Praise The Tears
I think I'm going to be okay Inch by inch, day by day My heart's been broken times before The pieces strengthened in my core.
Like brick through a glass door I break every time I shatter, I crumble I scream and I cry
House Of Cards
What happened to your stupid little house of cards? That thing you worked so hard to build so delicately All it took was one good blow To break the barriers of your paper castle
You conned me, you liar You sick little cheat You fake slab of excrement You deplorable creep
The Space Between
I hope you're enjoying the view from up there Better than me, living life - not a care Least of all me, far too late I found out I was the space between rain and the drought.
I Never Did Tell You
I had a lifetime to tell you I loved you, And yet when your life was all through You took your last breath on this earth and I cried For I doubted that you really knew.
You Can Burn My Letters
Don't use my words against me. Who do you think you are? Just because you were my friend You think you're above par?
To God Be The Glory
To God be the glory my heartbroken tears To Him be the praise for my worries and fears For each little thing that is good in me go The glory to God, for I am below.
I'll have you know, I am not broken anymore. It isn't that I've been repaired Or even that I have healed.
Now you're just another verse I wrote Another dream gone down in smoke Another page I threw away Another price I had to pay.
Father Forgive Them
"Father, forgive them! " Christ cried out from the cross They mocked His name and pierced His side, and yet He loved them, lost He died for those who hated Him, beginning to the end Because they need a savior, and He wants to be their friend.
I'D Be Yours
I'd be yours in a second if you'd come around And I'd wait forever if you made the sound I'd ask you no questions and tell you no lies For I see my future when I see your eyes.
What if every Christian started doing All the things our Bible says to do? Helping others come to know our Savior And loving all our fellow Christians too?
Sing, to drown out the devil Laugh, to cover the pain When it feels like the end of your earth has arrived Breathe in, and then do it again.
Up From The Ashes
I stand in the ashes that once were my world
My heart on the ground and my flag still all furled
This is ground zero, it's as low as I've been
But up from the ashes I will rise again.
Battered, this wasteland that once was my life
Ripped all to shreds by a windstorm of strife
I stand in the ashes, awaiting a friend
But up from these ashes I will rise again.
