LYRICS


OVERTAKEN

You’re the thought that I’m always thinking / the love song I’m off-key singing / & my hoping, broken heart it’s all yours

So let me just hear your song to heal me / yeah, you are my only answer / your open arms like magic steal me / turn this fighter into a dancer

Yeah, overtake me

Oceans crash & waves they break / my body fails & lonely soul it aches / but I know this broken heart cures

So let me just hear your song to heal me / yeah, you are my only answer / your open arms like magic steal me / turn this fighter into a dancer

Yeah, overtake me

Wide-eyed like I’ve tried for so long I’m coming home / to your side where I can hide it’s in your arms I’m overtaken

So let me just hear your song to heal me / yeah, you are my only answer / your open arms like magic steal me / turn this fighter into a dancer

Yeah, overtake me

I’m overtaken (x5)


MERCY, MERCY (feat. CORY BRETH)

Hey mercy, lead me / because I can’t see / hey mercy, cover me / because I’m beat & bloody

From falling, from brawling, got me calling & I’m crawling back to you

Oh mercy, mercy / oh mercy, mercy

Hey mercy, break me / because I’m tired of aching / hey mercy, save me / won’t you come & set me free?

From falling, from brawling, got me calling & I’m crawling back to you

Oh mercy, mercy / oh mercy, mercy

Well, you know the fight inside of me / that I’m lost, desperate & needy / & still you show me mercy / & still you show me mercy, mercy

I’m falling, I’m brawling, got me calling & I’m crawling back to you

Oh mercy, mercy / oh mercy, mercy

Because I can’t see (x2)


NOT ENOUGH

It breaks me down, yeah (x2)

It’s night the world’s in bed / but I lie awake instead / looking for your voice, my Lord / fighting voices inside of my head

It’s a restless night of sleep / the day sweeps me off my feet / my own strength is gone / how can I even on? / how can I even carry on?

It’s not enough just to say “I love you” / not enough till I’m falling for you / not enough till I’m bleeding out for you / yeah, it’s not enough, not enough

Making it be faking / ain’t easy when I’m breaking / feels like I blow my cover / every single breath that I’m taking

My heart is heavy, my chest is tight / it all feels just like a fight / my loved ones know I’m frayed / cause I’m pushing them away

It’s not enough just to say “I love you” / not enough till I’m falling for you / not enough till I’m bleeding out for you / yeah, it’s not enough, not enough

I’m not enough, I’m never enough / yet you pour on me your unending love

& it’s enough cause you live “I love you” / it’s enough cause you fell for me / it’s enough cause you’re bleeding out for me / yeah, it’s enough, it’s enough

It breaks me down & it builds me up (x2)


CROWDED ROOMS

Loneliness, do you ever leave easy? / my remedy, I’m right here don’t you see me? / got me so lonely

Do the walls you build bring you any safety? / why do crowded rooms feel the most empty? / got me so lonely

Hey, I see you / you’re just standing there / like you got no clue / but I know that you care

So won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you please just walk with me through these fading years?

Do the voices ever stop talking on the TV? / I turn them up when it feels like you’re leaving / got me so lonely

Do the walls I build bring me any safety? / why do crowded rooms feel the most empty? / got me so empty too

Hey, isn’t it a shame / the way we set ourselves apart / when we both bleed the same / have a little heart

So won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you please just walk with me through these fading years?

Whoa, whoa, got me so lonely / whoa, whoa, got me so empty

I’m so sick of crowded rooms / I’m so sick of these crowded rooms
Broken folks hiding behind their perfect costumes, listen

So won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please / won’t you, won’t you please just walk with me through these fading years? (x2)

Through these fading years (x3)


I DON’T MIND

I don’t mind your teary red eyes / cause I’ve been getting sick of all the dead eyes

I found your note on the table tonight / saying you had no more hope in this life / so I set off to prove it untrue / I drove through the night till I found you / & you were standing there on that cold, grey ledge / crying out feeling shame & regret / the falling tears make you feel like a fool / as they’re falling down like rain into a pool / you say you’re sorry don’t want me to worry / but no one stops cause they’re all in a hurry / so won’t you please just hold on tight / to his love that brings us life

Everything once black & white now feels so grey / compassion passes over but I don’t know what to say / but he’s saying now

I don’t mind your teary red eyes / Cause I’ve been getting sick of all the dead eyes / So come on now we’re gonna shed these lies / Just gotta let it out, let rain your red skies

In this broken world shaped like a cannonball / we’re all trying to mend the cracks of the fall / sooner or later we’re bound to break, aren’t we all? / we’re on our knees in the dark left to crawl / well these breaks are more than we can cast / the pain, the loss, & the haunting past / so carrying the weight of the age old fall / we’re crying out “Lord, please don’t stall”

I don’t mind you bleeding & I don’t mind you torn / cause only in our falling can new life be born / so he’s singing out

I don’t mind your teary red eyes / Cause I’ve been getting sick of all the dead eyes / So come on now we’re gonna shed these lies / Just gotta let it out, let rain your red skies

I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I hope you find that I don’t mind / I don’t mind when you’re breaking up inside / So come on now we’re gonna shed these lies / Just gotta let it out, let rain your red skies

Well, maybe love, you wouldn’t feel so numb / if you could only see how far we’ve come


THE END OF ME

I found myself on this dead end street / under the weight of 14 billion feet / left for dead with the hopes I keep / I’d turn turn back but I’m in too deep / am I in too deep?

I’m at the end of me / I’m at the end of me / what song am I left to sing here at the end of me?

Yesterday hit me with no relent / got my insides just like a car accident / will I ever rise from this blood stained concrete / or brokenness the system I tried to cheat? / system you can’t beat

I’m at the end of me / I’ve been the death of me / what song am I left to sing here at the end of me?

I’m at the end of me / I’m at the end of me / what song am I left to sing here at the end of me?

What song are the broken / what song are the breaking / what song are the hopeless / what song are the aching / what song are the losers / what song are the left behind / what song are the homeless / what song am I left to sing? / at the end of me / at the end of me


ALL FOR YOU (feat. LAURA BETH JOHNSON)

All for you / all for you / all for you

Have you ever thought that every sunrise & sunset was made for you? / or that the starry nights & the oceans were once brand new?

All for you / all for you / all for you

You were destined from day one / cause we are bigger than chance / you come alive when you shine with the son / & with joy the heavens dance (& it’s)

All for you / all for you / all for you

Laura: what joy for those whose god is the Lord / those he has chosen as his inheritance / he doesn’t just look down from heaven & see us because of Jesus / he knows what it is like to be us & leads us / in our sorrows / our joys / our silence / our noise / our sickness / our health / our poorness / our wealth / I give all of myself to know the God who helps / the god whose words are true / & who makes me brand new

If your Creator came a servant / & it was all for you / you can’t say you don’t deserve it / because it was all for you

Laura: the Lord watches over those who rely on his unfailing love / who fear his unfailing love / who succumb to his unfailing love / he rescues them from death / he keeps them alive in times of famine / in times of harvest / in times of oppression / & of expression / & there is no transgression that could lessen his affection / he called me precious possession / he called me clean now God’s perception of me is his son’s perfection / & nothing can break the connection / my face shines with his complexion / I’m under God’s protection / it’s all for you

All for you / all for you / all for you

Every sunrise & sunset / every breath that you take / down to a single heartbeat / He gave so come awake

All for you / all for you / all for you


NO MATTER WHAT

I’m at the end of myself / putting me on the shelf / Lord, I’ve come to You for help / it’s only in Your arms I’m held

I will sing / I will grieve / No matter what / My heart will be on my sleeve

I know you’ve broken my chains / But I keep fighting to keep the remains / Even though I fall every day / And I can’t find the words to pray

I will sing / I will grieve / No matter what / My heart will be on my sleeve

It’s the mountains you’ve gotta climb / That will always be the steepest / And it’s the hearts that you hold tight / That will cut yours the deepest (x2)

I will sing / I will grieve / No matter what / My heart will be on my sleeve (x2)


THE GUNSHOT

These days it’s easier to get up against the wall & to just take the gunshot / cause sometimes it feels like the pain down inside is the only friend I’ve got / these days I’ve just been letting myself hang or becoming my own blood clot / cause sometimes I fall hard to the ground just so in Your arms I might be caught

These days my life, these days this life, these days my life feels a lot like suicide

So please don’t wonder why there are no suits & ties, processions of folks with respects to pay / cause tell me what’s to cry about, tell me what’s to mourn when I do it every single day?

These days my life, these days this life, these days my life feels a lot like suicide

Every breath, another death (x2) / My rivers are running blood red / Every breath, another death

These days my life (I’d rather die), these days this life, these days my life feels a lot like suicide

These days my life (don’t feel like mine), these days this life, these days my life feels a lot like suicide

Feels a lot like someone died / feels a lot like being crucified


FROM HERE ON OUT

From here on out (x2)

I’m sick of a tongue that says one thing / & my wicked heart that says another / I’m sick of making jealous my one love / that sticks closer than a brother

Not gonna wait till these vows are broken / for them to be spoken

Yeah, you have me now / you set my spirit free / Yeah, you have me now / let this be my love decree / from here on out / won’t you come take all of me?

I’m a world apart from where you are / feel far as the sky or a floating star / you will be my only bet / that prize I can’t wait to get

With your heart I won’t be wasteful / in our love I will stay faithful

Yeah, you have me now / you set my spirit free / Yeah, you have me now / let this be my love decree / from here on out / won’t you come take all of me?

I’m feeling so out of place / won’t you come & fill this space? / fighting hard to catch your eye / your look makes me wonder why / maybe we were never apart / have I always had your heart?

Yeah, you have me now / you set my spirit free / Yeah, you have me now / let this be my love decree / from here on out / won’t you come take all of me?


LOVEBIRD (SING OVER ME)

Our cities silence the lovebird / she’s singing out trying so hard to be heard / like love trying to take its flight / yeah, I can hear her but she’s seems so out of sight

We hide behind the crowds, the cars / like no one bleeds but we’ve all got scars / good times in the bottle, sex, it’s life lived through a screen / because sometimes life feels like a bullet to the brain

Redemption come to save us from ourselves / only love that can’t be bought, only love that (freely) sells / lovebird, if we let you in only time will tell / if we let you set us free or live in our own hell (x2)

Sing over me / come set me free (lovebird) (x a lot)

Lord, save me from this hell / pick us up right where we fell / yeah, only time will tell / Lord, save me from their hell / Lord, save me from their hell


ON & ON

Somehow knew I was supposed to write this song / because it was from the heart & isn’t very long / I’ve never been one to go on & on & on except about you

Just another wandering soul looking for peace / wondering when all my wars are gonna cease / I’ve never been one to go on & on & on except about you

So I’ll just keep on holding on / it won’t be long, it won’t be long / on & on / won’t you keep me strong

Just another problem I thought was the fix / is just another problem thrown into my mix / I’ve never been one to go on & on & on except about you

The end is near I can see a light coming / thankfully cause this can all be so numbing / I’ve never been one to go on & on & on except about you

So I’ll just keep on holding on / it won’t be long, it won’t be long / till the dawn / won’t you keep me strong

Holding, holding, I’m holding / on & on & on & on / on & on / won’t you keep me strong

Holding, holding, I’m holding / on & on & on & on / alright, this is going on & on…
