Grace 03:23
VERSE 1: Grace, staring in my face tonight What do i do? I turn my back on You, And try to take what i think You owe. I forfeit my heritage, squander my inheritance Feast in the filth of pigs, and love every minute But now i want to go back home I dont need Your rings or robes. All that i need is Your grace CHORUS: Why am i begging for what You gave me? Why would You die if not to save me? Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now? Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved. VERSE 2: Homeits where i long to be tonight. Safe in Your arms again. Free from the shame of sin, To walk with You hand in hand But here i go again Back to this dirty place, forsaking You to Your face Then crying out for Your grace. CHORUS: Why am i begging for what You gave me? Why would You die if not to save me? Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now? Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved. BRIDGE: I have to believe that You knew what You were doing when You died on the Tree I have to believe that You knew what You were getting into when You offered Your grace to me You knew all Id say, how Id stray away, all i would do before running back to You And begging for grace that You already gave. So put me in my place and show me that im saved. CHORUS: Why am i begging for what You gave me? Why would You die if not to save me? Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now? Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved.

VERSE 1: She sits in the back seat. Its like her face has transparency Because we can all see exactly what shes thinking And we all know she misses him And we all know shes wondering Just how things might have been If she hadnt started noticing CHORUS: Everything else in everybody else Thats making her forget about everything she loves. But everything else in everybody else Could never replace everything she loves. VERSE 2: Well she hates being lonely But always wants to be alone. She thinks shes the only broken lover on this road. And we all know she misses him And we all know shes wondering Just how things might have been If she hadnt started noticing CHORUS: Everything else in everybody else Thats making her forget about everything she loves. But everything else in everybody else Could never replace everything she loves.

VERSE 1: I don't love You though i aim to Though i claim to when i call Your Name. I don't believe You. I just deceive You And pretend sewn leaves like Eve's can hide my shame Or like You are to blame. CHORUS: I would love to come before You And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet. But I'm afraid I'm a little too late Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street For a price that cant be beat. VERSE 2: You don't amaze me. You don't even phase me. All my words are just hollow phrases. I must be crazy to think that maybe Giving You all my love could leave me lazy Or keep me complacent. CHORUS: I would love to come before You And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet. But I'm afraid I'm a little too late Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street For a price that cant be beat. BRIDGE: I'm not broken and I'm not breaking. My eyes are open and I stand naked. I'm not overwhelmed. I'm not consumed. I'm not all these things that I say to You 'Cause i lie to You. CHORUS: I would love to come before You And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet. But I'm afraid I'm a little too late Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street For a price that cant be beat.

Fine 03:42
VERSE 1: I'm beginning to see how you perceive me, And I am the one who can't finish anything. I guess that's just me. So what can I say? I always up and leave when I don't want to stay. PRE-CHORUS: And I know what you want for me. But you don't see CHORUS: You don't see what I see, looking through your eyes. And you don't hear what I do in your mind. And you need to realize what i just realized, That I am doing fine. VERSE 2: I know what you mean. What you are trying to say. But if its all the same, I don't wanna hear it today. I know you mean well. You just want what's best for me. But consider if you will that I might know whats best for me. PRE-CHORUS: And I know what you want for me. But you don't see CHORUS: You don't see what I see, looking through your eyes. And you don't hear what I do in your mind. And you need to realize what i just realized, That I am doing fine.

VERSE 1: Sin is my labor, and death is my wage But You get every paycheck, and I never get paid. To live is for Jesus, and to die would be gain But still You keep me breathing, day after day CHORUS: And I know I've earned my death A thousand times over and over again But still You keep loving me, loving me Like holes in your hands. VERSE 2: I'm sure You need me like a spear in the side. So why do you believe me, when You know how i lie? You're the only one who sees me Through my foolish disguise Still You wipe these two by fours And tears from my eyes. CHORUS: And I know I've earned my death A thousand times over and over again But still You keep loving me, loving me Like holes in your hands. BRIDGE: You can see right through all the evil things I do And somehow You still love the view So won't You get into all that I cannot undo And somehow change the view. I'm begging You to change the view. CHORUS: I know I've earned my death A thousand times over and over again But still You keep loving me, loving me Like holes in your hands.

VERSE: I love the way you put your little feet on mine When I'm trying to say goodnight. You take me by the hands, and you say lets dance, And we dance all around the room To the sound of this beautiful inaudible tune. CHORUS: That's the way you move me. You prove me wrong When I say I'm tired and I want to go home You shake me. You take me away You make me say that's my favorite song Baby thats my favorite song.

I Am A Man 04:15
VERSE 1: How could I fail to understand You were not a "righteous man?" You were something different. Something more like I AM. But I am so unworthy. So undeserving. I'm just so dirty. Still You came down for me. You walked upon this dirty ground for me. You wore thorns on Your brow for me. CHORUS: What am I supposed to say, when I don't understand? Your way is not my way You are a God, and I am a man. VERSE 2: How could my pride make me forget I'm not the One who was sent? I am someone different; someone more like a man. But You are, You are so holy, surrounded by glory. You're just so worthy. But still, I nail You down for me. I throw You on this dirty ground for me. I push thorns on Your brow for me. CHORUS: What am I supposed to say, when I don't understand? Your way is not my way You are a God, and I am a man.
8.
VERSE 1: If i can say just one thing, let it be Your name Lord If i can hear just one voice CHORUS: Let it be Yours Let Your holiness pour from my lips. May my thoughts be inhabited Lord Let Your glory fall over me Let it be Yours. VERSE 2: If I can sing just one song, let it be in Your Name Lord. And when I need strength in weakness I'll call on Your name, CHORUS: Let it be Yours Let Your holiness pour from my lips. May my thoughts be inhabited Lord Let Your glory fall over me Let it be Yours. BRIDGE: Oh Lord, teach me to die to myself So all that is left is You, oh You Let me eat and breathe on Your Word CHORUS: Let me be Yours Let Your holiness pour from my lips. May my thoughts be inhabited Lord Let Your glory fall over me Let it be Yours.

I Do 04:21
VERSE 1: Lord I feel like a fool. I tasted the fruit again. It seems like I'd realize, if it could open my eyes, Then I'd have seen way back when. PRE-CHORUS: And I need to know why... VERSE 2: I chase the wrong that I desire And replace the death that I deserve In a heart that's grown so cold By a pride becoming so bold And forget about everything I've learned PRE-CHORUS: And i need to know why CHORUS: I do what I don't want to and dont know why. I do what I dont love to and dont know why. VERSE 3: I don't really know how I can live Between the things I do and say Like how I beg for Your grace Stand up and spit in Your face, Take up my mat and run away PRE-CHORUS: And I'm dying to know why CHORUS: I do what I don't want to and dont know why. I do what I dont love to and dont know why.
10.
VERSE 1: I'm all alone, longing to see you 'Cause this airport gray has got me blue I want to go home 'Cause these West Texas plains are far too plain a view Compared to you. CHORUS: You'd be a sight for my sore eyes. You'd be a sight for my sore eyes. VERSE 2: I'm all alone, longing to see you smile But my heart knows as time slows, it'll be a while I watch the clock, and the minutes feel like days So if my watch is right, then my flight's still months away. CHORUS: You'd be a sight for my sore eyes. You'd be a sight for my sore eyes. BRIDGE: And there's an aching in my eyes Because they need to feel your gaze. They just dont realize It's only been four days. CHORUS: You'd be a sight for my sore eyes. You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.
11.
Majesty 10:14
VERSE: Majesty. His majesty reigns supreme in me. Majesty. His majesty reigns supreme in me. PRE-CHORUS: So give thanks to the Lord of Heaven, For His love endures forever. CHORUS: And we sing hallelujah. Hallelujah Hallelujah to my King.
