the moment you’re living in

Pressures off, take a pause and look around

More

 

Here I am listing the bad reeling off my failings

The kind of self talk that would make my enemies glad

Then I heard your voice speaking through my noise

Telling me everything you thought

Of how I make you proud

 

huh

 

I didn’t know you’d be like this

Not pointing the finger

Every time I missed (but) 

You are surprising me

Day in day out

You’re love isn’t at all about

Shaking your fists

Or endless retakes

You don’t cringe at my Every mistake

Your heart isn’t frustrated

Your words are as gentle as the breeze

You’re more than I thought you would be

 

Condemning myself for another mistake

Should have known better this time

Back to yelling at myself

If i wasn’t so useless I’d probably be hopeless

Then you cut through my shame and guilt with your Love

 

huh

 

I didn’t know you’d be like this

Not pointing the finger

Every time I missed (but) 

You are surprising me

Day in day out

You’re love isn’t at all about

Shaking your fists

Or endless retakes

You don’t cringe at my Every mistake

Your heart isn’t frustrated

Your words are as gentle as the breeze

You’re more than I thought you would be

 

Oooh x2

 

Only You can make it better

Only you can make me see

Only you can bring the best out of me

Only you can be my shelter

Only you can be my guide

Only you God it’s you by my side

You’re more than I thought you would be yeah

Emmanuel

 

They journeyed from afar

To Bethlehem they came

Turned away by many a selfish man

Until in a barn a manger lay

 

A star shone out

To spread the message across the land

To where a baby lay

His name Emmanuel

 

Jesus Christ is he

Rejoice angels let the world see

Jesus Christ our king

His name Emmanuel

Jesus Christ is he

Rejoice angels let the world see

Jesus Christ our king

His name Emmanuel

 

A star Shone out

To spread the message across the land

To where a baby lay

His name Emmanuel

 

Jesus Christ is he

Rejoice angels let the world see

Jesus Christ our king

His name Emmanuel

For Granted

 

You Love me at my worst

Even when I don’t deserve

You search out my hidden lights

Even those I’ve packed away under the dirt

 

And I’m so very sorry, that you had to sacrifice to choose me first

 

I don’t want to take for granted 

The freedom that you gave

Or forget the highest heights

even on my lowest days

I don’t wanna be in a such a hurry

I no longer see the little things

That show me you are here with me

they remind me of your ways

 

You’ve seen me at my darkest

Yet you stay faithfully close by

Even when I pushed against it

You never left my side

 

And I’m so very sorry, that you had to sacrifice to choose me first

Silver Linings

 

The expectation I put on myself is higher than anyone else

and I seem to fall from heady heights each time I think I’ve failed

The temptation to give in can be too real

and discouragement isn’t good to feel

Then I hear you calling softly in my ear

 

It’ll take time

It’ll take time

Don’t expect it in a moment

things are gonna change

Don’t miss the silver linings while the clouds rearrange 

It’ll take time

 

So I gotta learn to see the good in what I’ve done

Not instantly assume that I’ve got it wrong

But seeing the rise and fall of others

As I flatline think I’m going under

Then I hear you calling softly to me in my ear

 

It’ll take time

It’ll take time

Don’t expect it in a moment

things are gonna change

Don’t miss the silver linings while the clouds rearrange 

It’ll take time

 

 

So I’m gonna hold my head up higher

Not listen to the liar

Look up and watch these clouds

I will catch the silver linings

No matter of the timing now

Bridge

 

End line (faded) - 

ITS ALL ABOUT YOUR HEART

Glory Came

 

Through the trials of the journey

Stars that lit angelic choir

There He lay this little baby

Son of God and son of man

 

Holy host now bow before thee

Acclamation of his birth

A saviour sent for all to follow

The righteous of man on earth

 

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

We’ll sing his praise

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

Jesus born to save

 

The Lord he came in fragile flesh

To seek and save all by the cross

But on that day he sent from heaven

Our crowning glory in helpless babe

 

The Lord he came in fragile flesh

To seek and save all by the cross

But on that day he sent from heaven

Our crowning glory in helpless babe

 

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

We’ll sing his praise

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

Jesus born to save

 

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

We’ll sing his praise

Glory came

Glory came

Glory came

Jesus born to save

 

The Lord he came in fragile flesh

To seek and save all by the cross

But on that day he sent from heaven

Our crowning glory in helpless babe
